Went to see him today. I've been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder but today he said I have borderline as well.

There were some previous pdocs that also picked it up but I didn't mention it to him. It was therefore interesting that he also believes I have it

I think what made him diagnose it is my tendency to self sabotage, confusion about self and my violent moods swings and aggression. Also I have had frequent urges to injure my arm. My husband gets scared of me when my temper flares up.

So I guess it makes sense.

Hopefully they can help you with both sets of problems you have to cope with.

I cannot imagine what it must be like to have both and what you have endured in your life. Im sorry for what you have gone through. Keep working with your therapist, be strong, you can get through this.
