The Diagnosis

Being diagnosed was very important to me, people need to belong and to know more about who we are and what caused us to be this way.

The first person to diagnose me, well before the psychiatrists was my best-friend. She is a psychologist and the first to notice it. I supose spending lots of time with me helped. 🙂

Never let the diagnosis define you completely, you are much more than a label. There is much more complexity to a person than a diagnosis ad that diagnosis can change over time. My psychiatrist argues that the diagnosis is not important but it was to me though I understand where she is coming from: we shouldn’t settle for a diagnosis, conditions can change, evolve and some, like BPD (borderline personality disorder) can be in remission. I think she focuses in treating the symptoms than relying on the diagnosis.

Nevertheless, it was important for me to find and connect with people that had share traits with me. I learned and still learn so much about bpd with other bpd paatients. It’s one of the things that motivate me to share my experiences and helpful tips for dealing with this condition. As you may or may not know, sharing is caring and I would love for more people to share and exchange useful advice.

BPD (borderline personality disorder) symptoms include:

º unstable relationships with other people

ºunstable sensee of self

ºunstable emotions

ºfrequent dangerous behavior

ºfeeling of emptiness

ºself-harm

ºextreme fear of abandondment

ºprone to addiction

If you think you might have BPD, my advice is to contact a therapist or a psychiatrist. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Yours,

Scarlett

Writing as much as I can is my goal. Writing soothes the soul and quiets the mind. There's not much to say about me, my words talk louder than any description that I can make.
