Your situation is no different whether or not you have a name attached to it. I'm not overly fond of labels, but I don't think the outlook for "personality disorders" is so bad as some old books make them out to be. Medication can help some symptoms, therapy can help others. The thing that would most keep you from changing would be a desire not to change.

It doesn't sound like your therapist is hopeless, or putting too much emphasis on the personality disorder.

I totally understand the desire to understand what's wrong, and to have a key. I spent years trying to figure out why I do the things I do. But unfortunately those labels are wholly inadequate to encompass all of you. You are you, with all the strengths and weaknesses that come from being you. Therapy helps you harness the strengths and work around the weaknesses.
