    I enjoyed your article. One thing that disturbs me is that some of the consequences you listed fit myself. Specifically 1,2 & 5-7. But I don’t believe my parents were emotionally distant. I did divorce from a woman I feel had Paranoid Personality Disorder. Could the same residual affects have come from my failed marriage?
