I know that Cartesian dualism is a belief system and not a fact. Psychological trauma affects the brain and the body. Mental health therapy is no different than physical therapy. She mentions distraction twice and the focus of the article is the immense monetary cost of what has happened to her including burying herself in an expensive hobby.
