She's right, it is.

Are you in the Boston area?
> 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?
I think that diagnoses are just labels, and it sounds like your pdoc knows this. So you don't need to take a psychiatric diagnosis too seriously (and doing so might really be harmful to your self-esteem, so I'd advise against it!).
