Do I have a mental issue?
Rage, rapidly changing and overly intense emotions, trust problems, occasional panic attacks, frequent boredom and emptiness, non-suicidal behavior (harm, but no intention of killing myself and no thoughts of suicide), coldness toward others, difficulty maintaining friendships, valuing and devaluing people constantly, and sometimes people say I do things based on impulse. My friend told me it was probably BPD.
I'm worried about going to a psychiatrist because last time they just gave me a depression screening and didn't really listen to what I had said about not wanting to die or anything like that...They also tried to make me go to a bunch of therapists and counselors, but I'm not good at talking things out.
They also overwhelm me, and I've had several panic attacks in their offices. At the moment, this is my only hope since I've tried many therapists, counselors, and doctors, but they all ask the same questions and I'm beginning to think I should try to figure it out myself.
