Question Personality Disorder "not otherwise specified"

I guess this is my main diagnosis for now. My side diagnosis is panic disorder. However, there is very little information out there about ICD-10 F60.9. Has anyone here ever encountered it?

I've never heard of that one. I've only heard of anxiety and mood disorder, not otherwise specified. Sorry, I can't provide much information or experience. I'm diagnosed with BPD. Did your T or psych give you details on why they didn't select a specific PD? Maybe they will give you more specific diagnosis once they get to know you better if it's a new provider.

T is new, so he might change his mind. Diagnosing me is something he has to do for the insurance provider. He did talk about cluster A (specifically schizoid) a bit. We didn't have much time to discuss his diagnosis in much detail, I just asked what he was going to tell the insurer about 2 minutes towards the end of our session.

Ah okay, it sounds like he will give you a more defined diagnosis once you have more sessions.

PD NOS is a vague label that is frequently slapped on a patient who *dares* to disagree with the provider. i.e., the provider wants to have all the power by demeaning the patient, so the patient is labeled as having a personality disorder...except that the provider can't truly fit their patient into a real category. I would be wary of a mental health provider who diagnosed me with PD NOS.

It was just an initial label, as he needed one for the insurance provider. It's schizoid pd now
I don't mind the lable of having a pd, it doesn't change or define who I am.

No, not at all. My concern is treatment. If the diagnosis is wrong the treatment will be wrong, too.


I had a pdoc who diagnosed me with PD NOS. She was a horrible, mean woman who was angry at me because I disagreed with her suggestion for a medication. She immediately wrote "PD NOS." Fortunately, I followed my instinct and found a new med provider. He's kind and understanding, works with me, not at me. He's dx'ed bipolar disorder and CPTSD, which has been my standard dx.

She does sound horrible. Good that you left her. There was a longer process with my T. Also, he still prefers saying that I have a PD with strong schizoid traits. He simply doesn't buy into the idea that one disorder is totally distinct from another (rather, everything is on a continuum). He certainly works with me and wants me to take an active part in leading the sessions (more active than I would want to, tbh).

I'm perfectly comfortable with the lable SPD. I think it suits me pretty well, though there were phases in my life when I had lot's of contacts and didn't crumble. T knows this and asks me about these periods. I think he questions his diagnosis more than I do, constantly reassessing.
