lol yh I know SORRY for this sensitive topic. but curious on opinions

I have a (diagnosed before anyone comes for me) Mixed Personality Disorder (mixture of OCPD/AVPD traits primarily, possible BPD traits but the psychs i've seen are split on this lol).

Anyway... I was looking for online resources and stuff and was interested that it seems more people have BPD (couldn't say diagnosed professionally or not) than anything else. Or at least people who have BPD like discussing it online more. Barely could find anyone talking about their experiences with other personality disorders.

So, i'm wondering... why? Why does BPD overshadow (at least online) everything else? I heard somewhere that BPD is a 'popular' diagnosis rn among psychs, so maybe that's the reason why. Maybe people with BPD like sharing their experiences more than other people with personality disorders?

btw i don't want this to turn into a PD bashing thread. I was just wondering what people think the discrepancy might be caused by

I would love to hear more people dealing with living with OCPD traits in particular because that's the one I find I struggle with the most I think

I have also heard a lot of women diagnosed with BPD actually are on the autistic spectrum, which I do feel might be the case with me, but... that's a story for another time lol

I think its cause bpd is the least stigmatized/misunderstood compared to the other personality disorders

didnt you get an autism diagnosis a while back? (just asking out of genuine curiosity, no malicious intent)

it's massively over diagnosed - and psychs looooove putting women into that box, because it's an easier way to say "huh, she's hysterical because of trauma in her childhood and/or environment". a lot of it is misogyny simply.

which is really funny, when males are the ones that actually exhibit the most traits of bpd on a daily basis.

basically when I saw the psych, he said autism was a big possibility and we talked about the possibility a lot. He wanted me to fill in a form and answer a few question via email so he could get a better insight. When he emailed me his letter with his conclusions, he said he didn't want to rule autism out, but he thought mixed personality disorder fitted better and it's what he wanted to concentrate on treating/helping. so rly who knows lol

yeah i feel like there's way more treatment given for BPD as well. here at least most people diagnosed with BPD can get dbt for it but for other personality disorders there's really no treatment at all

this is what ive been wondering about lately. i do think BPD might be the new hysteria. it will be interesting to see what the consensus is on this in a couple of decades.

yeah, def. i was reading about OCPD and it's more diagnosed in men because it's perfectionism, obsessions, organisation... and BPD more diagnosed in women because it's focused on emotionally instability... not a coincidence imo

a little basic recommendation i know, but if you havent seen or read girl interrupted (i would recommend reading it over seeing the movie), you should do that. basically susanna kaysen was diagnosed with bpd due to sexist reasons after only a short psychiatric eval and was admitted to a psychiatric hospital for 2 years immediately after (or something i dont remember how long exactly). bpd has been used to diagnose women with hysteria and emotional instability for ages

they used to lobotomise women for no fucking reason, now we are heavily medicated and shamed for having for being women? it's just the same ol' misogyny stick over and over and over

im not an expert, but i think BPD is somewhat a broad term. so many people have it, but i dont think they ahve the same problems, if u kow what i mean? just a thought.

and i also thought i had bpd, cus the shrink said i had "borderline". but she ment borderline psychosis. it was right before BDP was the main "borderline" illness. so. yeh. a slight misunderstanding. didnt really fit my problems, so i was kinda confused for a while.
