Hi HF,

I don't think Dinah included Bipolar as a personality disorder. I'm thinking maybe when she used the acronym *BPD* you thought she was referring to Bipolar....? But actually she did mean borderline personality disorder.

It wouldn't be the first time I've seen this acronym cause confusion on Babble when posters use it to mean both, very different, diagnoses.

Or I could be out to lunch and should BUTT OUT of your thread...!

hahha...just reminded me of a time with old T. (pdoc) when I'd seen someone different one time while he was away for 2 weeks. On our first session back, he starts reading the other person's notes, looking so puzzled, then asks me, "you don't have MS, do you? (meaning: multiple sclerosis)" When I looked equally confused back and said, "noooo, not as far as I know," he explained they kept using the letters *MS* and he just figured out they meant *mood swings.*

Just a dumb, silly story. sorry. Those acronyms can cause a world of confusion, though......
