Today has been quite a day.
I had my meds appointment and we spent quite a long time talking about the meds I’m on, and their doses. Two of them went up. Mostly because we are questioning if I’m getting the full benefit. Then we added one, to help treat other symptoms.
I think we have the ingredients of my meds cocktail figured out. Now we just have to fine tune it. How much and how often, basically.
We spent awhile talking about my paranoia, dissociative disorder and depersonalization disorder. The paranoia will be helped by the increase in the anti-psychotic. The other two will just have to be dealt with. I’m only borderline in them.
Imagine that, I’m borderline in something. LOL So many people spend so much energy fighting the name borderline personality disorder. It simply doesn’t make sense. I’m borderline a rough dozen other illnesses, but I don’t actually have any of them. So I’m borderline with the diagnosis borderline personality disorder. Borderline in all the personality disorders, borderline personality disorder… It makes perfect sense to me where the name comes from. I think less energy should be spent on fighting the name and more energy finding a cure and treating those who need help. Hmmm, seems like common sense to me. Then again, common sense isn’t common.
I dunno. I’m not trying to offend anyone. Lord knows I’ve said more offensive things in my life. I’m sure there are plenty of good reasons that the name should be changed. I just happen to believe the name should be left alone.
If you want to argue with me, feel free. that’s what the comment area if for.
