• Quote of the Day
    "The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

I read an article today that I thought was really interesting. It suggests two new diagnostic categories to capture the characteristics often displayed by survivors of chronic childhood traumatisation that is currently (often inadequately) described as comorbid PTSD and BPD. It hasn't really got an abstract and I can't post a link because you have to pay to view it, but I thought I'd post the details for anyone who might be interested and who has access to it through a university library or something. I thought it was really worth the read. :)
