>I still feel that some aspects of personality would be hard to fit under any definition of illness, ie over concern for others feelings, excessive giult and rumination.

Hi Glenn,

If such symptoms were causing a serious problem it could be very therapeutic to treat them with medication. If such symptoms were very mild (eg. slight overconcern for others feelings) then treating them with medication could be seen as 'cosmetic'. I think that this would apply to all psychiatric symptoms, whether they are part of a recognised diagnosis or not.

Regards,
Ed.

PS. I also take citalopram.
