    Unsure of Diagnosis

    So about two years ago I was diagnosed with BPD and to me it makes perfect sense but to the people around me...They kinda write me off when we discuss it. I totally see it in me, maybe not as severe as some but now they have me wondering if the diagnosis is correct. My family thinks I'm just manipulative, impulsive and irresponsible. I started with cutting when I was young, then drinking, drugs, abusive relationships, impulsive dangerous behavior. It's been a pattern and I'm wondering if anyone else has had issues with family and friends believing diagnosis of BPD and how did you get them to come around?

    my fam thinks o so you're overly emotional no biggie!
    they don't get the whole thing. So basically it comes down to that most people don't get mental illness.
    May God walk before you. b.e.f.
