I have done posts before about diagnosis and how this can be difficult.
This post is a bit more narrow as it will deal with one disorder.
Tis a newer one in the grand scope of things, of course I am talking of BPD, Borderline Personality Disorder.
So is it hard to diagnose? Yes and no.
Is it misdiagnosed often? Unfortunately this is often the case.
Why? ahhh, now this is the question. There are answers too.
To clarify the title, I am not saying that a diagnosis is a label. In this case though, it often is.This is the stigma associated with this diagnosis. This is something we must strive to remove from our thinking.
