Email: 'Christmas Carols' for the Psychologically Challenged

Mark Dombeck, Ph.D. Updated: Dec 20th 2006

This was received today via email from a friend; one of those letters that makes the rounds. I'm not at all sure of who wrote it or where it came from originally. As it is the time of year for many readers, and as it is kinda funny if you approach it in the right spirit (we are well aware these are serious disorders, but we can still appreciate a good joke, right?), here it is:

Christmas Carols for the Psychologically Challenged


  1. Schizophrenia -- Do You Hear What I Hear, the Voices, the Voices?

  3. Amnesia -- I Don't Remember If I'll be Home for Christmas

  10. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder -- Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
