"Cause in his life he is filled with all these good intentions

He's left a lot of things He'd rather not mention right now"

Is that too much to ask? With a safe home, warm bed, On a quiet little street, All she wants is someone to hold onto."

My biggest dilemma is ANXIETY; Talk therapy/CBT is symptom exacerbating as it perpetuates the thoughts. I still carry demons of the past with me.

I've never heard of it before, and your doctor would probably be the best one to explain it to you. If I had to make a wild guess, I would guess that it might mean something like Personality Disorder NOS. Best thing is to ask your doc though -s/he is the one that wrote it there.

Dx: Complex PTSD
Tx: Lamictal (250) + prazosin (7.5) + "therapy"

i thought amorphus meant withouth shape, but i've never heard of amorphus personality disorder...i think that tyrp is most likley right when said it's likley personality disorder NOS. but, yes, ask your doc about it, he/she is going to be able to give you the most info about it, of course.

I have never heard of such a term, and neither is it in the DSM or ICD. I'd ask whoever gave you the dx.

it sounds somewhat like science fiction
a personality without form or shape which shifts...

i would closely question my psychologist until I understood this
