Personality Disorder Board Index

I am new to these boards and would like to give you all a little background on my experience with personality disorders.

My screen name says it all. I am a triple threat. I have been diagnosed with borderline, narcissistic personality disorders with anti-social traits. Yeah what a handful. I pity the man who ever wants to marry me. Anyway, I love who I am though and therapist after therapist wants to change me. The disorder that I'm having the most problems with is the borderline. It has caused so many failed relationships with men and women. I don't know what I hate more, having conflicting emotions like all the time... I love you, No I don't I hate you, No I don't etc... OR the fact that people just don't understand BPD. They don't understand all the emotional issues that go along with it. I don't need to rant on about that.

I was diagnosed with Narcissistic personality disorder when after completing a psychological testing that lasted FOREVER. According to my MMPI results, I scored perfect on the narcissistic scale. This is also how I managed to get a diagnosis of Anti-social traits.

I mean how many people can say they're a triple threat?? Just one... me.
Hi TripleThreat33,

Welcome. Nice to hear your story. Wow! Three Dx's of personality disorder in one person. Well at least we know your PD's provided you with some coping mechanisms as you've made a great start by sharing your story. How do you cope in daily life?

Gee, ????? You say you did the MMPI psychological tests. Are these the paper based 'forced choice' tests. Or, more like indicating degrees of agreement or disgreement with various moral / ethical statements?
I'm really quite interested in this area when used as a diagnositc tool too. And, Who gave you these three Dx's?

I did all the Personality Disorder tests with my psychologist earlier this yaer, and she was absolutely adamant that I did not have Borderline Personality Disorder, despite the 'lady shrink' psychiatrist's Dx.
Then later returned to the 'lady shrink' for (ummm. . . . . .) further discussion and treatment, and 'lady shrink' is just as adamant that I do have Borderline Personality Disorder. - go figure????
Well I kind of worried about the Dx disparity for half a nano second, and decided to speak with lovely new GP, and he's such a sensible fellow, and he talked about there being a 'continum' of symptoms etc.etc.
So that satisfied me, because I know what my symptoms are, and what they are NOT!

TripleThreat33, I do really hope you have or may be able to gain really good medical and psychological support for your Dx's.

Please keep in touch and let us know how you're getting on.
Regards, waratah
