So after 10hrs of assessments (4 sessions) and 3 doctors/psychiatrists mulling over the findings the conclusion is:

Paranoid Personality Disorder


:unsure:

It explains everything but also brings up new questions and dilemmas...

Unfortunately they didnt give specifics on treatments.. ill have to go back to the GP and with this diagnosis get the psychoanalytic help i may need..

Anyone else have any experience of this?

I never even considered PPD...

It’s strange that there sending your back to your GP. Because its normally down to the psychiatrist to decide the best medication for you, then see how you are on them as it can take a while to find the right one for you and after a while put you back under the care of your GP. MyGP only gives 10 minute appointments and that not nearly enough to discuss MH issues

Wow what a shocker. Hope you are doing okay. That is a lot people deciding what is wrong with you-they might be right. Not sure what they can do for you Hate to see you put on medications. Hopefully some good therapy will work for you. Lots of love and hugs Jules

Do you mind sharing why it explains "everything"? :)
