i discovered my borderline tendencies through my own research and i was actually the first one to call myself "borderline"...the books helped, and now that i'm in the process of mending my ways (who says borderlines are difficult to treat?!) i no longer consider myself such.

no, southwest texas...

the borderline label hurt, the histrionic one made me laugh, and the BP II--well i now i have firstahnd knowledge that it's the meds, not the dx. which i had read many times before but could not fully understand.

having read up on all of my diagnoses has helped change my behavior, though.
