99% sure I have it. They say that it can be caused by issues with people around you, and I guess that also can mean bullying, because the behaviors associated with it didn't start until 4th grade, when I was a victim of severe bullying.
I didn't actually know this was a disorder now. I knew about how people can have these tendencies, but didn't realise it had been named a disorder. Doctors like having names for things. And I can understand that it helps them identify them and understand them a bit better, but it doesn't necessarily help you. Not sure on what your stand on this is, but being put into a box can hinder people, rather than help them.
I'm more interested in learning how this affects you, rather than what the criteria are.
The behaviors associated with it are relying on others to tell you what to do but then getting mad at them when they tell you what to do, uncooperativeness, and really serious mood swings. It doesn't usually cause me so much trouble that it interferres with daily life, but sometimes it can be annoying (to others and myself).
My dad has it, but he won't admit it, see my post Worst Christmas/Depressed under chats
