>>As far as myself... If I read Linehan's description of the inner life of a person with borderline personality disorder I stand up and shout "THAT'S ME!!!!". However, thus far my pdocs in my adulthood have ruled out borderline personality disorder as a diagnosis despite my occasional cutting. I tend to use different coping mechanisms. Instead of having a life marked by instability, my life is marked by excessive attachment to stability. That's my coping mechanisms.

first, how would i find Linehan's description of the 'inner life...' i'm very interested to read this.

also, i thought cutting automatically put you in BPD dx? that's what all the T's and nurses told me. if you cut your BPD period...this label was slammed on me like a stack of bricks...i think that's why i rejected it at first. but i'm suprised even with your other comments that they would be hesitant to put you in that category? it seems like you would fit?
but i'm not doc i guess.

thanks for the info.
