Yesterday my therapist filled out disability papers.
Under Axis II she wrote 301.82. Surely this had to be a mistake as 301.82 is Avoidant Personality Disorder and I've always been disagnosed with 301.83 which is Borderline Personality Disorder.
I've never thought of myself as an avoidant, but now looking at the diagnostic criteria online, it fits me perfectly. More than the borderline diagnosis.
So is there really such a thing as "Avoidant Borderline Mixed Personality?" I saw it mentioned online somewhere.
