30-Day BPD Challenge – Day 8

The questionnaireToday’s question: Do you have any other diagnoses? Which ones?

Yes, I do have other diagnoses other than BPD and I’ve listed the major ones in my About Me page, but I’ll go over them here too.

Oh where to start?

I guess I’ll start with my eating disorder (ED) since that seems to be a major part of my life at the moment. Technically at the moment it would be classified as eating disorders not otherwise specified (EDNOS) since my weight isn’t low enough for an anorexia nervosa (AN) specification although the weight criteria is the only criteria I currently don’t meet. I talk a lot about Ana (slang for anorexia) here in this blog; probably more so than my BPD. Occasionally bulimia nervosa (BN or aka Mia) makes a rare appearance as well although I hate throwing-up and use other purging methods.

I also suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which stems from my rapes and other traumatic events in my life. Anxiety, depression, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and a number of other things have had their label slapped on me at various times during my life.

So yes, I have a number of other diagnoses to go with my BPD. The problem sometimes though is knowing where one diagnoses ends and another one begins since so may of my diagnoses have overlapping symptoms…guess as I pull on the strings of one I’ll just have to wait and see what unravels in the process.

Peace, love, and contentment,
Izzy
