    I am thoroughly glad to have found this post. I need a little reminder of the pain every once in a while because I get those frustrating feelings of stuckness, and then I wonder what the problem is. Really, it’s about what the problem was. As this article put it, though, the brain has the capacity to heal and recover.

    Interesting blog. I’d comment that in all cases pathways in the brain change (last sentence) — change doesn’t occur unless new pathways are forged! Repetition in DBT work leads to new pathways — thank goodness!

    hi there Chris: I get that you are trying to establish links between stress and mental illness but cancer derived from mental distress and sexually transmitted diseases STD should not ce in the same sentence unless you are talking about syphilis related dementia or promiscous behaviour and unprotected sexual activities with those acting on those urges. I would hesitate to write something not corelated when you may have a 15 yr old girl looking at your blog trying to decipher feelings of anxiety &/or depression then looking up STD’s to add to her confusion how you can get that from having an anxiety attack? Please reconsider your signs and symptoms listed.
