Hello! Im new to this forum so hello everyone- i was diagnosed with bpd 3 months ago after my husband divorced me im only 24 years old- i have always suffered from impulses and bad bad mood swings and feelings that i struggle to cope with and find overwhelming! I always thought i just had a crazy and nasty personality until i decided that i couldnt continue to live like this and sought help- im struggling to come to terms with it- i am pushing everyone away i feel like giving up i just ruin everything the horrid moods come all of a sudden over something so silly!! Ive just finished group therapy for coping skills i dont feel it helped when i was diagnosed they said i had emotional dysfunction but when i went ti the therapy i was then in a group of everyone with borderline this is how i found out all symptoms fit with me sadly when u feel happy i think i dont have borderline but then i get bought back to reality when i sink again!! I dont feel like i have my own wants and desires it depends who i am with and what they are doing my values and opinions change all of the time how can i live with being this way forever :(

Hi MissAylo
I'm sorry to hear your struggling and recent divorce that must of been a lot of stress, I'm 24 like you I was diagnosed with cyclothymia 4 years ago but seen a lot of different psychiatrists at my hospital which haven't helped finally been given a higher staff, he diagnosed me with cyclothymia and BPD specially with I have unstable emotions which before I never looked at but looking at it a lot of the symptoms fit.

I have tried CBT and group therapy didn't help me not even a little bit, he said next step for me is DBT which I don't have any faith in either. I believe you and I can get better and even thought nothing has worked up to yet we need that hope.

It is very hard when you get brought back down feels like it breaks your hope every single time :( and I'm the same not knowing who I really am because I act and feel different according to whom I'm with.

Just remember your not alone, hope been here helps :).

Welcome to the forum. :hi:
BPD is a real up/down and back around again kind of illness to have.
The healing journey is never a straight path, more like a labyrinth, if that makes sense.
I hope you find this forum helpful for you though. You're among people who can understand how it feels.

Hiya, just read your post and really related to the part where u said your opinions change depending on who youre with. I am exactly the same..I feel like ive got different personalities depending on who I am with. Also the amount of ridiculous wreckless things ive done are unreal. If you want to talk feel free to pm me. Take care x
