Correlation between SPD & BPD?

by Stina
(CA)

I am 40 years old and was recently told that I have symptoms consistent with SPD. Today happens to be the 10 year anniversary when I was first diagnosed with BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder).


I peer-facilitate a group for women with BPS, when I started talking about the SPD signs and symptoms, EVERYONE could relate. It was like the twisting that our minds do to emotions that results in the Borderline characteristics are somehow related to the different way our brains are actually processing information (the SPD stuff).

Has anyone else come across this relationship between the two disorders?

Asperger's maybe?
by: Anonymous

Because of poor research on women and girls and biases among clinicians, women with austism spectrum disorders (ASD) are often misdiagnosed as borderlines. It might be worth checking out. ASD and SPD are strongly correlated.

Spd & bpd related to hoarding?
by: Anonymous

we believe my MIL to be undiagnosed BPD. My daughter is recently diagnosed SPD. Any connection between BPD, SPD, and hoarding? Could hoarding be a symptom of sensory seeking (extreme, obviously)?

SPD BPD and relationships
by: Anonymous

Hi everyone... I also have a diagnosis of BPD (although depending on the psych it has changed back and forth between Bipolar and BPD). And I have many of the symptoms of SPD. Sound and touch sensitivity are my 2 biggest issues and it has reached a point where I can't bear for my partner to touch me unless the pressure is really firm. I think our relationship will end over this eventually and I'm not really sure what to do to solve the problem but it's good to know I'm not the only one!

I discovered correlation and am hoping scientists will research
by: Anonymous

Hi,
I have had borderline personality for many years. But when I stumbled non Sensory Processing Disorder I was convinced therein lies the root of all of my BP behaviours.

Had I not experienced constant negative incalidation due to my sensory experiences being abnormal, I wouldn't have started self-destructive/self-punishing behaviour.
I am so glad I stumbled on SPD and now tell many others about it.

I hope someone qualified will start researching it!
