Just to be clear, I wasn't speaking of Phillipa. I assumed that was the title of the article?

I don't think you need to accept that the biological stuff can't be changed. If you use therapy to help you cope with the life issues, and to help you make different choices so that your responses lead to the best possible outcomes, it may be time to turn to medications for the underlying issues.

I've found medications that help me. I guess I see it as any other chronic condition. I would be pretty p*ssed if, as a diabetic myself, I read a headline saying that recovery for diabetics was unlikely. Sure, it's unlikely my pancreas will ever start to secrete insulin like a nondiabetic's. But with medications and healthy choices, my future as a diabetic doesn't need to be all that grim. And I'd find that way of looking at my issues to be... non-headlineworthy.
