Re: Is 'Dr. Sanity' an undiagnosed BPD? *Triggers* Quintal

I have to say this whole thread makes me really uncomfortable--hurt and angry perhaps.

Part of the reason is that once upon a time I was diagnosed as BPD and went through intensive inpatient treatment so that by the time I completed treatment at one of the best private hospitals in the country, I was not considered BPD anymore.

Also, I have csa issues that I don't let interfere with my work and never have. If they did, I would take a LOA. So, I am not ready to condemn everyone in the field of psychology, my field, with how horrible they are if they had a diagnosis of BPD or narcissistic (there is normal narcissism too). I don't deny there are bad therapists out there practicing. Bad gastro doctors, bad neurosurgeons, bad internists, bad pulmonary doctors, bad kidney doctors, etc, bad nurses, you name it--bad plumbers, roofers, bricklayers, etc etc.

I just am not willing to paint a whole profession as irresponsible for the ones that are bad. There are remedies. For those who have had bad experiences, you can contact the licensing board for that profession in your state, and you can file a complaint. Even if nothing comes of it, if enough people start filing complaints about that person, then it will be looked at for sure. Who knows, maybe others have already filed complaints against the people some here have seen and who were really bad in terms of violating boundaries and other stuff. So, take action.
