Question Borderline Personality Disorder

Is it possible to have both BPD and suffer from depression or are the symptoms so similar that I have confused myself??
Also, it would be great if people could post their own experiences of BPD, because the feelings can be very different to a checklist of symptoms.
Tell me everything you know, I'm really wondering if I have BPD.
Thanks xx

BPD Mimics a lot of different disorders. Best bet is to go get some type of assessment. I was diagnosed years ago with clinical depression. Now I'm starting to strongly believe it is probably BPD. It was brought to my attention through an observation of a close friend, Ill be going for an assessment soon. Good luck on figuring shit out! :)

Hey, Doctordoctor! You can have clinical depression while having BPD, but I'm not sure about having Major Depressive Disorder while having BPD.
