Amazingly, I am currently going through a relatively stable period psychologically speaking. My body, never one to be outdone has instead screwed with my blood-sugars and I have spent the past two weeks using every witch parts of my fingers to test my blood-sugars and ensure they are at a safe level. Joy.
I got the referral letter in the post during the week and as with all types of letters, I am currently struggling to get my head around what it says about me. Least of all because its own lack of grammar implies I have more than one boyfriend (which I don't - I am a strong believer in monogamy).
... is experiencing problems associated with severe depression and anxiety with dissociative hallucination. It is also possible, according to her psychiatrist, Dr X, that X is may experience co-morbid or underlying emotionally unstable personality disorder.
Sorry, but this is the first I have heard of a possible BPD diagnosis... surely they should tell me these things, before passing it on to me in a referral letter??
It is hard enough at times to grapple with severe depression, anxiety and hallucinations... It threw me through a loop when my Psych first suggested I may want to consider anti-psychotics should the hallucinations not improve (they have, btw... yay) but just as things seem to be settling down for me for once (they don't do that often) I get a letter saying I may have BPD....
Now to throw myself through the wringer in an attempt to figure out what that may mean for me going forward.
I will come back when my head is spinning a bit less and I can think in more straight lines.
