Jul 25, 2012 · Borderline disorder in a teen. in Mental Health

Thank you so much!! It does give me hope. My ex husband did not believe at first, about the BPD. He would not believe it. And now he is starting to believe it, but not accepting it. He agrees there is a problem, but he is not looking into the matter. Not researching it. I gave him a book called “I hate you, don’t leave me”. It took me forever to get thru’ it, just because it was so depressing, until towards the end where it gave some hope. We have fought about it. I have been trying to find a physcologist that specializes in Borderline in teens. There is not one in our area, the one we have has studied this and is familiar with it, but does not specialize in it. They say that they cannot treat my son as a borderline, just because the symptoms are so similiar to teen behavior. But the doctors have said that he does have the classic symptoms of this. So it is frustrating.

I will look up the stuff you have told me. And thank you so much for the advice. I really appreciate it. It just seems at times that there is no where to go and no one to talk to about this. There is no way I would ever give up on my son. No matter what, I will always be there for him. It is just sad that he has to go thru’ all this, and I don’t know if he even understands it himself.

Again, thank you, for the encouragement and advice!! It goes a long way to hear that someone else has made it with this, and is succeeding at life. Thank you!

Thank you. He does have a physciatrist, and they have changed his meds several times, dosages and different meds. One that he is on, is abilify. He is in high school and has had to go to in-patient therapy a few times. Which has messed up his school grades and the way some people percieve him. I have always just wanted him to succeed in whatever he chose to do, and now this is really making it hard for him to be a carefree kid. He has made some poor judgement choices, which the dr. said the abilify should help. It hasn’t yet. I guess I am just scared that he wont be able to lead a normal life, unless he gets the help he needs, but so far, I have not been able to find for him. He is a very smart and talented boy, and this is making things so difficult for him, which in turn, makes it difficult for me. I get really sad and frustrated that there is not a lot of help or information out there to turn to. Thank you for your information and encouragement.

Jul 18, 2012 · Trying To Cope With BPD in Mental Health

How did you, or loved ones help you the most? My son seems to be going down hill, and I can’t seem to help him. What is it they did or did not do to help you the most.? He is on 4 different meds, including a mood stabalizer. I just don’t know what to do to help him. Any advice?

My son is diagnosed with bipolor/borderline disorder. He is on meds and has a phsycologist that he sees weekly. As in the symptoms of this, he is o.k. for a short period of time, then he wreak havoc. It seems to be getting worse instead of better. I really do not know what to do. He has been in and out of hospitals, which does not seem to help. There are no answers and I do not know what else to do. Can anyone give me some real advice?
