I have to say this because you seem so upset and I don't want it to be so!!...

Please understand that the personality disorder "label" is a controversial one! a lot of people don't realize how much so! I would guess that that's what people are reacting to as opposed to you personally.
It is difficult to separate the "humanity" from the symptoms...if that at all makes sense?? so consequently the personality disorder diagnoses are difficult to hear sometimes......
not because the symptoms aren't true, but because of the stigma that is felt to go along with them - it is a truly complicated issue which I do not hope to clarify here

In my experience (and I've got some interesting experiences ;-) this issue is BIG. I wish you didn't have to feel attacked! ...some really basic questions get raised when we talk about PD's - ie, nature vs nurture, intentionality vs. mercy of the fates, etc

I'm sorry :-( I hope you come back
