If you think you may have a personality disorder, it may help you to talk to a therapist. Here's a selection of the verified and qualified therapists on PlusGuidance who can help you identify and work with you to overcome this. Most of them offer consultations.

Stress exacerbates symptoms
The severity of symptoms vary between people from mild to severe. A person who only has mild PD symptoms may only need help during very stressful times in life. A person with moderate or severe symptoms may need ongoing support.

It's common for symptoms to start during adolescence and continue into adulthood, and many sufferers have experienced abuse and neglect in childhood
