    Who is that girl?

    I have struggled with mental health problems for as long as I can remember. My mom had her own set of illnesses mentally and physically to the point of where it became very toxic. She didn't mean it at all. She would never mean to hurt anybody. But she struggled with herself to a point of where...

    I was denied DBT because I use drugs.

    I waited 1.5 years for that initial appointment, 3 months for the next, only to be told I wouldn't be getting DBT because I admit to using drugs. Drugs, like self harming, are a way of me coping with my symptoms. How am I supposed to stop if I'm not even allowed therapy to give me other tools...

    Hey, I have BPD, and it's getting tough lately. I decided to be more social and had a couple of dates over past few weeks. There is a guy I really like, we met 3 times but I cannot stop thinking about him and getting obsessed. He was super sweet and nice these weeks, saying he liked me, but...

    My therapist is ill

    Hi, Has anyone else experienced their therapist suddenly ending sessions "with immediate effect" because they have medical problems and "need treatment"? I have been seeing this guy for 2.5 years, twice a week for the last 1.5 years. I have BPD and so struggle like crazy with a love-hate...

    Contact or no contact with ex BPD girlfriend?

    Hi All I broke up with my girlfriend in June, not because I don't love her, but because the relationship was destroying us both. The first 5 months was ok, we had occasional problems, but the second 5 months got progressively worse, she had frequent crisis and the stress of seeing her self-harm...

    Identity Disturbance

    I'm highly interested in this area of BPD because it seems to be my most prevalent symptom. I have absolutely 0 sense of who I am at all times. It never goes away. I'm newly diagnosed and have yet to begin therapy, so I'm inquiring about others' experiences with development in this department...

    Making/Keeping Friends...

    So does anyone else find that being a sufferer of BPD that it’s really hard to maintain friendships? I mean, I don’t know if it’s because of the paranoia in the sense of you always feel like such hard work or a burden and therefore must be difficult to be around and be friends with and because...

    Medication...

    So I’m a bit new to all this and somewhat nervous about it all haha. But how many people are medicated for their BPD, how long did it take you to find the right medication for you and what is that you take please? I feel the older I’m getting, the more likely it is that I can’t be medicated...

    Drawn to narcissists/people who make it worse

    Hi I'm new here! I struggle with BPD and was just wondering if anyone else finds that they are particularly drawn to/create relationships with other people who have narcissistic PD or who are sociopaths? If so was wondering what you think the reasons might be? Furthermore do you find that there...

    The pain of being love starved

    It is my understanding that a lot of the anguish folks with psychological issues are forced to endure often comes from the place in their heart that their parents failed to continually fill with the unconditional love every child deserves and needs, so it remains a gnawing (black?) hole. This...

    I'm stuck in a rut

    Hi, new here, this is my first post. So I've been diagnosed with BPD since I had a major depressive episode during December and my mood swings were out of control. Before being diagnosed I was dropping in and out of college courses, doing the usual stupid, self destructive shit I always do...

    Confused, lost, overwhelmed... Who knows but you really just want to cry!

    So almost 2 years ago I had a counselor suggest I had BPD... Without much of a thought I dismissed her. Over the past year I have struggled with myself, my identity and most of all with my relationships. I feel so disconected and unable to put into word how hopeless and stuck I feel. Was I...
