Dinah,
You are so sweet. You must be one of the kindest, compassionate, level-headed people I have ever meant. I really mean that. Your advice always perks me up and makes me realize the reality of the situation. I tend to think the worst of every situation, and I'm not very good at reading peoples emotions or feelings, so often I get a completely different perception of whats really going on. I guess thats part of the BPD. I wish I didn't have that. Honestly, even with the OCD and anxiety/panic attacks, my life would be so manageable if I wasn't Borderline. I'm still trying to get fixed. Haven't given up yet. :) Thanks again Dinah. *Hugs*

I doubt it's even all that personal. Psychiatrists more and more are doing medication management rather than therapy. He might just want to make sure you get more therapy than he can provide.
