Recently I was diagnosed with BPD and I'm having real problems accepting the diagnosis. It hasn't help that neither of my previous shrinks who seen me bothered to tell me that this is what they felt I had, I had to find out from a CPn when I was taken to the hospital by the police. I was told that was what the shrink had written in my notes and told to look it up on the internet. I'm really scared about the implications of this diagnosis, particularly what it will do to my chances of ever working again and what the reactions of other people will be if they find out. Somehow it just felt easier to deal with when I thought that it was just severe depression that I had. How did other people feel when they were diagnosed with BPD?
