    Am I crazy?

    So I've been diagnosed with Bpd and I was on meds for a while but I stopped and I thought I was doing better. I try to be more mindful before I react to negative emotions.

    Helping My Children

    My ex wife has BPD. At least this is my non-professional diagnosis after many years of a confusing marriage. It was the main cause of our marriage failing. I moved out a few years ago and our relationship is much better now. I'm no longer compelled to put up with her moods or try to fix things...

    Worries and I want to know how to deal with this.

    There will be two parts because of an Ex friend dying. First part: my mom did (still may) look down on football players (hi school or pro) bc of bad experiences she had and it’s hard to defend them now with all kinds of stuff they do. She seems to have lessened the stance but I would be...

    I don't know what to do

    So I've been really exhausted lately - I work full time at a daycare, and I haven't taken holidays in quite awhile because I can't afford to take time off.

    DID, Anyone?

    I didn't see DID on the list of forums so the post told me to come here. I know it's quite an uncommon diagnosis, that's why it's been so hard to find someone who can share what the experience of having DID is like so I can help my mom. Mom is undiagnosed, but DID is evident. My sisters and I...
