Anonymous asked: ok so i asked my psychiatrist about me having bpd, and she asked me what symptoms i relate to, and i said all of them because i do. and she said, yea, you have all the symptoms but i just dont think you have it. thats it. she didnt go through the symptoms with me or anything. she literally acknowledged i had all of them and then said its a complicated process to diagnose someone with bpd. and im just confused..? because she literally said YOU HAVE ALL THE SYMPTOMS but you dont have it.
Answer: A psychiatrist who doesn’t communicate with you isn’t a good psychiatrist. She should be explaining to you why she doesn’t think you have something and what ideas she has about the presence of the symptoms. If possible, find a new psychiatrist.
