HLon has a good point - getting or feeling better just doesn't happen, it takes work, even with drugs. Self-medicating doesn't help, and stuff like Valium is dangerous long term.

clearly your anxiety is out of control, which really sucks. As long it it has a hold of you, you are going to find it hard to figure out a plan to improve.

do you know what your anxiety triggers are?

Could this group name and sticky thread be amended to include the term Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD) please? Not everyone knows that they're the same thing and that EUPD is becoming the preferred term for our diagnosis these days.

I don't know that I like EUPD anymore than BPD, to be honest.

It's my preference, but they're both not great. Still, it's the way a lot of professionals and MH services are going.

hi BorderlineDownunder
I am a new member. I am from Ontario Canada. I currently live in Toronto but I have to move. Long crazy story. I am to unstable to work or rather working makes me unstable. I have a low tolerance to being used or abused at work yet I let my daughter walk all over me. But then again allot of guilt around her because I made her sick like me. Borderlines can't live together. That I am sure of. This next move will be the 20th time in my life I have had to start over. This time however will be the hardest. Rents are completely out of reach for me in the city. I will be homeless by end of March and frankly right now I am so ready to throw away everything I own and just get on a bus and keeping going until I end up in a ditch somewhere to die. I've live like this too long and no professional help has ever helped. Meds just make me more delusional and eventually sick from prolonged side effects or the meds just stop working. Opiates work though but of course they are illegal and painfully addictive. I am finished with all the drug abuse. Stopped all meds 2 months ago. O hell I don't know why I am unloading on you. Sorry but I just feel so hopeless and done for.
i feel just like you. Today not as much as a few weeks ago. Shoot me an inbox if you just need a friend
