  1. major rant ahead. I hope it's pretty obvious this isn't directed towards anyone in the community! Borderline personality disorder, and people with it especially, get demonized a lot. We're manipulative, we're awful, we're sirens who suck men in and spit out their bones. (I'm sure it doesn't help that borderline personality disorder is predominantly diagnosed in women.) In Jonathan Kellerman's novel, Silent Partner, this is the description of a person with borderline personality disorder (by the way, Jonathan Kellerman IS A PSYCHOLOGIST): That is a goddamn lie. I honestly never believed that I would ever be able to say that I liked any part of myself, that any part of myself deserved compassion, that my self-worth and self-validation could come from myself, and that I didn't have to live with pain eating a hole in me like a cancer. I can do all of that now; not perfectly, not easily, but I have changed. And it wasn't people who told me that I was "living from one emotional disaster to the next" who helped me do that, it was people who treated me with respect, compassion, and understanding. For everyone out there still perpetuating the stigma, go fuck yourselves. That includes you, Sheri Shreiber, Savory Dish (a blog with the tagline "when the woman you love is fucked up beyond belief") and whoever the fuck is running my BPD recovery at blogspot. (Look at how fucking self centered that is. "His" BPD recovery is recovering from being in a romantic relationship with someone who supposedly has borderline personality disorder. As opposed to, I don't know, ACTUALLY HAVING BPD AND RECOVERING FROM IT.) You want to know what MY recovery from BPD is like? This is what it's like. I am what it's like, right fucking here----I have many friends, some of over 15 years duration, I have a stable life, I recognize and work on my problems, and I'm in love with a guy whose main criticism of me is that I'm too hard on myself and who wishes I'd open up more when I'm upset. Demonizing people with BPD is adding insult to serious injury. It makes it harder to get treatment, harder to recover, and worst of all, harder to admit that the diagnosis might be applicable in the first place----they're constructing barriers between someone in pain and treatment. I really can't understand why they all seem so goddamn proud of themselves. I would never wish the seemingly unending pain on these people of having borderline personality disorder, but sometimes, I'm pretty fucking tempted.
  2. Until recently I thought there was no meds for BPD, I thought it was just therapy treated. I also have Bipolar 2 and I have mood swings within mood swings. But the mood stabilizer has gotten rid of my Bpd rage and intense emotions along with the bipolar long depressions and highs. Anybody else found a medication that worked for there BPD moods?
  3. Hello everyone. My name is Erica. I'm new here, from New York. Looking to make new friends. Hopefully find people to help me cope. Don't really have anyone who understands, Holidays are really are and I am already panicking really bad about being around people tomorrow. Sorry to be a bother. Feel free to say hi. Thanks
