Anxiety?

Hi everyone

I have EUPD/BPD and am really suffering at the moment with anxiety and agitation which is stopping me from doing much at all. I'm supposed to be working part-time and at uni the rest of the time but I'm losing that all at the moment due to the fact that I'm getting more and more anxious and can't get out of the house.

Just wondered how many of you suffer with this? Is it a BPD thing or is it that I've got anxiety as well as BPD?

Hi Abi,

I can only speak from my experience and am not qualified to advise however I struggled with generalised anxiety and it was extremly dibilitating. I believe a lot of mental health problems can go hand in hand, but there will be support and or medical interventions your can use for your anxiety. Talk to your GP or care coordinator if yo have one ;)

Take care
Witts x

Like Witts said it can go hand in hand with all mental health problems, but i too suffer from anxiety problems, and i believe that it is associated with bpd. I too have been diagnosed with emotionally unstable personality disorder. So you are not alone with this at all.

If you have a psychiatrist i would let them know or your gp that your anxiety is getting worse. Are you on any medication?

Hi, I'm on Mirtazipine 45mg and Flupentixol 3mg. Saw my GP but he couldn't do anything, phoned my pdoc and he suggested taking the Flupentixol at breakfast rather than dinner which semi-worked for one day and then bang it's straight back to horrendous anxiety.

Pdoc thinks it's just part of the BPD but it's unbearable - I just spend as much of the day in bed trying to sleep to just get away from it all and try and prevent my self from sh. Arghh it's a nightmare that's ruining my life at the moment!
