Default Re: Could I be bi-polar? :(

Many disorders (like bi-polar and bpd) are tricky to diagnose correctly as everyone exhibits some of the traits to an extent.
I think, however, that diagnosing at our age is a mistake as it could become a self-fulfilling prophecy with people conforming to the labels clinicians have given them. I know that sub-consciously I did for a while.
As long as you get help when you need it and it does actually help you then the label you have doesn't matter at all.
