Hi, I have been diagnosed with BPD four years ago now, having had the symptoms since I was around 11, maybe earlier. I am now 36. I am not on any meds but have been on them a few times since 1997. Mainly prozac and citalopram and only for very short periods at a time. I am not feeling great right now and having read a few things on the forum am unsure whether to go back on meds as am scared I wont get off them again. I do feel that my symptoms are getting worse with each passing year and I am struggling to hold down my job sometimes. I work full time but its a struggle. I work for the NHS so its been kind of hard to lie about my illness but I have somehow managed to keep it pretty quiet. What I am asking is, does this just continually get worse or can I be treated and keep it under control? I have no issues taking medication but do not want to lose my driving license because of medication and MH issues. Duchess.
