Help finding an article [Feb. 17th, 2013|01:07 pm]

Hi TQC, I'm looking for an article that ran in the NY Times earlier this winter or late last fall. It was a longish feature article about a woman who had suffered from depression and then studied psychology and treatments for depression, and made some pretty profound statements about self-acceptance.

I've tried googling it and skimming through the NYT's online search function, but I'm having a lot of trouble finding it because I can't remember the names of the writer or the woman in the article, or even the approximate date it was published. Does anyone out there remember the article I'm talking about, by any chance? I knew I should have bookmarked it :(

Never mind, I finally found it. It was actually published in 2011, which is why I couldn't find it before. It must have been linked as a related article in something I read this winter. If you're interested, it's here (just be warned that there are some graphic descriptions of mental illness and self-destructive behaviour).

So this post isn't a write-off, will you share something interesting you have read online recently?

An acquaintance who also deals with chronic pain tweeted this article recently, which I found interesting (and validating). #1 especially hit home, because I few days after I first read it I wound up getting a new boss and I really struggled with whether and what to tell him about my fibromyalgia.

A new obsession of mine is the Aphrodite's Child album "666" from 1970. I listened to it the other day and have been playing it ever since. Here's a page with a lot of information on how this album came to be.

Well, I don't have an article, but I really appreciated reading this. I went through DBT for suicidal ideation and depression and I find Linehan's principles invaluable to managing my mental health. Every time I run across a desperate person I want to wave DBT pom-poms :P

I've read Linehan's textbook Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder and the workbook Skills Training Manual for Treating Borderline Personality Disorder. Both are extremely interesting and profound. I think Linehan is considered to be #1 in the field of Borderline Personality Disorder. The fact that it's something she has suffered with, makes it all the more.... ack, can't think of a word. D'oh, my mind just blanked =/ Anyway, this article was really insightful.
