Re: The Borderline-Narcissistic-Antisocial Combination
Welcome. Nice to hear your story. Wow! Three Dx's of personality disorder in one person. Well at least we know your PD's provided you with some coping mechanisms as you've made a great start by sharing your story. How do you cope in daily life?
Gee, ????? You say you did the MMPI psychological tests. Are these the paper based 'forced choice' tests. Or, more like indicating degrees of agreement or disgreement with various moral / ethical statements?
I'm really quite interested in this area when used as a diagnositc tool too. And, Who gave you these three Dx's?
I did all the Personality Disorder tests with my psychologist earlier this yaer, and she was absolutely adamant that I did not have Borderline Personality Disorder, despite the 'lady shrink' psychiatrist's Dx.
Then later returned to the 'lady shrink' for (ummm. . . . . .) further discussion and treatment, and 'lady shrink' is just as adamant that I do have Borderline Personality Disorder. - go figure????
Well I kind of worried about the Dx disparity for half a nano second, and decided to speak with lovely new GP, and he's such a sensible fellow, and he talked about there being a 'continum' of symptoms etc.etc.
So that satisfied me, because I know what my symptoms are, and what they are NOT!
TripleThreat33, I do really hope you have or may be able to gain really good medical and psychological support for your Dx's.
Please keep in touch and let us know how you're getting on.
