What caused My BPD and OCD anxiety?

frankfkc posted:
In 2010 I was diagnosed with OCD and eventually after living with it I found that I have B.P.D. Borderline Personality Disorder. I come from an emotionally/Physically abusive childhood background and I've traced my emotional fragmentation back to that. My first question is that I remember one time when I was five years old I had told my mom that I hated her. My father grabbed me by my arm and picked me up, dragged me in my underwear and told me to "get out and stay out. This isn't your home get out." Is that possibly the catalyst of all my problems and feelings? I feel allot of pain coming from that memory and it fits in with my anxious state. BPD is a form of PTSD or something. Am I reliving the trauma?
