Is there a term for this? I'm diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder depressive type and GAD. I'm wanting to get ptsd added as well. I know with my past childhood trauma I wasn't able to develop a healthy sense of self.
I am not a mental health professional and cannot diagnose, but here is a good source of information on people of your personality type: Type Four — The Enneagram Institute. This is my type as well, and you might find some useful information.

The GAD was changed to PTSD (of which Cptsd fits me most). I've started thereapy and we will dig more into recovery from my Cptsd symptoms. Thanks everyone for your replies.

If you have C-PTSD, you might want to check about Identity Disturbance

Borderline Disorder is what I think you are looking for.
