ok so I think i have DID, ive been diagnosed with BPD but I've heard that systems are misdiagnosed with BPD. I know I have distinctly different personalities that change how I talk, walk, or even different memories. But I don't wanna self diagnose with DID cause of all the kids on tik tok. for reference im 19 and have really huge holes in my memories from growing up and have suffered through trauma since I was like 7. Any systems that can help me out?

      Hi there’s BPD is a form of secondary structural dissociation so the overlap is huge. You can experience long black outs, amnesia from past, disconnect from the self, chronic numb feeling (BPD switching can also as a result feel like System members fronting) and other dissociative and part like symptoms, this isn’t true for everyone with BPD as the criteria is varied but BPD is under the structural dissociative model umbrella so know even if you have BPD your dissociation is real. As bpd is apart of structural dissociation it’s important even if you don’t have tertiary structural dissociation like DID that you find a doctor that’s educated in not just bpd but structural dissociation model x Hope this helps

      I hope you figure it out! As a side note, I would recommend not referring to them as personalities

      hello! our dms are open if needed, would be willing to talk ab this in greater detail there if youd like, for now though id say that you can have both bpd and did, and bpd is quite common in those with did, its also possible that you(s) may have one or the other, looking at symptoms rather than dx can be very helpful in our experience! - marice
