Borderline Personality Disorder

PostPosted by verdilak » Sun Nov 14, 2010 3:22 am



The 256 combinations of symptoms that can lead to a diagnosis is something that is very wrong with the current criteria. There are a few that are really necessary for the diagnosis to have any meaning; the DSM casts too wide a net.

I should also note that Borderline Personality disorder is TREATABLE. People do get better. Lots of them. It's not a death- or permanently-crazy sentence, not at all.

Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me."--Ferris Bueller, 1986

This is pretty spot on. I was diagnosed BPD and schizotypal about 11 years ago. I just don't trust medications and can't afford psychotherapy, and have thus not been treated for BPD (not that I think it would work anyhow because of the schizotypal disorder).
