> Well realistically, a lot of treatment resistant people do have personality disorders,

What would you estimate to be the percentage?

> Of course meds are never going to solve all our problems, personality disorder or not, we all have issues.

I see a lot of people writing this here on Psycho-Babble, and I must say that I feel insulted that someone should assume this of me. Why must I have issues just because I have a biological brain disorder?

> But many doctors see treatment resistant patients as personality disordered by definition.

I have never been given this impression by any of my doctors in my 25 years of failed treatments. I have never heard of this axiom.

> The very statement "treatment resistant" is derogatory,

I have never heard this.

> implying that the patient is choosing not to respond.

I am fortunate not to have been made to feel this way by my doctors. I know better.

I don't mean to be adversarial, but my experience with psychiatry does not match yours - fortunately. I hope I am not in the minority. It might depend upon from what generation the practitioner learned his trade.
