Deerock--maybe you're therapist doesn't agree that having a 'personality disorder' or as she says a 'disorder of the self' is the same as having 'something fundamentally wrong' with you, as you wrote above. People are scared of labels, and rightfully so--it allows us and others to pigeonhole each other.

If she or you believe there is something 'wrong' with you--like incurable cancer-- or being born without kidneys--this make the therapeutic situation seem futile.

Personality disorders exist on a spectrum. We all have the elements--this I believe.

Maybe you therapist is trying to keep you from battering yourself with a label.

sorry--more than two cents worth, perhaps,
