"Just because you didn’t ‘fight back’ doesn’t mean that it wasn’t assault."
Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.
Disclaimer: I sometimes have a hard time advocating self-diagnosis of mental illness simply because I’ve incorrectly self-diagnosed and it was pretty harmful for me so if that sounds cautious that’s where I’m coming from.
But I also know there are many many valid reasons to self-diagnose and that other folks are often correct and have been able to find community and support through self-diagnosis. So I think if you’re in a place where you can’t get an official diagnosis of a mental illness, yes, it’s valid to self-diagnose.
But I will also say that BPD is often confused with other mental illnesses and others and vice versa. Just like with official diagnoses from health professionals, self diagnoses can be wrong. And that’s ok, and I don’t say it to invalidate your mental illness, just to say in your lifetime you may want to be open to your condition being different than you’ve once thought. Diagnosis is tricky, especially when it comes to conditions like BPD that share symptoms with other conditions.
And while I understand you’re saying you don’t want to seek help, I will also say that BPD (like all mental illness) is challenging to deal with on your own. And I’d encourage you to seek SOME kind of help- whatever that looks like for you, whether it’s a parent or a friend or a school counselor or an online support group or an occasional call to a mental health phoneline, etc.. Help doesn’t have to be official. It doesn’t have to involve a doctor. Help can just be a shoulder to lean on or a list of resources from a website.
