I saw my psychologist with my support worker in Tuesday and apparantly I dont fit the criteria of BPD anymore, but I'm still me and I guess triggers will always be there.
Anyway one of my difficulties which I forgot to ask her about was I often in the past have felt threatened by people who are lots younger than me who have been able to get help that was refused me well it feels that way. And they are getting help which is awesome and noone was there to help me.
Do others with BPD have this or is it something else totally different

It kinda sounds like a form of jealousy?

I understand what you meant like if someone younger than me seems to have their sh*t together it does make me feel inferior to them and it hurts bc I feel like I should be “better” than them, I’m older.

A younger person just joined my team at work (I used to be youngest) and I’m like crap I have to up my game and like dress better and do my makeup...

I just really like to be best but my people pleasing nature covers that up. People would be surprised to know how much I want to be the best at everything.
