What?? OK, I can maybe see reading depression into the flat affect discussion. But where are you seeing a mania cycle in all this? What are you basing this on?

She seems to have significant up-cycles where she can achieve a lot and then suddenly she's an unemployed, yet qualified MD who seems to still be happy.

I don't know this woman, obviously, and I did say I wasn't trying to diagnose anything. But I've known three people very well who were diagnosed with BPD after they qualified, two as doctors, one as a lawyer/barrister. It sounded familiar.

OP, you sound like you're in love with her or something.

Since this seems to be more about a specific person, it'll probably work better in MPSIMS. Moving.

That would be fairly messed up. What makes you think that?
