Default Are mental disorders such as Borderline Personality real?

I have been diagnosed by several doctors over the past 10 years with Borderline Personality and Bipolar Depression but the outside world seems to think these disorders are not real and just "attention seeking".

However, after several run-ins with the law, the destruction I have caused within my family, abuse history, multiple job losses, not completing an education, uncontrollable mood swings, horrible thoughts, assumptions, and flashbacks I am literally a textbook case of Borderline Personality after reading it again in the DSM. Like there is no way medical doctors, psychologists, and psychiatrists are wrong if they have seen my pattern of behavior over 10 years?

I have been refusing treatment for a long time, but starting on that path now because even the outside world keeps telling me otherwise, every single year my behavior just repeats itself.

Is there anyone on here that can relate or shed some light that there is hope?

I am looking at the person I used to be and miss them. Funny, smart, talented. It's all gone.
