Why dx'd BPD by new pdoc?Every1 who knows me(7 yr bf,all friends new&old)is baffled.Im PTSD&Bipolar&USED to self-harm,but many yrs ago.No1 agrees BPD.

Ask the: provider who made the diagnosis which criteria were met. Is "pdoc" used as an abbreviation for psychiatrist or primary care physician? It would be best if the diagnosis was made by a psychiatrist or psychologist who has done a careful assessment using DSM criteria. ...Read more

Please suggest a positive (work?)book to help: born w/adhd, years of physical/emotion/sexual abuse by parent, now has c ptsd, bipolar 2, & borderline.

Please suggest a positive (work?)book to help: born w/adhd, years of physical/emotion/sexual abuse by parent, now has c ptsd, bipolar 2, & borderline.

Possibility: This sounds like an extremely complex situation that would benefit more from working individually with an experienced psychologist or psychiatrist. However, the mind-body workbook for ptsd by block(s) may be a nice accompaniment to your own more individualized therapy. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Aspergers signs? Son 7 was tested for dyslexia at scottish rite and research has lead me to aspergers. Repetative behaviors, rigid thinking, few frien

To find out if it is: You & his teacher can fill out the australian scale for aspergers in children for your pediatrician ( see tony attwood & o.A.S.I.S.Org, ) but it's not specific for asperger's. He needs evaluations by a neuropsychologist, developmental/behavioral pediatrician, et al in a specialty clinic to diagnose an autistic disorder. They'll need all reports from doctors, schools, slt & extensive history. ...Read more

My friend mmt(methadone) dr(not psychiatrist)rx him citalopram&s-valporate for uni-p mdd, its good rx?My psych advices bupropion on phone.Best regards.

My friend mmt(methadone) dr(not psychiatrist)rx him citalopram&s-valporate for uni-p mdd, its good rx?My psych advices bupropion on phone.Best regards.

Interesting issues: If you feel your friend needs to see an actual psychiatrist, you can encourage him or her to do so. If by "psych" you mean psychiatrist, you're putting him/her in an awkward position by asking for some kind of second-guessing on a patient s/he hasn't seen. If the "psych" (could also mean psychologist) suggests med changes anyway, it's ill-informed. His/her comments could also be misinterpreted. ...Read more

Is my bf schizophrenic?+paranoia, mood swings, says hurtful things, no social regard and megalomaniac

Your boyfriend: Needs a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation to determine the nature of his difficulties. What you're describing actually sounds more like bipolar or schizoaffective disorder than schizophrenia. He could also be abusing drugs. If he's mistreating you and unwilling to seek psychiatric help, you might reconsider your relationship with him. Stay safe! ...Read more

Why has stanton e samenow phd psychologist received so much criticism?

Why has stanton e samenow phd psychologist received so much criticism?

Expert witnesses: I had not heard of DR. Samenow until I read your question last night & decided to read up on him. I still don't know that I have a good handle on the answer. But I can say that often behavioral health providers who act as expert witnesses whether it be for the defense or the prosecution, can become known for stance on issues like capacity/ lack of capacity etc. When the behavioral health provider- ...Read more
