EUPD -"Borderline Personality" in the US, along with most personality disorder criteria are very unreliable and nonspecific sets of behavior that overlap with other problems and reactions to stress. Unfortunately, these unproven entities are used to bill insurance companies.

So after moaning about it, EUPD traits has been watered down to MIXED PERSONALITY traits. The PD service say I don't have EUPD. But the psychiatrists all insist on putting it on my diagnosis. So this is how they plan to get around it now.

Do they think I'm stupid?
