Is finding a job harder after getting diagnosed? I’ve only been suggested diagnoses by professionals but since Covid happened I was never fully diagnosed with anything. Was prescribed meds too so no doubt when I try again for a diagnosis, I will be prescribed more meds. It’s not like I can hide that from my future employers. I’m just afraid that by getting a diagnosis to put a name to my misery once and for all, I’m harming my chances of getting a job that I desperately need. My state is known for not providing the best protection against discrimination of any kind, so I’m a little afraid it can affect housing too.

      Only if you tell people you have it and there is a HUGE STIGMA towards EUPD/Borderline Personality Disorder/EID. I tried to get a Job with a company I was once top Salesman for and they Stigmatised me and told me not to apply for any Jobs for any Companies in the Group which ruled out many opportunities.
