Default AMA May Label 'Video Game Addiction' as Disorder

Hey- this could be the start of something great- My dream of collecting long-term disability support due to gaming obsession might yet come true.

OK, raise your hand if you've seen "Miracle on 34th Street." Remember that scene where the prosecution is trying to declare Santa Claus certifiable? Do you also remember how necessary it was that the lawyers be able to cite an unquestionable authority (a psychologist) capable of declaring Santa Claus medically unfit for duty?
That situation could be playing itself out shortly in your world if the American Medical Association succeeds in its proposal to get "gaming addiction" declared an officially recognized medical disorder.
