hi carebear, you may be absolutely right about the dsm. my closest therapist was shocked when someone else labled me borderline. you are also right about the label sticking. when I got this 'delightful' label I had a 15 yr. old foster son who was robbing my neighbors, the grocery store, and then broke into a neighbor's house. the stress was nearly unbearable. i did yell alot, which he told the therapist and i cried alot. my pdoc calls me a soft borderline because i function fairly well, don't drink and don't call her in the middle of the night. unfortunately I think this label is correct, but sooo stigmatizing. no one should get this label. your doc was smart in giving you an all encompassing label. sure wish mine was so smart. terrics
