BPD - Am I extreme?

Hi,

About 12 months ago I was diagnosed with having bipolar II. Just recently my P Dr is questioning whether or not it could be borderline personality disorder.

I just wondered if I am extreme in feeling they way I do sometimes e.g. if my partner even goes out of the room, I feel really uneasy, I like to know exactly what she is doing all of the time! I need a time scale for everything she does. It really distresses both of us and is becoming a real problem. Am I on my own..???
:scared:

hi, i have borderline and am exactly the same as you. my girlfriend is away this weekend and i'm beating myself up that she will come back to me. i'm not a control freak but i have to have plans and schedules to keep me safe. fortunately my girlfriend is very understanding and accepts my illness as part of who i am. i hope your partner is understanding, talking about this sort of thing is a big help.
i have no advice for you, sorry, just thought i'd let you know you are not on your own.

take care,

rich:cool:

Thanks Rich,

I am exactly the same with plans and schedules but I actually do feel like a control freak!

My partner is certainly trying to be more understanding and the more we sit down with the professionals, the easier it gets.

Thank you for taking the time to reply and I hope you're not feeling to bad about your girlfriend being away, try and keep yourself busy...

Claire
