I Need A New Diagnosis

Water angel
First I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder and now my psychiatrist thinks that I may have borderline personality disorder. Yeah, I'm depressed, but I gotta have more than major depression. BPD? I seriously doubt it. -sigh-

Aw. Cheer up! You're only as sick as you believe yourself to be. Don't feed so much into it. It'll only make it that much more real/obvious. It very well could just be a mis-diagnosis. No self fulfilling prophecies, missy.

i agree, don't worry TOO much about diagnosis. just let your psychiatrist know all of your symptoms and let them worry about it, and you worry about getting better.

I have BPD.
It's manageable with meds.
It's nice to actually have a diagnoses as to why I do the things I do.

Personality disorders are said to be the easiest for people to see in themselves, as opposed to mental dissorders. If you look up the symptoms, you should get a good idea if you have it or not. It's one of those things that you look at, and if it reflects you, you know it. That's how I came upon it. You've probably looked up info about it by now. But it's also really useful to find things that aren't all scientific jargon, that you can look at and actually say, yeah that's me, or no, that's not me.

Ha! I did more research on it since then and now I know that I have to have it. My damn psychiatrist said that I was empty (which I'm not) so I have it. He didn't really explain it to me well, but I looked it up and talked to a psychologist about it.

I sent you an e-mail :)
I tried to send it hours ago, but it didn't work for some reason.
I think that you should have it now, but if not, then let me know.
Oh, this is wondrous2. I was too lazy to sign off and then log back on to that username.

Well... I gave you the wrong email adress, um fortunately no one has that incorrect email adress, which is why it didn't work. I'm sorry. It's really been a while since I've felt *this* stupid. :$

But on another note, I keep 2 LJ's as well. My other one is more for writing, dreams, and poetry and stuff.
