To understand a true Borderline... think White swan ~ Black swan. Rare bird with both white and black feathered wings. Magnificent, pristine, pure as fresh fallen virgin snow angels .... but also soooo horribly dark and bitter, black as pitch, angry, vicious, savage, furious fucking rage that would scare the devil himself.

Your Honor, in my defense, I did try to warn all my ex lovers and therapists.

Hello everyone,

I'm not quite sure thats how it works here but I dont know where else to post this.
The only reason I joined this website is because I might have some kind of disorder.
I dont know which one, I dont know anything really, i just know something is off? And that maybe you guys could help me figure stuff out?

I just turned 20, I am a female. If you think you could be of any help here or just wanna talk, I would be more than glad to share with you.

Good evening, hope this is going to work
Hey,

I too feel this way. I have a diagnosis of depression/general anxiety disorder since 2012/13 and feel also that it's not just those two that I have but I think I may have borderline disorder too... can anyone help me?

Thanks.

Hi people.
I hope it’s okay to post in here. I can’t figure out how to start a new thread.
But this has become my last resort to be honest. I got diagnosed with bpd when I was 20 and now almost 10 years on I’m struggling to see a way out.
I’ve been waiting on the mental health team but things are taking forever. I’ve been hospitalised through self injury before ect... my relationships just fall apart because I go distant and don’t want intimacy ect... it’s all just driving me mad now. I’ve tried most anti depressants and the dr said I can’t go on mood stabilisers until I’ve seen my councelor and they agree to it. Things are just getting too hard now again. I haven’t self harmed in 4 years but recently the urge is just getting too strong to stop it anymore. I know I’m laying my soul on this thread and I appologise but I can’t talk to anybody as nobody understands
Or wants to understand because they have their own stuff to deal with. I’m just at the end of what I can’t take

Just go to the forum page of your choice, for example, here in 'Borderline Personality Disorder,' and then click on the Red + Post New Thread box that is at the top towards the left, and then fill things in. If you start a thread it may get more reads and be better suited instead of being in here.

In the meantime, do not self-harm. You've been doing really well, stay with it and don't allow yourself to drop into that negative pattern of doing that again.

Yes.Getting fixated on past traumas or issues is a very common part of bpd.
I have witnessed so many people in DBT that were unable to move forward because of this. I was also told by my DBT therapist that many people with a bpd diagnosis struggle to respond to the therapy because of difficulties moving forward.

I am finding it difficult to get my daughter help with this. When I read this it is my daughter to a tee , we ar under a daughter who referred us for counselling but they said they can not help. They have referred her for ADHD she is 23 a 12 month waiting list. , she is now doing drugs (weed) she can keep a job as she tends to upset people she has built up extreme debt , in the verge of trouble with please. When she is not out she spends time in bed. She finds it hard to tell the truth ever , I need help it is killing me and causing so many family arguments.

You need to do more reading on bpd. It’s often a result of how the child was raised. If you can recognize your own culpability, you may be able to help.

I think finding blame might not be the best way forward - a child's upbringing is definitely a key part to BPD but its not all about parental neglect/poor treatment. It can also be around for example pushing a child to do well at school - if a child is biologically prone to BPD then that sort of encouragement can lead to them obsessing over being perfect and not failing etc. Its very complicated.
If you can google the bio-social for BPD it may shed some light on what caused it but not necessarily what to do next.
A psychotherapist would normally diagnose it so maybe ask your GP for a referral? Explain that you've been reading up on BPD and list the symptoms of it that your daughter is displaying. Could you afford to go private for a one off assessment? Its a tough process.
Good luck x

I am finding it difficult to disentangle cPTSD from BPD, i have watched some videos, read articles and looked through postings here. maybe i am asking in the wrong location, but wanted to try anyway. Anyone have any thoughts, or come from cPTSD to realise they have BPD.
