I always thought I was Bipolar and misdiagnosed with Major Depression.
I am 52. I am seeing a new therapist (for 6 months now)..insurance coverage changed. I am starting to believe that BPD does apply to me.
i think I know everything and have researched many mental disorders but never really looked at BPD. Come to find out there is not alot of research on BPD...certainly not as much as there is with Bipolar..and the 2 are very similar..hard for therapy to differentiate sometimes. And I will tell you...the way we behave in sessions is very important...its very important to be honest and to be yourself as much as possible for a correct diagnosis. Here are some things I have discovered recently about me and BPD:
I am difficult to live with. I snap at everything....I get frustrated easily...i also left a very good paying job...I do things impulsively...I am always bored..so I leave the house all the time...things have to be my way and go my way or I am not happy. I give silent treatments...I have strict bed times for myself...I get very mad if anyone is lingering when I am trying to leave for an appointment I'm attending. I'm sure living with me can be h*ll.
