Thank you for all your support. My therapist and I discussed it a lot more detail than I thought she would allow. I told my biggest concern was that I thought that she thought the BPD was my major diagnosis. She admitted that there was a time when she thought that, however, she has changed her mind considers major depression (currently in remission) and OCD (currently under some control) as my primary diagnoses. However, she still seems to think that on the Axis II I am BPD. I brought in my Myers-Briggs test scores which put me at an ISTJ personality. She wrote some notes down and did not comment on whether this would change her diagnosis of me re: BPD.

I felt a little bad when I left but I took a Lorazepam right at the time I left and it probably helped. I am not sure how far to push this issue with her. I didn't really get to the point to ask what BPD traits of mine could be fixed. But I did tell her that the diagnosis was similar to a medical diagnosis of Lupus. People with Lupus look fine on the outside and then when the Lupus errupts --- its horrible. She seems to think that the Prozac and Lorazepam along with trazadone at night are keeping the BPD parts of me under control. My next thought is to ask her to tell me what BDP characteristic she sees that I have and let us discuss a game plan on how to fix it. Maybe I'll try that next time. I'll keep you posted over the weekend, because that's when I'm likely to slide a little into depression. I do have symptoms of a Migraine tonight so I will go to bed. I am just so glad that Dr. Bob came up with this concept. Everybody's positive thoughts really help.
