I'm new to this board,( and i only have an i phone to type on- no computer so my spelling might be off cause i cant type on this thing very well) i have been diagnosed professionally with bipolar type1 with psychotic features, severe general and social anxiety, add, and a year ago bpd. i agree with the anxiety. one p said i didnt have bipolar but was bpd. i didnt agree with bpd. i dont have the halmark love or hate alternate thing with people. i dont have stormy relationships. i have been with my husband for 32 yrs. i read about the dbt thing however and i have got to get that! I'm going to my p next tuesday and im going to ask her about it. this is frustrating typing on an i phone cause it just takes so long to type. does anyone not have trouble with relationships and still be bpd? i have a few of the symptoms of bpd. low self esteem, lack of worth, extreem mood problems dont like to be aroind people i dont know, and afraid to be in social settings because i might say something stupid or act inappropriately theres alot more. i can tell you this for sure, as you go on in life and big things happen to you, you can go to a different psychologist for each big thing and each psychologist will diagnose you with something elseView Thread
