    Hi peeps,

    So I'm seeing my pdoc tomorrow and going to be talking about me having borderline PD. One pdoc ive seen says I definately have it, but this one who I've seen more regularly and knows me more just thinks I have traits.

    I've looked up the diagnostic criteria and don't think I fit with the 5/9 you need.

    I was just wanting to know if there's anyone else out there who has BPD?

    i've been diagnosed with it with a really transparent /crude questionnaire with an ED psychologist.

    if you're unhappy with the diagnoses you can talk to your doctor and ask him why he thinks you have BPD?

    i personally don't like the diagnoses as it covers up situational things and pathologises my feelings and doesn't listen to my past. i remember reading a lot of people with CPTSD have been diagnosed with BPD rather than CPTSD and chronic trauma isn't ever addressed properly because it would make treatment a lot more difficult....
