Borderline Personality Disorder… What is it?

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a serious mental disorder marked by a pattern of ongoing instability in moods, behavior, self-image, and functioning.

  • My mum has BPD and I’m almost certain that her childhood is to blame because I know it was traumatic for her 😐

  • after watching this video well…now I know why I felt that way. I would go speak about it to my therapist buuutt….I feel like she'll call bullcrap on it. Like my parents probably would if I told them this and how I've been feeling

  • I am diagnosed with BPD, therapy is not an option in my place, a neurologist does give me a prescription of antidepressants, but he does not offer talk therapy, so I practice self-therapy, it is not as effective as DBT mentioned in the video, but therapists in my place will try to instill their homophobic, conservative, tribal, and religious beliefs in me as part of (morality), that's why I stopped seeing them.
    I am very smart myself, but just like anyone else I simply can not see myself or interact with myself like I do other people, I would love to see fictional Characters with BPD to see how they act, I can tell right from wrong, so I would be able to understand my personality even more, and improve it to the better.
    I like anime, and Action stuff, so can you please make a suggestion 🙂

  • In my mind it’s always been the same convoluted self image in which I speak to myself with my thoughts like that of an outsiders point of view I just watch from the inside I speak in a dialect that all people are only here to give me pain of hate but I consciously know I’m the only one that’s wrong or how make my imagination of what it would look like if I stopped suppressing my urge to remove heads from they’re walking pedestals I simply fail to understand the ideal that When my eyes are closed I just see my eyes bleakness staring my way nothing in my life is fleeting nothing moves or at least I don’t time just leaving before I see it i don’t understand

  • I am on the verge of a break. But so far, I think BPD is the closest to the feeling I get. I hate everything I love, my opinions and thoughts make no sense. Why do I love something, but then later it might make me uncomfortable for reasons I can't even explain or understand? Why is it sometimes I may enjoy a show, a ship, a charater, but later it might make me uncomfortable to think about, or maybe even dislike it.
    Or it depends on context.

    A specific thing is say a gay ship. I only often have gay ships. But sometimes I get uncomfortable. I wonder why? is it the way it's written? The characters? is it the fact it's gay? Is it the fact I'm a girl? Is it the fact I wish I was a gay man? Do I really want to be? Is it the context? Do I was that was me, or do I want to avoid that?

    I feel trapped in my mind and I'm terrified. I just want it to stop and I want to be able to have opinions and thoughts that I understand. That I actively make.
    Am I homophobic, or do I want to BE a homosexual man?
    Am I transphobic, or do I envy those who are cis of the opposite gender?
    Do I dislike a character trait? Or do I love that character trait but only with specific designs or personalities…

    All these small things that don't even matter. Who cares about those things? But I do.. but I don't know why.

  • This makes so much sense to me, i thought the fear of abandonment came from something of the past that i forgot of, just like how i shaked when my mom yelled but not at me 😅.

  • "It's strange. If I could, I'd buy you the car you told me you always dreamed of, but if I could leave; I don't know that I'd ever want to see you again.

    You see, you're the biggest delusional, arrogant hypocrite I've ever had the displeasure of meeting, and if I wrote my my last goodbye note, it would primarily feature you.

    I love you, yet I do not like nor respect you; fuck you. You were the single most damaging, depressing, negative, toxic, infuriating, and prominent limitation that I've ever faced, and was stuck with. I GENUINELY feel that I may only start to find who I am and start my life when I leave yours.
    And I want you to know that I don't believe a single fucking word you say to me, and I've always felt like I've failed you, but not nearly as much as you've failed me.

  • Dpd is medical term invented by psychologist, people same as you, often deeply broken inside, suffering and looking for answers. It's not that you are ill and rest of society is OK. All it is matter of what you believe, because if you give it up to personal disorder, you for sure will be disordered. I wish you all best, I believe that every human has his own way and his own understanding of self and power to overcome every demon.

  • Just dropping by to let people know that my parents were very loving and I had no traumatic events occur in my life before I got into my second year of high school and I was already showing clear signs of borderline way before that, so please don't assume things. Cheers.

  • I just wish I could know if what I go through day to day is this or if it's normal without having to go talk to someone I cringe at the thought of seeing a therapist
