That's extremely insensitive and unnecessary! Regardless of whether she could see them or not, she shouldn't have said those things to you. Sorry to hear that you were dismissed in that way.

I would be interested to know why your doctor isn't taking you seriously? How long have you had BPD for? You need to find another pdoc who listens to you. I had BPD first time I got diagnosed and that changed to Schizoaffective disorder after a short while so it can be done even when one is first diagnosed with a shitty illness like BPD. What are you telling your docoter?

I am telling my doctor everything but he just won't listen to me at all all he keeps saying its bpd and nothing else he thinks I am attention seeking that's what he puts on the letter I get from him after I have seen him

Voices are not indictive of Schizophrenia
What I would do is if you think you got Schizophrenia is find out about Kurt Schneider's first rank symptoms.

It's a cluster of symptoms that many psychiatrist go by and maybe it will give you some clarity rather than self diagnosing.

If your doctor isn't listening maybe go into A&E for more immediate assistance. I believe they would need to do another psych evaluation and you could see a different doctor while there who may take you more seriously. May mean a few days in hospital but at least they would take you seriously. Take someone with you who can be a witness for you as well.
