My mom doesn't believe I have BPD

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello everyone.

So I recently discovered BPD and looked it up, after a lot of research it appears that I have it. But when I told my mom she said "I know you and I don't so" and that was that. I want to at least get it checked. How do you think I can get my mom to believe me and set up an appointment?

All advice is welcome!

Thank you,

-Cienna

      So has anyone else ever come forward and questioned your mental health as in teachers, Dr's etc, do you not have any friends.

      My son has DPD and its been obvious since he was young that their was a problem which only got worse as he got older, I'm presuming your under 18

      Well i also have issues with anxiety so I am not super social but my beat friend has noticed and when I talked to her she was like, of yeah you have that i think. But my mom doesn't agree, even though I think I have quiet BPD where you don't have the "typical" symptoms because you turn them in on yourself. And yes, I'm under 18

      I personally can't state whether you have or haven't but as a young person trying to get through the hardest years of your life it can seem pretty daunting, I would show your mum this and maybe she would realise just how worried you are, with my son it was clear to us that he had a problem even though he didn't realise it.

      If you can't speak to your mum maybe you could speak to a teacher.

      It's not unusual to imagine many illnesses when your young and anxiety can increase the notions
