thanks for the clarification Dinah...i think that made it easier for me to understand.

and about the misdiagnosis on your part, i think i find this most frustrating about anytype of diagnosis in the mental health field...they hear about family history and automatically put you in that box... no questions...

and yes...i think PD is SO judgemental...anyone hears axis II and many don't even considered them illnesses and write them off to 'attitudes', which i think is Awful!
and honestly, i even think that the definition of BPD is often different from therapist to therapist...i saw this personally between several of the T's i saw when i first got dx of that. i just didn't feel that i fit the category very well, i didn't have fears of abandonment, i was in a good relationship...etc.etc, but i did cut and i had some bouts of rage and trouble getting out of my depressive state...i guess that was enough. so i just wish the stigma would stop so that they would study these disorders more so the understanding and better diagnosis would be there also.
sorry you struggled with you T about that so much. it's Very frustrating to be put in a category that you Really don't feel you 'belong' in.

thanks Dinah.
