It should be a disorder that can be misdiagnosed as a psychological disorder if physiological factors are not considered. b) Briefly discuss the illness selected and how it changes a person’s behavior or personality. Please explain why you selected it. Also, include a paragraph describing how psychologists can differentiate these symptoms to conclude there may be a physiological component to consider when treating the patient.
