my current diagnosis is bpd, ocd, social anxiety, afrid.. but over the past few months my sensory issues have been getting worse… I’ve been researching ASD and it’s resonating a lot, has anyone had similar symptoms to ASD but had a BPD diagnosis?? I’m scared to bring it up to my DBT therapist :/

      I have many friends with BPD who also have autism. It may just be one of those comorbid things and since it's flaring up more now you're noticing it a lot more. Its definitely worth researching as well as analyzing yourself the symptoms you have of BPD + the symptoms you see of autism and see if there's overlaps or comorbidities. I've had autism brought up to me before and found that there were too many overlaps better explained by NPD. An example I can think of is relations to empathy - both people with Cluster B disorders & people with autism tend to have either very high or very low empathy. I relate to low empathy autistic people but for very different reasons. So I'd say to map out your autism & BPD symptoms that you resonate with and see if it was maybe a misdiagnosis that overlapped or they both have traits that exist in you and it's a comorbidity

        @sillyashell ugh it’s so hard! I feel like NPD and BPD are kinda similar so it’s interesting that we both relate to ASD somewhat. The main thing that keeps coming up for me is mostly sensory and social symptoms. The social can definitely come from BPD and I guess the sensory issues could also stem from that. I’m gonna make a list and maybe discuss with my therapist when I see her this week.

One user shared their experience of being diagnosed with BPD and later realizing they might have been misdiagnosed, as their therapist discovered they actually had ADHD and autism. It's not uncommon for some symptoms to overlap between different disorders, so discussing your concerns with your therapist is important for proper diagnosis and treatment.
