Sure, the mainstream of psychiatry is only NOW figuring out that “borderline personality disorder” is pretty much a form of PTSD resulting from childhood trauma. But because it was a female-oriented disorder they were reluctant to read the symptoms correctly- easier to diagnose with a personality disorder! They’re “crazy”! They’re only NOW offering a “new” form of PTSD- “C-PTSD”- to those suffering from long-term, chronic traumas; where in the past only war vets could get PTSD..that evolved into war vets and accident and rape/crime victims who got PTSD. Now they’re recognizing that others get it, that similar symptoms arise from repeated traumas which are lower level in intensity (slaps, verbal abuse etc) but consistent over long periods. This reluctance of Psychiatry to see common sense and its slowness to progress reduces its validity as a medical science more than a patient could ever reduce their validity as an important actor with a voice on the field of health. Basic human rights are basic human rights.
