So, as I've mentioned, I'm experiencing an 'episode' of severe anxiety. I see a therapist, but she's not a psychiatrist, and she's a little reluctant to medicalise my 'issues'. However, I'm really thinking that getting a diagnosis for a mood, anxiety, etc, disorder would be useful to understand and cope with it, and therapist said she would help with that if that's what I want.

Anyone with BPD, GAD, or other mental health disorders that have been officially diagnosed, and how that affects/influences your life? I don't want to just use it as an excuse to get out of work, but at the moment I feel like I might not be able to get through some days, but I don't have any official explanation. Would it make me less likely to be hired?

I don't feel like I can keep doing this by myself, you know?
