What is inadequate personality disorder?

Postby senatorcarlyle » Thu May 15, 2008 5:45 am

I was diagnosed with this at one time along with many other things, but I dont know what it is, I cant really find much info on the net about it. Im wondering what the diagnostic criteria of it is and any information about it.

I'm very surprised that your doctor told you nothing about it. I mean, surely he/she at least even directed you to some resources about it? It is where a person apparently struggles with almost everything they try to complete/do in life; and it is as if they are mentally retarded to some extent, but they actually aren't.

Where can i find some resources on it? It was a DSHS doctor who diagnosed me with it a few years ago. I do struggle to do things in life but i thought that was due to other disorders i have. The doctor that diagnosed me with this also diagnosed aspergers, depression, learning disorder, and schizotypal disorder. I get diagnosed with something differant everytime i get an evaluwation but aspergers or another developmental disorder has been consistant since i was 5 and either psychosises or personality disorders have been consistant since i was 19. Wouldnt the IPD be due to the other disorders? If not how do i go about treating it as a seperate disorder? All i could find about it says its diagnosed when there isnt another known disorder, yet the pdoc diagnosed me with other disorders with it as well. Does that mean its a misdiagnosis, and the pdoc didnt know what he was doing!? I go to an aspergers group meeting and they all seem more active and social that me, so i imagine theres something else wrong with me too. The only thing ive ever been functional in is my music and im starting to not be able to do that either lately. I just cant concentrate at all anymore and spend hours a day staring at my computer screen and completly lack motivation. I never saw that doctor again, and my pdoc and councler both didnt know what IPDwas becasue it is not in the dsm.

This is the classical example of what happens when there are simply too many different disorders out there. The result is that you are extremely confused and don't have a clue what is wrong with yourself. That's not your fault though. With all of these disorders, you are bound to be diagnosed differently each time you go to a different doctor.

The IPD - as you said - is probably just a symptom of something else. It sounds like something related to Asperger's Syndrome. I have Asperger's Syndrome and I'm the moderator of the Asperger's forum here. Why don't you take a look at the symptoms of it and see what you think? You can view them here:

yea, i fit just about every one of those. Im sure probablly most of my disorders are related to aspergers. My current pdoc recently told me I have whats called multiplex developmental disorder. Its not in the DSM though. Its an ASD that has symptoms of several various disorders. He says its a hodgepog disorder that will probablly be included in the next DSM.

Hmm, ignoring what your doctors have told you, what do you feel most comfortable with? I'm assuming that it's Asperger's Syndrome. Did you read any of the other posts on that forum? You might find that you relate to many of us there.

I think aspergers fits me better than anything in the current dsm. I think my current pdoc is right about multiplex d.d. though, because i have all the symptoms of aspergers but i also have hallusinations, disacoation, bipoler like mood swings, and it feels like people can control my mind and i get thoughts that arent mine. Unlike someone with schizoaffective though ive had these symptoms all my life. multiplex d.d. is very similar to aspergers but also has psychotic and affective symptoms and it explains all the symptoms of everything ive been diagnosed into one disorder which makes sence that its all related to the same disorder becuase ive always had all the symptoms as long as i can remmber. if you dont know what it is its on wiklepida. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple-c ... l_Disorder thanks for the help.

That's an interesting article on Multiple-complex Developmental Disorder (McDD) but this is exactly what I take issue with: Reading the symptoms for McDD just now, I have found that they all relate to me. I'm not going to bother becoming curious about whether I am McDD or Asperger's (or something else), however, because there are simply too many labels out there. I could just as easily call myself Bipolar too; plus AvPD (Avoidant Personality Disorder), Anxious, Depressed, Schizophrenic, etc.

Do you see my point? I think you are being wrapped-up in all of these labels, and it's not helping you. Sorry, that's just how I'm seeing it. Why not just stick to one thing, and concentrate on that?
