"This article grossly misrepresents the DSM. If any of you have ever picked up the DSM you would know that one symptom most disorders share is that it must be profound enough to impede normal functioning."
And that's what I'm worried about, Xcalibur. What is "normal functioning"?? Because personally I'm pretty much dysfunctional, ha downright antisociall .. I don't watch TV, I don't eat junk food, I don't like "Authority", I don't "get with the program", etc.etc.etc. .. so while I'm quiet happy being me, I'm sure there is someone out there who would like to change that, make me a bit more "normal".

Not necessarily. Things like PTSD cant happen biologically - only traumatically.
There is researche in to if IF there is a biological basis that may make people more SUSCEPTIBLE, but dont know for sure...
