Well realistically, a lot of treatment resistant people do have personality disorders, but we also have Major Depression. Some times it's which came 1st the chicken or the egg. Sometimes the meds do work for people with personality disorders. Elizabeth Wurtzell's "Prozac Nation" classic borderline personality disorder, but meds worked for her. Of course meds are never going to solve all our problems, personality disorder or not, we all have issues. But many doctors see treatment resistant patients as personality disordered by definition. The very statement "treatment resistant" is derogatory, implying that the patient is choosing not to respond. Do they use this phrase in oncology for patients who fail to respond to chemo? I don't know, but somehow I doubt it. Cecilia
