How to talk about it to my doc
Get a hobby or another interest. It’s hard with our dx but you live and learn. You’ve obvious issues and they don’t give you the meds if your not needing them for most of the populace. I don’t think your too much different.
By all means bring it up. It may be revealing and most probably not. It’s not a bad thing to be involved in your treatment but you’ve a history where your not believing the obvious around here. Thus the advice.
I wouldn’t bring up your suspicions of diagnoses.
Just talk about your symptoms. Then they can diagnose you if they deem it appropriate.
Why if I may ask?
Docs don’t like it when you play doctor Google and push them to diagnose you.
I don’t push anyone
It’s just a ssuspicion of mine
That’s enough for some docs to call it pushing.
Suspicion is not selfdiagnosis but ok
You think you have borderline in addition sz? I would speak to your pdoc. There’s dbt for borderline and other meds for adhd.
Youve posted this before. Im not sure what youre looking for ? Like just ask your dr.
Yea i suspect that
What makes you suspect borderline?
Write a list and bring it up at the doctors,
They may be able to provide guidance on that.
Let’s hope not.
It’s very difficult to treat personality disorders
Yeah but once I told my symptoms to someone online they said it sounds like borderline
Obviously they weren’t a doc but now im worried
Try not to diagnose yourself
Leave it up to your doctors
I’m not diagnosing myself
Just a suspicion
Tell the same aymptoms to a dr and see what they say. I dont know what else were supposed to tell you.
Okay. Will do that once I get to see my doc
someone i know was misdiagnosed as having borderline in the past, if they had known they had schizophrenia the treatment would have been different. the advantage of AP’s is a life saver. I think psychosis feels like a personality disorder because it causes a disconnect in the thoughts. stay strong. it is true if u self-diagnose to a professional or ask for specific meds it makes the professionals think ur “pushing” or have naïve awareness of your condition. I would suggest telling your doctor why you think you have borderline first, maybe there is something they can add for the anxiety or stress. DBT and other forms of CBT can be helpful at learning coping skills.
