Has anyone been diagnosed with adjustment disorder? Like PTSD but without the war... high incidence of suicide and self harm

'Traits of' after leaving an abusive relationship. That was over 12 years ago and I now believe it was probably just a trait if my BPD, but I'm no expert. I took 2 overdoses, once I even left a note, self harm increased, and traits of PTSD that left when my partner was hospitalised and I felt 'safe' again. I moved home and jobs and started again when I recovered :)

My psychiatrist said he was worried that I’d be incorrectly diagnosed with BPD, when he believed my situation was environmentally induced

Wow how interesting! So just request that diagnosis is put off for a period of time (months-a year) and see if your symptoms improve when you get 'level' again?
