just wanted to chime in -- you can do this, deerock.

everyone has traits that look like personality disorders; a lot of diagnosis is totally relative and a matter of "taste" in some way, though the doctors try to make a science out of it. i think garnet is right to stress that the "symptoms" of a personality disorder are better understood as ways to cope with awful situations.

we have learned ways to cope with awful situations.
sometimes those coping strategies don't work out well in the long run.
but with a T -- the tool, as garnet said, to our improvement -- we have a shot at learning new strategies, new ways to cope that are more adaptive and better for us and the people we love and who love us

i hope you're feeling better soon -
