I have understood I have had borderline personality disorder for some time, I have gotten therapy twice, but never been diagnosed and have never had it help too much. I have gotten a referral to a psychiatrist, after I had an extreme breakdown including considering suicide, threatening suicide to my (then) partner, and absolutely losing control. I have since lost my partner of a year and a half, and knew I needed to get more serious help. Would you recommend bringing up borderline personality disorder at my appointment, or let them figure it out on their own? What should I expect from my first appointment?Also, to you who have bpd, have any of you been on mood stabilizers and how did it work for you? From the research I have done I think they would help me a lot considering I deal with emotional dysregulation A LOT. Going through a tough time, and pretty confused, so would like any advice I could get about bpd!!
