> It's funny to joke about it, but when you consider that a lot of doctors are going around giving patients diagnoses based on whether they like them or not, it becomes clear that there's a serious problem with the system.

Well, that's what my psychoanayst said a few months ago. She hesitated to dx me "borderline" because that label is often reserved for patients that the docs just can't get along with or understand.

(Although I have to admit that a lot of bipolar II folks are, indeed, good company, some of them aren't; that doesn't mean that they're bad people or that their illness is their fault or that they don't "really" have bipolar disorder at all.)

Right, right, i don't necessarily know whether i'm good company or not, i think the implication was that the borderline label carries such stigma.

> I have to admit I'm sort of curious who your doctor is. Is he actually affiliated with HMS, or did he just go to school there?

Oh, i think he just went to school there. Robert Jimenez is his name.

i don't necessarily agree with his hasty diagnoses; by our second meeting he'd given me 3 pretty extreme ones (and i'm a pretty mellow, soft-spoken, polite person). you think something's amiss?
