Jesse Jackson Jr. Is Being Treated for a 'Mood Disorder': Is the Disorder Real or Fabricated?

What's a mood disorder? Ask Jesse Jackson Jr. According to his office, the Democratic Representative from Illinois is "receiving intensive medical treatment at a residential treatment facility for a mood disorder." But don't worry: he's "expected to make a full recovery."

So, what does having a mood disorder even mean? There was a time when they used to call it having a "nervous breakdown," but now the description for the mental illness has been replaced with something much more clinical and politically correct. "Mood disorders" can either stem from depression or mania and when combined, can even lead to bipolar disorder. But calling it a "mood disorder" is opening up a whole new can of worms. Do you think the disorder is legitimate -- or is it just a simple case of stress and anxiety?

WASHINGTONPOST.COM reports:
Rep. Jesse Jackon Jr.’s exact diagnosis isn’t known; “mood disorders,” however, generally come as either depression or mania, or a combination of both.

    He's either an alcoholic or he's hopped up on drugs....either way he should be kicked out of politics.

    He learned to play the 'victim' from one of the best known 'victim/race hustlers-baiters' around...his Father.

    If his psychiatrist is calling it this maybe it is. How can anyone know either way and we are allowed mood swings from time to time.

    Mood disorders are real, but the underline subject is this....if the guy is too sick to get his butt to Washington and do his job, then he needs to quit and they need to have a special vote to get a new rep in there.

    The disorder is real. Only time will tell if he has the malady or not. Maybe, his being under investigation has bought it on. Yay or nay?

    Mood disorder is the new exhaustion. Remember all those celebrities back in the day that were hospitalized for the dread disease of exhaustion or sometimes "nervous breakdown?" Those were euphemisms for what is now commonly called addiction. I remember thinking "wow, I'm tired, a rest in the hospital sounds nice...." I've heard other speculations that it's alcoholism or even that there are some allegations about to show up which JJJr might be dodging....

    Mood disorder does exist and is real. If he really has the problem or is just using it due to legal problems, I don't know.

    Probably some made up name to label a condition as an ailment so it can qualify for insurance coverage and excuse the person's behavior. That's done quite often. Decades ago, alcoholism was labeled a habit then reclassified as a disease so it could be covered by insurance.

    Could this have anything to do with his/Obama's district being a war zone?? 500 homocides and on the rise. Of course, that is the norm in most of our large cities under the progressive rule. A 7 year old girl (black) gunned down selling lemonade outside her home; black drop-out rate over 50%; those progressives really look out for us, HUH ??
