Is anyone actually autistic but was initially misdiagnosed with BPD?

      @Lilithann this is how I feel, though I wouldn’t say “I don’t have BPD”, I’m definitely in what the bpd community likes call “remission”. There’s A LOT of traits that I feel I no longer relate to, some still exist to an extent. I also am trying to understand/learn more about ADHD and how THAT varies from person to person; I see a lot of similarities between those two as well. Quite a few people I questioned might have BPD only to find out they (claim to) have ADHD. So on top of being (pretty sure I’m actually) autistic, I question having ADHD as well. Do you feel like you don’t relate to BPD at all? How’s your experience with being diagnosed & living life?

      Very interested in this; even if it’s a co-morbidity!

      I think that I was Misdiagnosed with having BPD and really think that I am autistic as well. I've done a lot of research and I don't even feel like I have BPD.
