Patient :I haven't been to the doctor lately but I've been researching what could be wrong with me and I came across a disorder called Borderline Personality Disorder. I looked up the symptoms and I have all 9 criteria for bpd. I haven't been officially diagnosed with this but if I have all 9 criteria, does that mean I have it?
Thank you for writing to us.
It is not possible for you to diagnose BPD by yourself. Understand that you cannot diagnose it because if you are depressed even a little bit, your judgement of your answers to the questions will change.
See a Psychiatrist or a Counsellor to reach a diagnosis. Hope this helps you.
