@26aqua Hi there. I think trust your gut. I don’t think anyone can be diagnosed in one meeting, maybe get a few clues, but a definite diagnosis takes time.
You mentioned childhood sexual abuse, and other traumatic experiences. These take time to work through.
I’m pleased you are seeing a psych. Others here have done DBT, and found it really beneficial. @Zoe7 might be helpful in explaining some of it to you.
I’m pleased you have managed to get some of this out. Sometimes it really helps just to write things down.
