I have been diagnosed with PD Nos since 2005 after many years of being dxed with schizophrenia then schizoaffective disorder/occasionally bipolar.
I am seen as having long term problems with thinking and behaviour including anxiety/depression/paranoid thinking/mood swings/isolation/lack of confidence and self esteem. My most chronic problem centres round difficulties with social interaction.

What i would like to know is how one deals with the negative effects of a PD when one has been told one is unsuitable for therapy.

How to get rid of personality disorder

Hello,

Western psychiatry does not really know how to deal with the complexity of symptoms that a person with diagnosis of personality disorder presents with.

It is very common - as your case shows - that people are given all sorts of diagnoses and all sorts of treatments first before being told that they have suffer from personality disorder.

There are no medications that treat personality disorder. People are therefore given all sorts of psychiatric medications to control symptoms of depression, anxiety, paranoia etc.

Therapy wise, you can have individual therapy for self esteem, confidence etc., as well as group therapy. Some places have what they call therapeutic communities where people can stay for extended periods of time - and learn social and other useful skills.

So what do you do?

I think you decide to take responsibility of being well and healthy in your own hands. Look into alternatives and learning about your own mind as thoroughly as possible. Find out what is really happening and how you can resolve what is happening.

The following links may have some answers and may offer a 'cure' from personality disorder - if that is what you are looking for.

1. http://www.bluemorphotours.com/

2. http://www.adyashanti.org/

The first one is an alternative 'pure medicine' approach. You can read more about alternative medicines at the following:

The second one is understanding approach. You can do it in your own time, from home.

Hope you are rid of all diagnoses soon.
