A new diagnoises

I mentioned a few days ago that my phsycologist had changed. It frustrates me but this is what happens.

I got the letter of my progress. Normally this is sent just to the GP but I request that I get a copy, mainly so I can giggle at it.

This time I looked disheveled, nop that is just my normal look.

However she did say I have signs of anankastic personality disorder.

Just to recap I have been diagnoised with rapid cycling bipolar (after a fight) social anxiety, agrophobia and OCD traits.

What is anankastic personality disorder I hear you all yell. Its OCD, I think its a new name, to get people away from the idea of OCD is all about cleaning.

I also got informed I have general anxiety disorder rather than social, I have no idea what this means.

Infact I have no idea what any of it means, downside of getting a letter meant for someone who spent 7 years studying medicine rather than the 5 minute search on google

  2. Whoa this is intense. I’m not really sure what to make of it. I hope you’re not as confused as I am.

    And so the impenetrable wall of understanding is once again present… Just keep yourself right. Only YOU have any true understanding of how YOUR head works. Use the diagnosis as a foundation to which you build yourself upon. Half of a diagnosis is honestly done by yourself, you become an expert on your own head. Write everything down, and teach them that… Unfortunately sometimes you have to educate the specialists. Keep going.

        If you have a smart phone there is this app called “Optimism” it has an orange icon. And no its not a self help guide to all things improbable. You score your day, your triggers, your mood, your activities and it puts it all into a chart. Pie chart, graph, line chart. It may be useful to help hold your shrinks hand. Academics respond well to logic (I am one). If you cant think of what to say or how to say it, there will be a simple correlation of how you go through your days and they can be more specific in targeting an issue. Just a thought. Or do what I do, wait until your manic and write a 10,000 guide to how your mind works and how to correctly treat you as an individual. Shrinks do not react well to that…

    Oh Boy! All those diagnosis are another way of saying, ‘they don’t know!’. They are trying, but they don’t know! Best for you to make the final diagnosis. Sometimes it can be comforting to have a label, then you know. And you can go from there. Other times it becomes a negative, the label and all that is attached to it. Wishing you what ever you need to keep your life as you need it to be. 🙂

  7. I am not sure the diagnosis matters. The most important thing is that you get the care you need to heal.🌈
