I'm feeling really down about the lack of help available for those with BPD where I live. So far after an overdose I was told off a CPN that I was being 'childish,' been discharged from the NHS three times without ever having a proper assessment, there are no support groups locally and I just can't seem to get help.

Hi,
That's terrible, have you maybe thought of campaiging for some services?
Some CPN's should have better training.
I hope you find some help.
Take care

Hi LizardQueen,

Sad to hear about your difficulties with services. Give some people a uniform, a badge, and well...
Unfairly, the bloody health services postcode lottery still seems to be alive and well (unlike some of its patients). In Aberdeenshire, one of my sons got transferred to Aberdeen; given the best residential treatment which, I'll never stop singing their praises for. I really don't mean to crow - I'm emphasising the inconsistencies of disparity in the regions. I'm assuming you have had a really good look at what's available. Perhaps it is a question of sitting on the phone with a pad and pen. I'm sorry there's no real easy answers without knowing where you are and, I think Identification is forbidden on this site.
Wishing you peace of mind
