Borderline Personality Disorder. And anxiety.

Old diagnoses are Attachment Disorder, Depressive Disorder, Sub Threshold Depression.

Two sort of diagnoses of Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder and Avoidant Personality Disorder.

It amazes me how many people on here have multiple diagnoses, surely it's unusual for so many disorders to be co-morbid. Like I understand some things like depression and anxiety going hand in hand, but I've not heard that having one disorder puts you at risk for having others.

Mine are plain old depression and anxiety, though there's been a bit of talk as to wether my depression is psychotic depression or not. And PTSD has been mentioned a few times, but then again a lot of things have been mentioned once or twice, it's like they just throw out random diagnoses and then change thier mind.





Reality leaves a lot to the imagination

Depression, school phobia (weird one), anorexia.

Now - bipolar.



The Mole was bewitched, entranced, fascinated. By the side of the river he trotted as one trots, when very small, by the side of a man who holds one spell-bound by exciting stories; and when tired at last, he sat on the bank, while the river still chattered on to him, a babbling procession of the best stories in the world, sent from the heart of the earth to be told at last to the insatiable sea.

My gf is diagnosed with BPD and Bi Polar, as well as other things.

Im diagnosed with;
Generalised/ social anxiety disorder with panic attacks
Emetophobia
OCD
Anorexia (previously) Now I would imagine Im ED-NOS
Borderline Personality Disorder
Depression


Personally, I feel my main problems are BPD, ED-NOS, Anxiety (in all places) and obsessive and intrusive thoughts. I am emetophobic though.

I was very depressed at one point, but my mood swings can be attributed to the BPD, so it doesnt really count.

My first diagnoses were Anorexia, OCD and Depression when I was 16. Though things have changed since then cos the adult team think I have BPD, but they still realise I have a lot of anxiety related problems/disorders and an ED.

I find it weird that people have current diagnosis of BPD and depression (I'm not saying anyone is lying, just that I find it weird) because normally BPD encompasses depression, there is not normally a seperate disorder.

My old diagnoses of sub threshold depression were basically disgregarded after I got my BPD diagnosis.

Aye, I also find some of the comorbid stuff a bit strange, like a lot of people who have comorbid borderline + whatever diagnoses, bpd encompasses so many symptoms.

Doctors do tend to throw around labels, but it's different to having an official diagnosis, I believe.

Like, a lot of my symptoms could be diagnoses on their own, but aren't because I'm diagnosed with BPD. For instance the ED Specialist said I have Bulimia in the context of BPD. I also suffer from panic attacks and such.

I'm diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and Depression with Psychotic Features. I do find it confusing that I have bpd and depression, but my understanding is they are two separate disorders in y case because whilst have the crazy ups and downs of bpd I also have episodes of depression that causes psychotic symptoms that have previously been mistaken for full blown schizophrenia before, whilst it is actually apart of the depression (and I've been through the schizoaffective stuff, I think they dropped that, it hasn't been mentioned lately).

In adolescent services I was diagnosed with severe/extreme ocd with predominant obsessive thoughts and poor insight. But I'm pretty sure I don't have it anymore, and various doctors have agreed or disagreed with me. I wouldactually question if I had it in the first place.

Sorry, not saying I disbelieve anyone, more that I'm interested. Hope this hasn't offended, and osrry for the long diagnostic ramble.

We are not just our diagnoses, remember that always.

I was diagnosed with depression/anxiety and then later with PTSD, I am unsure if PTSD encompasses depression.

I was also diagnosed with ADHD, but I've never been on medication for that. One of my doctors suggested that I may not have ADHD, that it may just be that it fit without any knowledge of what was going on in my life that would actually account for my symptoms. I have a feeling that he was probably right.
