Does having been diagnosed with personality disorder nos mean you may not have all of the symptoms of a specified personality disorder?

It likely means you have a mood disorder but it show no signs of bipolar or Border Line Personality Disorder.  You are always urged to get a second opinion on a diagnosis.  If you are not bipolar or BPD it is good and you still need medicines and treatment is the symptoms get worse.  If you do research you will find that any mood disorder if untreated can worsen.  Good Luck and stay positive.  A diagnosis is just that.  It is not a label or a projection of who you are.
