Hi again Twilah 🙂 — Thank you for your gracious clarification. I had a feeling it was just a matter of semantics… I think you, me and Nomadic are pretty much all of the same mind, but that perhaps we just express things differently. I do think it’s particularly valuable to prove points by showing the disparate ways mental versus physical disorders are treated and named. I guess language in general just causes problems! (For a good novel on the subject, read “A New York Trilogy” by P. Auster. That’s the former lit major in me speaking, I apologize…!). I have a feeling if you and I met in person we’d be kindred spirits. Your writing style speaks to me and you’re clearly a formidable philosopher. I tried to visit your blog but the URL appears to not be working. I literally just got out of the hospital today following the last round of surgery from my own suicide attempt in the fall; which is the only reason I allowed myself the “luxury” of reading and responding to MIA today. I’m really grateful to have read your work and hope I can find time to read more soon. Thanks again.
