Anonymous asked: hey i think i have ASPD. do you know if personality disorders can effectively be cured? because peoples personalities change over time dont they Answer: I feel like it’s worth mentioning that personality disorder =/= disordered personality. The nature of the disorder is that it develops alongside your personality and can indeed affect your personality, but ultimately you do not have a broken personality.
That being said, personality disorders don’t really go away 100%, but symptoms can improve and many people do recover.
Edit: Even though some symptoms may persist, some people may consider themselves recovered. With treatment, personality disorders do get better. Maybe not 100%, but they can cause significant less distress than they may cause you right now. Some people choose to never identify as “recovered” because they are still neurodivergent.
