  1. Hello everyone, So it has been a while since I have posted on the forum, but I wanted to hear from others on this topic. What does identity instability look like for people with borderline personality disorder? I want to get feedback from people who actually deal with this problem. The reason is that I believe I deal with this problem (feeling like I don't know who I am, confusion about gender/sexuality, not knowing what I truly believe in, feeling like I lose myself in others, changing goals/career ideas, etc.) This is a longstanding issue. I was diagnosed with Bipolar 1 disorder in
  2. As suggested, I'm reposting in this section. Once again, I am looking for help/feedback/suggestions (FOR MYSELF) on how to deal with a family member (whom I care very much for) who is exhibiting difficult "personality disorder" type behavior. I'm sorry I don't know how else to categorize her cluster of symptoms, apart from describing it as Borderline disorder or Histrionic disorder- like......I have much empathy for her, I listen to her, tell her I love her, however, her condition is getting worse. I am the only "ear" for her & person who cares about her. As you can imagine, I am g
  3. My mother is 75 years old. She’s always been a supportive, loving, best friend to me, and I see her every year for the holidays. Due to my history with depression, I have much empathy for any problems she has, listen to her, tell her I love her, etc. I’m beginning to think she has some sort of Personality disorder. Over the last 3-5 years or so, she has become: Excessively sensitive to any sort of perceived criticism & is in a state of amplified distress, to the point where she breaks down into exaggerated sobbing several times per day, acting the victim, for no justifiable reas
  4. Hi everyone, I edited this post because I decided it would be better to leave particulars out. However, I know someone who I suspect may be on the Schizoid continuum and was wondering if those of you with that diagnoses would be willing to share their experiences with the disorder. Can you be social, even though you don't want to be? Do you absolutely prefer to be alone and shun social contact, or have a few people that you can tolerate in your life? How does it feel inside, or better yet how do you try to express your internal state? Do you feel split? Do you crave a connection with
  5. Less than a year ago I began seeing a new therapist after the other retired. By the second session it became clear the pattern of behaviors I've been living with, and avoidant personality disorder is what he threw out to me as I'd been saying I wish I had a name for this, know depression couldn't be the only reason behind what I was going through. Ever since then I've been trying to break up the pattern and do the opposite of what I naturally lean towards. I'm making a little progress, but it still hangs around in my mind the idea that it's too late to make a difference. I'm too set in my ways
  6. Hi I know there is a sense of irony if you write NPD and then write help but any way... I was referred to see a personality disorder specialist which came to me as a surprise. Initially I assumed that my CPN(community psychiatric nurse) was thinking that I might have BPD despite having Bipolar Type 1 with proper full on psychotic and violent manic episodes. So I approached her with this assumption and said with a sarcastic tone 'Do you think I am over-sensitive?' 'Do you think I feel empty inside?' Do you think I'm overly emotional?' 'It's my bipolar diagnosis isn't it, the symptoms?
  7. I've read that group therapy is usually suggested for learning social skills and whatnot. I don't know anything about group therapy and I'm probably not the only one, so I was wondering if someone would care to share their experiences and maybe explain what it is all about. What kind of people are usually grouped together, how much are you expected to share, do you get assignments, etc. Also, I'm worried that I'd end up being mean to the others, I don't know what to do about that.
  8. Hello, my name is Simone. I've checked out this place a few times and I finally decided to make an account. I got out of inpatient a few months ago and I'm doing pretty good, but I do need support from time to time to keep me on track. This website seemed friendly and has a bit of a twisted sense of humor, which is awesome by me. I'm a member of some other support sites, but they are for specific problems and I needed a place that was more general because, like most people, I have more than one problem. I am diagnosed with Major Depression, Dysthymia, and Personality Disorder NOS. I struggle w
  9. I'm just curious to hear your thoughts on this. I am generally able to spot the "craziest" person in the room, just by their eyes.I believe I am able to pick up the vibes of people with mental illness/personality disorders....and I tend to get along very well with those people! Do you guys also have the ability to spot these people?And aren't they the greatest? I believe mental illness/personality disorders are just a coping mechanism & it's a damn good one too.Just makes us stronger/more intuitive/more sensitive and dare I say...more intelligent. Any thoughts?
  10. My problems seem really trivial compared to what a lot of people are going through. I'm almost embarrassed to post about them because they seem so petty, but at the same time I know that my life is going to hell in a handbasket right now, or at least getting there, and I can't talk to anyone about it. You don't have to read it all, I just want it written down somewhere so I can remember when all the details go fuzzy. Let's start with the basic stats. I'm 15 years old. I am a sophomore in college - yes, "real" college, not college classes in high school or college prep or whatever. I'm tri
  11. Hey guys, just wanted to say hello to all you OCD'ers out there and thought I'd start a thread for OCPD. As msot of you know, OCPD stands for Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, which I was diagnosed with about 2 years ago. Essentially, it means that you don't have a compulsive trigger & response, (checking, counting, turning knobs certain ways, etc), but rather entails your entire life being something you want to manage and alter to a state of perfection in any way possible. I've attached an interesting description of OCPD that's from the OCD Foundation itself, which includes
