Thanks, I appreciate your feedback. I can’t footnote my work, but I would draw your attention to the work, of Bessel Van Der Kolk, Gordon Campbell, and the research of the NEA-BPD. This article, is for the lay reader, myself included, who are trying to make sense of a diagnosis. It is simplified for the sake of clarity. Unfortunately, a 4 minute read, cannot adequately do justice to the complexity of the brain. However, I wrote it to give other people hope and insight into how the mind is shaped by experience.
