Hi Phillipa,

My therapist is my PDoc. Diagnosis-depression and anxiety, which isn't really important since its caused by an underlying childhood attachment issue..no, I don't have a formal (or informal) diagnosis of a 'PD'; those are just tendencies that explain deep core feelings and unconscous motivations or symptoms (you can learn alot about yourself from reading in depth about them)..you have to have the symptoms for a long time to be diagnosed, and I had never (yet) met the full criteria for any of those I listed.

My symptoms usually tend to be transient and temporary, changing throughout the years, though I have some more permanent dependent issues related to the attachment that were hidden for many years..although they were non existent years ago, that does not mean I did not have the issue then; its just your defense mechanisms push it out of your conscious until your mind gets too tired to do it any longer which results in depression or anxiety.

As far as the schizotyal goes I hadn't thought about it before and am going to ask my doctor what he thinks about that possibility. i cant' be diagnosed with it, however, if the symptoms are temporary. Maybe I am at the onset of schizophrenia, who knows.

Hopefully some of those schizotypal symtpoms will lessen when I am able to eliminate or reduce some of my life stressors (no, I am not referring to my mother here)....

Thanks for writing :)
