I believe i was misdiagnosed with BPD 8years ago. I was given treatment by a "student in training" to be a psychiatrist at a hospital. I was chosen to be one of her patients that received free treatment because of the traumatic events i experienced, both past and recent. At age 17 i started to become severely angry without understanding why. I also began making poor choices of activities without thinking about the consequences; such as extreme promiscuity, obbessions, reality escapisms, and drug use.
At 19 years old, i was in a relationship with a man who was severely mentally ill and untreated for it. He was abusive physically, mentally and emotionally. At the same time, I contracted an STD, had a miscarriage, and i started to have shocking flashbacks of being sexually abused by my father throughout my whole childhood. The memories were so vivid and hard to handle, and i had no support from my partner. I started experiencing severe panic attacks with what seemed to be post traumatic episodes. During this time i was physically exercizing to the extreme. Eventually i started having suicidal thoughts from reflecting over my life experiences. My father had attempted suicide twice over his life, so that didn't help me see the cons. Eventually i expressed to my family that i had been planning out suicide options but could not follow through with them. My mother immediately admitted me to the hospital. I was given prozac.
Some family history: My father has Bi-polar disorder, Obbesive Compulsive Disorder and a Multi-Personality Disorder that he is being treated for. My grandmother on my mother's side has Bi-polar disorder as well........
After my "psychiatrist" evaluated me from all of this, she told me that her and her colleagues, determined that i have "Borderline Personality Disorder". And then she said that she will continue to prescribe me with Prozac, because the medication treats all different types of disorders including bi-polar, in case they "over-looked" my diagnosis.
I believe i have suffered from Post Traumatic Disorder and that i may truly have Bi-polar disorder. Because i was diagnosed with BPD, I have not been able to get health coverage because it's a "pre-existing" condition. So i have not had any doctor care in over 6 years, and luckily i can still get my medication from a small town hospital that has compassion for this whole ***n mess.
I want to be given medical attention to determine correctly, what i have. And to be prescribed with alternative medication choices to Prozac. If anyone has any information on anything i've written here, please share! Thank you for hearing my story.....
