Hi I have BPD and OCD, I am now good in my relationship as long as ignore certain thoughts. Sometimes my thoughts get the better of me and certain things may happen and I become insecure and I start distancing myself away from her basically I get scared of getting hurt so I want to leave before she does, even though I know she doesn't want to leave. Anyone else suffer in relationships like this ?

Hiya and welcome to the forum. We have a BPD area where you will find a lot of people who identify what you are going through. Have you ever tried Mindfulness? It might help you place your feelings and stop you acting on them too quickly. Its not an easy fix but over time might help you. We have a brief intro on here which might help.

Hi thank u for replying I will definitely give this a try and I do react really quick instead of just taking a step back. I think it’s because I over think so I think if I act right away I don’t have time to over think X

That is a problem isn't it? You need to look it up to gain more insight. Its practise, practise and more to make it work. But I use it and it helps me in all sorts of situations.
