It is true that in the last analysis only those suffering from this disease can understand that no amount of willpower, hygene, psychotherapy will erase was is essentially a biological illness.

Granted that there may be triggers in some conditions, specially the anxiety disorders that can be modified. The underlying illness remains.

I think this is baffling to the "normals" because they have emotions like ours but through the use of behavioral, and psychological tools or sometimes even conditioning, their emotions do not get completely out of control.

Or maybe even that is biological. Maybe normals are like cats, they have a righting instinct that we lack. Their brains "regulate" back to some stasis that is beyond us.

> Kind of what I was trying to say, only more considered, more grounded in fact & certainly less 'ranty'. I omitted to say that I do accept the concept of heterogeneity. However, & I'm guessing here, most of the babble participants fall more on the 'biological' side of the spectrum & so I can't see the purpose of Cam's remarks other than to provoke.
> Reading Cam's remarks was kinda like finding out yr wife of 10 yrs has been cheating on you all this time. Altruistic chap, good psychopharmacologist, & his presence used to define this board, but his take on the origins & cure for depression....well, sad to say, the guy loses pretty much all credibility in my eyes. I realise that Cam's something of a sacred cow rnd here so I'll butt out. J.
