    There really isn't straightforward medical tests to identify mental illness. It isn't the same as a medical condition that can be determined by irregularities in blood tests, x-rays, etc. The diagnosis is based on what you tell them and if you meet a certain number of criteria on a checklist. As more is learned about you and the issues you face, your DX may change. Please try to work with them so they may be able to help you deal with your issues.

    :laugh: I know what you mean. I think the best sentence that I've heard is "She is a complex person with complex needs." Then he went on to diagnose me with a tonne of things, my sister, my girlfriend but of course not my parents because they are 'normal.'

    Better to be complex than simple? We wouldn't want to make it easy on anyone since it isn't easy for ourselves. :blink:

    Professionals place less emphasis on diagnosing people these days.
