Sorry you are feeling this way it is hard to accept that you are a certain way but try to see that you are still the same person you were before you had the diagnosis - it's just a name given to the symptoms you have.

Hard to put a positive spin on a mental disorder but now you know what's going on you can may be start the journey in to coping with and may be healing and having a diagnosis will mean you will know which direction you need to go in.

I wish you all the very best x

Thank you both. I am doing one on one therapy and the doctor said now she knows what hat Avenue to take in my therapy. Right now the bpd is more prominent than the depression. I have hope but I'm also real impatient about getting well quicker. I keep reading up on bpd and I feel guilty for all the hell I put my mom figure through. With borderline personality disorder the fear of abandonment is there and that for me causes anxiety. I just want to feel and be normal
