im asking you to maybe give an opinion,i know this person who has ocd type disorder and boderline,,they believe they can morph into a dog or another person,,now i know a little about these conditions,but this certainly doesnt seem to fit,,they also believe they have powers to change events,,and they dont believe this is irrational,,is there some diagnosis that this can fit into

Good morning.

You're asking a questions about diagnosis, and it is inappropriate (and unethical) for a Licensed Mental Health Professional to make a diagnosis (a) over the internet; (b) across the country; and (c) about a third party without having seen him/her.

That being said, and with the understanding that we are not providing a diagnosis, the other feelings/behaviors you describe are delusional in nature. These types of delusions can be related to underlying thought disorders or, in some cases, severe mood disorders (like active, severe Bipolar Disorder with psychotic features). These delusions are not typically seen among individuals who manifest OCD or Borderline Personality Disorder.

I hope that helps.
