hi, I'm diagnosed as ASPD, does anyone here have any experience with this disorder or know of any resources for me?

Private Message Me.

I think that discussion about this PD that is constructive is not possible on the main boards.

its ok. I've pretty much given up finding any kind of resources at this point. they daignosed me add and aspd, and since then I haven't found anyplace that has any kind of help.

I don't have insurance so I'm not on any medication.

if its not an appropriate place for me to seek support, I won't.

I don't think that's what mspen meant. You have found a safe place to seek support, it's just the private forums might be a better place for you to get the support you need. Please send an PM to mspen.

I think I'm just feeling discouraged. I will send a pm.

You have found a safe place here and ADDrus was right that I wanted to PM you for a good reason.

There are a lot of unnecessary perceptions about ASPD and I wanted to help you in an understanding empathetic way that others, based on perceptions that are valid, yet not applicable to everyone would most likely express.

thanks for the pm! I do know the perceptions people have of me because of this diagnosis. some are not incorrect. but I am human and I really want to find ways to make my life better and safer and to interact with folks who are maybe farther along than I am.

thanks again both of you!

Reesah, I have also been diagnosed with ASPD. Feel free to contact me as I am also looking for others to speak with.

So why can ASPD not be discussed in the public forum anyway? I think it would be appropriate for it to be discussed here and seen for what it is, rather than for the misconceptions that most people believe.

Nearly every message board I have come across that has a section for ASPD labels us as monsters - which is not true.

Some of us can control our actions.

I wanted to add a thank you to QueensU_girl, I know you are just trying to help.
