I have been wondering about this lately. All my life I have suffered from a plaguing condition known as my mother, who shows all the signs of BPD. From what I've read, it's a condition that doesn't respond well to psychiatric drugs and seems to have a lot to do with the amygdala. Gerwyn's post on XMRV and the amygdala got me thinking about whether my mom (who has fibro) might have so little control over her emotions due to XMRV. I would like to see WPI (or someone) look into this. Does anyone else have family members with this problem?
