    Sending out an SOS

    Hi there I’m new on this page and I thought it would hopefully (fingers crossed) help me with these reoccurring issues. I am both borderline PD and bipolar diagnosed. Therefore meaning I have both an issue with my personality AND my mood. Regardless.. My largest issue I’m focusing on right now...

    I discovered my old Dr believed I have BPD. She didn’t intend on telling me this part of my diagnosis. While having an allergic reaction to one of my psych meds, my Dr handed me some paperwork for the ER doctors. It was an urgent situation, due to the rash which was spreading rapidly...

    Hello everyone. I hope you are doing fine today. I was diagnosed BPD a couple of months ago, after going back and forth with anxiety, depression, obsessive and self harming tendencies... Once I got diagnosed, and excited to start with a new treatment, I finally felt a bit more calm. At least I...

    My teacher was my FP. How do I move on?

    I had a teacher in high school who I got attached to. She allowed me to be in her class all 4 years. I've literally never even had a friendship last that long. No one in my life has ever acted as caring as she was toward me, and so I started seeing her as a mother figure. I frequently feared...

    Music that reminds you of BPD?

    Hey all, this might be a bit of a weird thread to start, but I'm curious. To those who also have borderline personality disorder: are there any songs that remind you of BPD? E.g. the lyrics somewhat reflect your experience with the illness. I'll start with one: 'A Guy Like You' by Lisa Germano...

    Experiences with lithium and BPD?

    Hey all! I've recently been diagnosed with BPD and have also just been prescribed lithium as a mood stabiliser. Does anyone have any experience with borderline personality disorder and taking lithium for it?

    Just diagnosed and getting used to it

    Hey everyone. I was formally diagnosed with BPD just this week, and I'm trying to wrap my head around it. At first, I was sure it couldn't be right, but... looking into it more and talking to my closest friends and boyfriend about it, everything's starting to make sense. It's so confusing...

    BPD Partner doesn't love me anymore

    I've been in a relationship with my BPD fiancee for 7 years now and yesterday she told me that she does not love me anymore. She said she felt this way for several months and that she still cares about me a lot. I am also sure she has feelings for another man she just met at work, which she...

    My experience with BPD relationships

    Hey everyone! I’ve been having a tough time lately and I really don’t have anyone to talk to about this. I need a place to vent. This will be long and would probably be better saved for a therapist but money is tight and Internet forums are free so 😉 This is not meant to offend anyone and I hope...

    A point of madness in a viscous cycle-BPD

    If you suffer with all the pain and confusion of borderline personality disorder then hopefully you can relate to this.. I spent 5 and a half years undiagnosed and only in the past 6 months after a completely useless stay in a psychiatric ward, was I finally given a diagnosis that fit! Now the...
