Over controlled BPD?



New member

I got the diagnosis about two months ago, during that time i was deeply depressed and did not ask what it meant. I wanted to be able to get dbt (dialectic behavior therapy). Now, when i feel better, i've been trying to find info but i can't find the term "over controled" bpd. Have any of you heard about it? The more i read, the less I understand how a diagnosis, know for dysregulation, can be controled? Or is control and regulation not event close to each other in clinical terms?

I don't dare talk to my doctor, in case he takes me of the waiting list (>12 month). I've been sick, in and out of depresion and mania (bipolar as wellness) for five years now. I'm desperate for some long term treatment and they haven't offerd me anything else.

Read all you can on the disorder. For me it was like a lightbulb going on. It provided me context on long term social issues and further allowed me to identify the source of chronic problems.

Your doctor won’t take you off the wait list, in fact, being honest may accelerate it.

It’s not a jail sentence. You can cope. You just have to be tired of the status quo and want change. But it takes work.

You can do it.
