So, I already started a thread in the recovery forum, but I will start one here as well. That's my official dx. I do not agree with it, but that's what's in the record. I do think I have something not right, but not that (I honestly think I actually have BD.)
This one definitely has a stigma. The weird thing for me is that I am around people all the time that say I do not have BPD. I want people to get to know me as a person. Part of me wants to start a blog. I love writing. My hope is to get people to see me as a person and not a dx. Perhaps change the perception of the BPD dx. I am trying my hardest to make something of myself, not only for my benefit, but to show others that 'yes, you can have this awful scarlet letter on you, but you can still do wonderful things in life.'
Anyone else have the dx of BPD? What do people say to you (or do people even know)?
