ADHD is on a completely different scale in diagnostics. it's not related to personality disorders. especially because it can be treated and managed.
Again I'm not saying that they are the same, at all, people just mistake it as such. If you get one mental health and one learning needs professional each on the same case, they will come up with different diagnosis despite being provided with the exact same evidence.ADHD is on a completely different scale in diagnostics. it's not related to personality disorders. especially because it can be treated and managed.
Schizos at the very least are usually truly apologetic for their behavior and know it's a mental illness.Breaking up with a BPD is the 2nd most soul-draining thing you can possibly do in life. (#1 of course being staying with a BPD.) Everyone thinks schizophrenics and sociopaths are the true faces of crazy, but they're wrong. It's borderlines.
Use that thing with her mistreating her mother as part of an argument.That's really not the way it works. (Or doesn't work.) They're very different and you can have both at the same time. ADHD is cognitive, meaning that it's an information processing disorder. It's caused by a chemical imbalance and/or malfunctioning chemical receptors, and will usually respond to medications. BPD is a personality disorder. It's effectively a structural problem. You can drug people with BPD but all you can do is dope them up with something like Valium, basically sedating them so that the worst of the swings are moderately less destructive.
BTW, update on my very own BPD:
Last week she had a twenty minute screaming match. The next day she was winding herself up for another argument on her mobile with some unidentified victim, right in front of my bedroom window. I snapped and told her to go elsewhere and that I was sick of hearing hearing her arguing with people, she told me that she never argues anyone ever, I called her a liar and a thief, she stormed back to her room and then... the text messages started coming. And they're nothing shy of beautiful.

So that one subsided until last night, when I attempted yet again to call in some debts. A rather long read, but worth it. Highlights include her threatening to sue me and claiming she has asbestosis.

oh thanks! and yeah I agree, the borderline label gets thrown at girls who behave weird in some way rather often, I believe women are way more likely to be diagnosed with it than men, which is weird, because as far as I know the other PDs are relatively evencPTSD isn't a "real" diagnosis yet; it's not in the DSM.
I do actually agree that Borderline is usually what they are calling cPTSD, though. I think Borderline itself is sort of analogous to "hysteria." It very often just seems to indicated some psych said, "She's a crazy woman, and fuck if i know." I have occasionally wondered how many women were diagnosed with BPD in the past, when psychs didn't see childhood sexual abuse or rape or DV as all that big a deal in terms of causing trauma responses.
Got a few in my bloodline, needless to say I don't talk to them anymore. They are lolcows themselves if they'd only post more online.Of all the personality disorders, this one scares and saddens me the most: https://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/borderline-personality-disorder/index.shtml
The people who suffer from it seem truly sad and pathetic. They are very lonely and they don't really have a "sense of self" to fall back on if they are rejected by other people. They have little to no developed sense of identity. In order to feel "whole" or even human they tend to latch onto other people. If they are rejected, they react with terrible anger and hatred.
Here is a perfect example of borderline:
I think most stalkers are BPD. Any thoughts on this disorder or those who suffer (or are enjoying) it?
I was diagnosed with ADHD, and I am in no way hyper. There are different causes and types of this disorder, if you meet someone with hyperactivity, they're usually male, and they have "theory of mind" difficulties, not as bad as OPL, but they still get into a lot of trouble socially.Are people with BPD are any different than people with ADHD? I've met someone whose diagnose with ADHD and there not as hyperactive as everyone made out to be.
