Sorry if this has been posted before, tried searching and couldn't find anything. ^^; So BPD has been bought up a few times over the years in conversations with GPs, but I've always run away from the diagnosis and strongly denied it (I guess due to a lot of misunderstanding as to what a BPD diagnosis would actually mean, I guess). Recently I was trying to explain what goes on in my head to a housemate, and he bought up that "it sounds a lot like borderline". Turns out he was diagnosed with BPD a couple years ago, so we had a good talk about it, and I must admit, it makes a lot of sense. The thing is, I'm not sure how to bring this concern up with my psychologist. Do I just tell her I think I might have BPD? Any advice from people with similar experiences would be great ^^;
Last week, I was told by my psychiatrist to identify where I store my anger and to in the next session (tomorrow), tell him ways I can effectively manage it. This seems like such a simple task, but I am struggling. The task seemed so out of the blue because I've never considered myself an angry person at all. I figured that I chronically suppress such feelings. Where does that bleed into, though? Impulsivity, probably. I write, which I suppose is a solution; however, writing doesn't really do much in the part of actually solving a problem. I let my anger ruminate. I don't know what to do. I've looked stuff up online, but I can't find much, if anything. How do you deal with your anger? I am more interested to know from people who have issues with suppressing it. Any and all input is welcome, though. ** I was not sure where to put this topic or if there is a large number of topics on this issue. I apologize in advance if I made an oops. **
