Anyone else diagnosed with BPD?

Today I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, or by the acronym, BPD. This is a very torn issue for me, as now at least I have a explanation for several of my idiosyncrasies. But on the other hand, I’m reminded of my feelings of being an abysmal disaster. I don’t really want to go too deep into symptom details, but I recognize now how entrench BPD has become woven in my life, which has particularly got worse in recent years. Anyway, does anybody else have BPD? And if so, what really helps to reduce symptoms? Thank you.

I was diagnosed with bpd, incorrectly, as a young woman. Most attractive, young, mentally ill women are diagnosed with bpd as a defensive gesture by pdoc’s to protect the pdoc’s from an accusation of sexual harrassment. Now that I’m older and no longer physically attractive, I no longer carry this diagnosis. Hmmm?

Furthermore, I’ve read in places where health professionals are doubting the validity of this diagnosis.

I was told that’s most likely what I have, but I couldn’t afford the evaluation to get an official diagnosis.
A lot of it seems to fit me, especially when I read how people with bpd relate to the world.
But it could also be ASD, which runs in the family and I’ve been suspected of having.

Who knows

Someone told me it gets better with age. Ive been “downgraded” to BPD Traits lol.

Frankly all i needed was a stonking dose of anti-psychotics lol :smiley:

Went to a live in theraputic community for a year for those with PD’s. That helped alot.

Frankly i reckon you just need to be more aware of your actions on yourself and other people - cos thats when all the personal crises and dramas creep in.

I thought they abadandoned “BPD”. Here at least its now termed EUPD.

I was diagnosed with EUPD traits. This before the BP diagnosis. I was going through a massive depression state and stupidity told the pdoc I felt empty. Feeling empty is a trait of EUPD. When I rebounded and had a manic episode they got rid of the EUPD diagnosis. Now have SZA, BP.

I have BPD as a comorbid DX. But I think it should be replaced with C-PTSD in my case.
