Hi my name is Kimberley. I am 36 yrs old. About 5-6 yrs ago I went through a lot of mental problems. I was even hospitalized for it. I was told it was Bipolar. Then I was told that it was Borderline Personality Disorder with Bipolar tendencies. Well I have been without any meds for either of these for almost 2 yrs now. I am living in a new town & go to a medical clinic here for my health issues. I discussed these things with her and she sent me to a mental health clinic to be properly tested & evaluated since they had never done this before. She wanted to make sure what was going on before putting me on meds. Which I am glad for more than one reason. Today I got my results back. I do not have either of those. I have been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder(Recurrent,Moderate) & with Personality Disorder (Not Otherwise Specified,Borderline Features). Now I have found a wealth of info in the MDD but I can not come up with anything on the PD other than Bipolar and BPD. I have not yet gotten into my med doctor to see where I go from here. But I do have an appt. set up with a counselor this next Wed. To me the test was very accurate in its assesment of my personality & me. I actually was crying they asked why but I could not explain how or why I was feeling the way I was feeling at the time. I like the lady that I am going to be seeing for the counceling which helps. She seems to really want to help me. Which is a big plus when they actually care. Well I am long winded. So I will close saying I am looking forward to getting to know you all and learning what I can.
