Borderline Personality Disorder

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've recently been told that i most likely suffer from bpd.

Now this has been going on years Ave nearly killed me, ruined my life, all the usual. Being given a label isn't exactly helpful. Nor unhelpful.

I was wondering if there are any people there diagnosed with this who wouldn't mind talking, here or on private message.

I don't even know what i want to ask yet. I've found in the past talking to people with similar problems is good especially when they write something and Immediately you nod and go me too.

Is funny cos know I've looked up bpd online it looks like the disease was written from my case notes. Its just such a match.

Anyway feel free to pm me of whatever. Dunt worry, I'm unlikely to go into anything do.

    I was diagnosed in February this year. I was glad of the diagnosis myself as it has made me understand the way I am like I am. That of course doesn't mean that it makes it easier to deal with but when I am being reflective I understand that my rapid mood cycling isn't down to me being a dramatic pain in the wotsit - but a chemical inbalance which stops my brain working properly!

      Thanks for all the replies.

      Is clearly obvious now that i have bpd after reading the symptoms. I think it started when i was a teen with a psychotic episode.

      Now I'm driven to distraction with depression and recovering from addiction. The depression will kill me. I feel i am about 2 weeks away. I've already started to put things in motion and get things ready. I've no friends anyway. And little family.

      I'm a bit annoyed that i got no proper treatment. I have only ever been on one anti depressant, effexor for 5 years and no help at all. I thought that there are loads of one's to try and combinations but my doctor hates drugs and before i had a benzo addiction. I'm only on effexor cos i can't stop taking it

      Finding out i have this is a death sentence. There's no telling when i could go psychotic again and lose my job. Its like a ticking time bomb.

      Anyway that's my opinion if bpd. Just end it.

      Yes thanks for those out pourings. Sorry I've been offline i kinda gave up on this site.

      Since the diagnosis, I've been able to make amends with alot of my family. They now understand that that horrible person for the last few years was an illness

      So that's really good.

      On the negative side my addiction has got worse. And it now threatens my job. I know if i lose my job, i lose my freedom, my home, and then where do i go. Its so frustrating. Especially as i know i did it to myself.

      Company's now don't recognise humans anymore. There are a resources. If your not outputting at 100% even cos of illness you can be dismissed. I mean is different if you break an arm say and can't do work for a few weeks. But if you've depression, Bpd, addiction... They want rid of you.

      I guess I'm talking upper salaries here in big company's.

      That's my main problem and concern now.
