GP telling you this sid?

So a GP is not the person who can diagnose a personality disorder, any personality disorder! Unless they also happen to have a degree in counseling, a masters or doctorate in psychology, or be a psychiatrist on the side.

No one but someone qualified, ie someone credentialed in counseling, or a psychiatrist, should attempt to diagnose something so tricky.

What I'm wondering is if you are maybe a little argumentative or did something that pissed them off (like not following med instructions etc or calling with a silly question), that you don't have a lot of close relationships, that you got fed up with group therapy. (I would have too under those circumstances). They want to explain it somehow.

Don't get therapy for BPD if it hasn't been correctly diagnosed.

I can't answer if you sound like someone with BPD from your message.... no idea.

It does sound like you're concerned about it though, so maybe see a real psychologist and get evaluated. Then if it turns out you really are, you could ask around and see if this BPD group is well recommended or not.

Your doc sounds a little kooky.
