    Hi! I need to do a huge project for my psychology class on a psychological disorder and I'm looking for a really interesting disorder. Something besides ADD or OCD or something like that. There needs to be lots of articles about it on the web though. What do you think? If I can't find anything I may just do OCD.

    Thanks!

    Pica? ..isn't that the compulsion to eat non food items?

    Yah, I'd say that's interesting and you can find nearly anything on the web these days.

    or maybe bipolar disorder? That's a super common diagnosis right now probably lots of info.

    Post tramatic stress disorder(PTSD) has a large variety of symptoms some easily recognized as PTSD and some not so easy. As in my husband has Pseudo seizures which are brought on by PTSD. Agenesis of the corpus callosum/Absence of the Corpus Callosum can also be associated in causing different psychological disorders. These two thing can be an interesting read and have a lot of info to add in an essay.
