This week I have been having a few conversations about why people diagnosed with eupd are NOT ‘manipulative’. Or at least no more manipulative than the next person sat next to them!
Diagnosis doesn’t Define.
Did you know that there are 256 combinations of symptoms that can lead to someone being diagnosed with Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder?
There are 9 different ‘symptoms’ that make up EUPD. To have a diagnosis you have to meet at least 5 of the symptoms. Because we are all individual, even within a diagnosis.
