interesting what you said about PD not being temporary states....i previously had the dx of BPD, but don't anymore. so does that mean that it was misdiagnosed? (which i believe...i feel my issues before were directly related to both my bipolar-and not on good med combo, and my burried issues that i had not yet talked or remembered fully in therapy)

but i do feel the ST label was a good fit, i guess i don't see anything wrong with that label, it just makes me a little...'quirky' (hehe) as long as it does some good, but so far having that label has only added a label. no one (therapist or pdoc) really recognizes it or ever talks about it??? so what's the point?
my old T (the good one) mentioned it a couple times but we were honestly so busy dealing with the other cr@p that we never really got a chance to talk about that issue.
Great topic folks.
