Who gave you your diagnosis? It is a little unusual but I guess it is possible. What category of BPD?

Well you need to know there are a number of categories of BPD. Emotionally unstable? It sounds to me like your Doctors are unsure.

Hi
I received an inconclusive diagnosis.....definitely bipolar.....possibly BPD. My feelings are that when I a, deeply depressed, like now, I wish I could tap into that manic "high" just to drag myself out of it. When I feel bad I impulsively/compulsively gamble, smoke pot or just buy something to feel better or escape. I mask my behaviour pretty wel although it is becoming more obvious to those very few that are close to me. Any of this sound familiar to you??

Very familiar experiences but its more during hypomania that I do my spending sprees and impulsive behaviour, drinking smoking weed etc. Have got myself into a lot of debt and drink alot make impulsive decions out of excitement and have racing ideas about my future career what im going to do etc Almost hyper like a child is to the point where it annoys others.

When am low feel all the usual symptoms of depression....but try and pick myself up by spending/treating myself but then feel guilty as I no im in so much debt and cant afford to live. Also I make impulsive decisions in agitation and am sensitive to what anyone sais when am low. Have tried to take my life twice when things got very low.
