writing + psych - disorders

The newest Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM-5,
comes out in May 2013.  Seven new psychological conditions are being considered
for inclusion: hypersexual disorder, hoarding, premenstrual dysphoric disorder,
binge eating disorder, post-traumatic stress in preschool children, learning disorder,
and cannabis withdrawal.  (Source)

As I've mentioned before, many short stories have been inspired by psychological
disorders.  Any come to mind with these, even indirectly?

Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.
