Maybe but see psych.: Possibly, but it is potentially dangerous to try to self-diagnose a psychiatric disorder. Given your young age, i would see a psychiatrist to try to get a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Eval: Dear jaguar, i would never try to diagnose a personality disorder on-line. Frankly, that wouldn't be fair to you, because without a comprehensive evaluation, the assessment could be way off the mark. It sounds like you are struggling- recommend seeing a good psychologist and psychiatrist. If the issues are readily apparent, they can consider doing psychological testing. Take care.
