Bipolar with histrionic features?

Once I got a look at my chart and noticed the histronic features added there.
After reading up on it, I thought it was a mistake. How could I be these things? (HPD) Histronic Personality Disorder has some socially troubling aspects.
I have since learned that a lot of the features in the array of other disorders overlap on bipolar disorder. In that, I may not have the disorder but the symptoms can show up.
Upon reading the HPD symptoms I could relate to some, just as I can in other disorders, especially during mania. It was a good thing to learn and had less stigma attached the label.

I had to have a read about that one. Polar opposite of what I am. I'd love to know how they differentiate between all of these overlapping disorders. Then again, that's why so many get misdiagnosed - they're just best guessing!

I think it is a matter of how the patient presents. For instance, I apparently was showing some symptoms of (HPV) and bipolar, most likely in the hospital setting. I perceived all of the really negative symptoms when I started researching. Now, it is most likely I had some but certainly not all. No doubt, I was over-emotional and some of the others.
The docs certainly did not know if I was a flirt. The overlapping is common in (BPD) as well.

HPD not HPV and I also use too many commas or not enough. Never could get that right.
