Trying To Cope With Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
I just joined. I was recently diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. I was actually happy to finally have a name for my “monster”. For about 15 years I just figured that this was what life was like for a girl. Ups and downs all the time! For 10 years now I was under the general label of depression and taking antidepression meds which work about 75% of the time. Recently I started seeing a new psychologist and in my ramblings she said I was a text book definition. After looking it up, I had to agree! Now my next step is getting into a psychiatrist to change my medication to a mood stabilizer which she said will be much better. She said the grass will be greener and those things that really weigh on me will just slide off. I hope she’s right. I’m in a down mood now and can hardly stand it. The thing that sucks is there are hardly any psychiatrists in the area taking new patients. I finally got an appt with one in July but he seems like an ass. Hoping I can find another one before then.
