Wow ... take it from a professional...go to a psychologist to get diagnosed and take a real assessment (i.e., the MMPI).

There are no meds for the core of personality disorders, but there are meds for the symptoms (sometimes). Borderline Personality Disorder has an empirically-supported treatment - DBT.

Individuals with a bona fide personality disorder often have more than one, most often within the same cluster.

Some professionals won't diagnose a personality disorder because of the stigma, but there do exist and must be managed.

Good Luck!!!
