(sorry in advance for all the misspellindgs)I'm not a pro but I do see well meaning family and friends make some misstakes here. I know that you want to get your loved ones help but unless your a doctor you can't say a person suffers from a dissorder. All dissorders have to meet a certian nubmer of criera to be diagnosed with them. I'm a borderline and as one I have to meet 5 out of 9 critera to be one. Some of my syomptions cross over into other personilty dissorders but I don't meet the critera to have them. Also there are many sites that are written by people who think they know about mental illness but are not doctors or don;t suffer from them do there is pleanty of damagening info out there that can hinder your loved ones by reading them. Wikipedia is nortorious for this. I've read things that are so wrong about my dissorder there that if I was not so well informed on it that would damage my treatment and recovery. I know all of you people mean well but if you think your loved ones have something talk to a doctor ang get their opion on it then talk to your loved one on getting help. The thing is that some personility dissorders and clinical mental illness (like bi-polr, post trumitic, and depperssion to name a few) mimic each other and the wrong infi can delay the right treatment. Also people can suffer a clinical illness and personility dissorder at the same time( I' also bi-polar) so the right treatment is crutial. I'm not a doctor myself but a person who sufferes and was not told by people that I suffred from a personilty dissoredr because they thought someone else told me. There was so many things in my life that could of been avoided and worked on earlier if I was told of the dissorder soner. So please do your loved ones good get them to someone who can diagnose them and get them the help thet need. When they get diagnosed you can always come back here to get support for them and you since this is a most helpful place. I relise that I can get flamed for this But I meen well for everybody who comes here looking for help and advice. Flame sute on ponygirl.
