Hi, everyone... I'm Snoops and I've been recently diagnosed as having anxiety disorder and borderline personality disorder. I already knew I was probably bipolar so that one didn't startle me - the other two did. So, what the hay... I joined all three groups.

Snoopers, Snoops or Snoopy (snoops was taken in my email), is a nickname I picked up back in the 80s so I thought it might be fun to use it as a handle for anonymity. It suddenly occurs to me that it may sound male... I'm not. Snoops is my preference. lol

Thank you for that, dreams. Even the definitions of bpd that I saw online looked a little ambiguous to me... and an awful lot of the symptoms seemed to be ones that could easily slide into another diagnosis just as easily, but what do we know, right? lol

i am study abnormal psychology and what people forget is you have to have so many of the symptoms and they have to be a certain degree of disruptive to your life
