> Well, that's what my psychoanayst said a few months ago. She hesitated to dx me "borderline" because that label is often reserved for patients that the docs just can't get along with or understand.

She's right, it is.

Are you in the Boston area?

> i don't necessarily agree with his hasty diagnoses; by our second meeting he'd given me 3 pretty extreme ones (and i'm a pretty mellow, soft-spoken, polite person). you think something's amiss?

I think that diagnoses are just labels, and it sounds like your pdoc knows this. So you don't need to take a psychiatric diagnosis too seriously (and doing so might really be harmful to your self-esteem, so I'd advise against it!).
