Re: BPD diagnosis?

That is super duper awesome that you can recognise when things are getting overwhelming when you are driving. Smiley Happy

 

Got any plans for today? I may or may not be crocheting and reading RO at the same time.

Re: BPD diagnosis?

@Bree-RO yeah I'm lucky I don't live too far away from PB Smiley Happy. I ended up self-harming. (but no, don't need medical attention)

 

@stonepixie got a psych appointment at 2:30, and I don't know how to bring any of this up. I'm scared of what'll happen

Re: BPD diagnosis?

Getting a new diagnosis is quite scary, I don't blame you for feeling this way. But remember, with the right diagnosis, you can get the right treatment. Smiley Happy Hope everything goes well, @lokifish

You've got this.

Re: BPD diagnosis?

@redhead sorry for the late reply; I've been off the forums for the last few days. The appointment actually went well, though he was a little put out by some of the stuff in the referral letter. He basically said that while I likely do have some sort of PD, labelling me with a stigmatising diagnosis isn't going to provide any benefit. Which I agree with. He said he'd ring my GP at some stage to talk about it.

 

I feel like shit at the moment though Smiley Sad

Re: BPD diagnosis?

It is great that you are able to work with your psycholgist, especially as @stonepixie has said, the right diagnosis means the right treatment Smiley Happy

Do you have any plans for tonight or tomorrow? Anything you are looking forward to?
