I was hinting at secrets when I last wrote a blog entry earlier. I couldn’t officially come out in that post because I was telling those I knew first. I’ve known that I was BPD for at least five years now. That was the assessment that I walked out at the time when the woman assessing me was rather awful to me. She still put it on my records because it was her conclusion of the assessment. I was initially diagnosed with autism as a teenager but I feel that I should be open about all my labels. I encourage others to be open but I’ve kept this side of me hidden. BPD is misunderstood more than autism and I want to change that by announcing this part of me. I have to officially announce it before I can post content saying how I experience life… if I don’t it’s going to confuse readers thinking I’m talking about my autism diagnosis. I class myself as dual diagnosed because I can see myself in both autism and BPD.
