Hi, I'm just curious what are your symptoms, how it looks. There are 256 different combinations of symptoms to diagnose bpd.
I would like to hear what do you feel :)

My symptoms have changed with age and becoming aware and working on my bpd condition. I have a lot of the typical symptoms, but again dependant on environment and the people around me, these vary in severity :)

This is an interesting topic @Blackwolf I will have to spend a bit of time writing a proper response out. So will share it here when I have 👍

Someone want to share? Maybe I could learn a thing or two from you. For example naming what I feel or similar states of mind, I find it hard to express how about you? Can you talk about your feelings and so on with ease or do you lack words and can't find matching ones?

Nobody is ever 100% bpd, but most I have been told are firmly rooted in cluster b.

So in other words you can present with some symptoms but not all and still have bpd.

That said, it's better to work on your own personal symptoms and experiences rather than obsess about a diagnosis. In the end, the diagnosis only helps to better direct the therapy, and if you have a competent therapist that will happen naturally.

I had all the symptoms when diagnosed. But as the years have past I have used various tools to lesson their hold on me or to change bad coping skills with better less destructive ones. I still have bad episodes but I understand them more as I begin to accept i have bpd.

My worst symptoms are my strong emotions. Ok one moment, then really bad the next. SH often. Abandonment always. Black and white thinking, everything is really good or really bad. Substance abuse to block out the pain. Past trauma and abuse have a huge roll to play. Bad sleep.
it’s hard to navigate and I really have no answers but I hope you can find some peace within yourself because we are very in tune with others and very empathetic.
