Finally saw the psychological evaluator. I had gone to that walk-in clinic on and off for almost ten years without the diagnosis verbally spoken to me and explain... Until now! I had suspected for a while that I wasn't bipolar but had borderline personality disorder instead. Because years ago I didn't know that's what it was, I always thought I was some kind of subset of bipolar or part of the bipolar spectrum. It wasn't until 4 years ago I decided to look more into bpd to realise it fit me a lot more so having this confirmed felt good but what didn't feel good was that they had the diagnosis in my file FOR YEARS and never told me! Hours before seeing the doctor I had an episode and nearly annihilated my relationship with my bf. But now that he knows what's wrong with me he's starting to understand and support me in getting better by agreeing to coming with me to some of my therapy sessions.
