    Is it normal

    I’ve been diagnosed BP since high school- over 16 years ago. I have a wife, 2 kids, and a fairly high stress management job. I function well, but I feel like when I hit a stress point I crack and my whole psyche seems like a spiraling storm cloud of just... sadness and emptiness and...

    One ignorant mother trucker

    Looking at this gem of a blog, and other online commentary like it, it makes me feel "Good, I'm happy you got burned by someone with BPD. You had it coming." Borderline Personality Disorder types use mood as excuse to abuse What an a-hole.

    Mood Swings Getting Out Of Hand

    Its weird. I haven't been having mood swings really in some time. I mean yeah there's the occasional polar shift, but by and large I've really only been having schizophrenia symptoms. I guess that's proof enough that I'm schizoaffective bipolar and not just schizophrenic. I take 50mg of...

    I Need Help with My Voices and Mood Swings

    I have a recurring voice who hates my guts and wants me to literally kill myself. If I'm distracted I'm usually fine, but if I make a mistake she uses that opportunity to put me down to try to make me suicidal. At the same time, I also have mood swings where I'll get extremely depressed for no...

    Borderline - You and your psychiatrist

    I just want to get some BPD folks' views on their psychiatrist. I feel really let down by mine. He seems very dismissive of anything I try and tell him. He's made the odd comment here and there that suggests to me that he thinks I can just 'think' my way out of it, or that if I got 'tougher'...

    Ruining relationships

    Hi, this is my first time posting, so I hope I'm doing it right. I just don't know how to have a stable relationship. Every time there is a period of it being good and happy something happens and I just lose control of my emotions for whatever reasons. And then I just can't not hold a grudge...

    I think my user name says it all

    Hello, I'm very new to this. I spent most of my life pretending I'm OK. But I'm not. Last night I tried to harm myself over something small. I scared my boyfriend half to death. I set up a doctor's appointment. I don't know what's wrong with me. I can turn off my emotions, crazy mood swings, I...

    I have a couple of questions

    I don't know where to start, (beforehand I apologize for my english, it's not my first language) Im a 18 year old, which makes me think I'm probably overreacting as many teens do. In April 2015 I began having EXTREME mood swings, when I say extreme is really extreme. I went from my normal...

    Mood Swings - within minutes

    Long novel here, but I promise I'll get to the point. Basically, ridiculous mood swings within minutes (not hours, weeks, months, or years). I was dx'd with Schizoaffective - depressive type about 6 months ago. Since then I've been on several meds. The best so far was Saphris, until it...
