Recently was diagnosed with BPD and I feel so confused about how this effects my identity or if it should even effect it at all.
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
I have BPD as well, I don't really let it effect my identity, I only acknowledged the diagnosis and that is a part of who I am.
yeah I just have problems with my identity and having no clue who I am all the time
I sit down with myself and look at things I would like to be like or people I'd like to emulate and write down HOW I can be more like them in my way. Then if I Do and CAN do it regularly I learn more of who I am. Do I flounder still? Yes. But it has helped me a lot when I start to freak out about identity and realize I have a set personality shining enough that I can be just ME.
yeah idk I just used to be such an outgoing, friendly, confident person when I was younger and I feel like I can never me that again
My diagnosis doesn't effect my identity, my disability that comes from it does perhaps.
One of the criteria of BPD is lack of identity so struggling with your identity can be due to it. I am always changing my interests and I don't know what gender I am, can't seem to figure it out
