    Are there more bpd girls that find it extremely hard to talk about sex? Hard to say what you do and don't want? Is that typical for bpd? What makes it so hard? And how to deal with it?

    Hi All, I’m new. This is my first post. I have a long history of recurrent depression and anxiety for my whole adult life (the last 14 years). My most recent ‘episode’ of anxiety and depression led me to speak about symptoms with a new friend who suggested BPD (she has a BPD diagnosis). The...

    Girlfriend's Lies....

    Now everytime me and my girlfriend argue, I've notificed she lies to everyone around her. I'll admit I looked at her messages, a big no-no I know! But knowing how she is I knew I needed to see what she'd been saying about me. So this entire week we'd been arguing, about not spending Christmas...

    what to do? - friend with bpd of 20+ years

    My friend of 20+ years was diagnosed with BPD. We have always been close but our friendship has always been lopsided. I have always felt like there's no space for me in our relationship. It's always about her and I feel like I'm always caught up riding her emotional roller coaster. Not too long...

    Characters you relate to

    Hi guys, As I'm sure you will have all noticed, TV and media often have a really rubbish representation of BPD! However sometimes writers or authors do get it right and I find that I really relate to a certain character with some of my symptoms. So my question is, what fictional characters (in...
