self-diagnose.
when a person identifies themselves with a disorder (usually a mental or eating disorder).

please seek a professional opinion if you self-diagnose & strongly believe you have the mental illness you self-diagnosed. your self-diagnosis could be correct but you risk causing yourself further mental or emotional harm if you incorrectly diagnose yourself.
person one: i have borderline personality disorder
person two: really? when did you find out?
person one: a few days ago, i self-dx
person two: you should see a professional to make sure you're right. if you're wrong, you'll be treating the wrong problem & might make it worse instead of better!
person one: i'm pretty sure i'm right, but i guess i should make sure!
