Due to personal reasons, I haven’t seen the doctor in years. I’d say it’s been at least 6 years since I went to get a check-up or anything. I moved this past year and I’ve found a doctor whom I plan on scheduling an appointment with eventually. I’d like to get answers to mental health issues I’ve been dealing with since I was 13. I have talked to my doctor about the possibility of having depression - but he didn’t think there was anything wrong with me since it wasn’t constant. Ever since I was 17, when I did a school project on borderline personality disorder, I’ve felt like I finally had an answer. I remember reading about it and thinking, “wow that sounds familiar.” Since, I’ve done a little more research and found that I had been living with several of the traits for years now, I just never could figure out how to explain it as the one time I did, I was denied that anything was wrong with me. I’d like to speak to my new doctor about it, but I’m not sure how to go about it. I don’t want to go in saying “I think I have borderline personality disorder” but I don’t know how else to explain what’s wrong with me. Help?
