  3. hi so i'm on my way to getting a diagnosis with BPD, its been a long time coming so ive had time to research and find out more about what might be good coping mechanisms but im yet to find advice for my current situation. a few weeks ago a friend who i was very attached to decided they no longer wanted anything to do with me. this hit me very hard as as i mentioned i had a very deep connection with them on my end anyway. i really need advice as to how to cope with this because it still feels like my chest is being crushed and i cant breathe and it doesnt help that they live in the block of fla

    BPD and Lockdown

    I had to stop my psychotherapy from February 2020 which feels like all the progress I’ve done is gone and now I am even in a worst shape. Finally I came across a GP who acknowledged my struggles and referred me to a psychiatrist. I just got diagnosed with EUPD few days ago and it makes so much sense. It’s like finally I understand why I am the way I am. Before GP just treated me for depression, but additionally I was facing and experiencing many more struggles. Above feeling severely depressed on and of since I was 8 years old until now 31 years of age I was very confused and couldn’

    How much stress can a bpd person take?

    Hi Scott, You went through a lot of painful events in your life. Reading your story made me sad, unfair and angry. I won’t go through every event from your story, I will comment just on a last bit about relationship. After suffering from separation anxiety and depression from age of 8 years old ( I am 31 now) including trauma and numerous horrible events which I had to experience and live through until this day. I only got diagnosed with borderline personality disorder ( I prefer to call it emotionally unstable personality disorder EUPD) last week, which gave me so many answers to wh

    Hello Sah! Thank you for responding. Such a nice feeling even if just one person replied How old are you and where are you from? You don’t have to answer. I’m 31 and I live in Dublin, I am lucky enough to be in a fulfilling and happy relationship with my husband for last 12 years, he is my rock, he didn’t gave up on me even then I was suicidal. I feel so much guilt for putting him through all the hardship, but that’s just one of the symptoms talking. He hates then I apologise for times when I am angry, irritated, depressed. He is the best thing that happened to me after all the abuse

    Hello Duir and Princess Peach, Nice posts both of you . With my dx I have always struggled to believe this is me, and started down the mental road of, I am my dx, which just isn't the case by the way. Somedays, I still struggle with believing that MH means I have some limitations that I need to pay loving attention to. I have been through CBT and DBT which helped me a lot, It was a real commitment, I still have to brush up. Which is part of why I loom the empty halls of the site, to remind myself and post when I can. I know receiving a dx can be a confusing time, one of learning and

    Hi Adam, I just joined this forum myself. I see that your message was posted in October 2020 and since it’s so quiet here I decided to reply anyway in hope to start conversation. I just got diagnosed with EUPD. Finally I got an answer to why I am the way I am, the more I read about this illness the more it makes sense to me. I was diagnosed by GP with depression, but I always felt that there is more unanswered symptoms which made me very confused and without a clue or a slightest idea or direction of where I can look for answers. I had separation anxiety since I was

    CAMHS diagnosed 'Emotional Dysregulation'

    Hello, and I do feel for you both regarding your posts. This site is a peer support site that has gone very quite, so there are very few members that post anymore, we do have a lot that lurk, clicking round to see how it is all still working, but most of those that post are very new like yourselves or very old members, 5+ years ago. Welcome to the site both I hope you are able to find some like minded support in the quiet. Sometimes reading through older posts can help in finding answers. I have never been actually DX's with ED or CAMHS, so I would feel a bit out of depth on both topics.

    CAMHS diagnosed 'Emotional Dysregulation'

    Ive only just found this website, but I'm sorry you still haven't received a response! I was diagnosed with EUPD/BPD traits for a while and then received a EUPD/BPD diagnosis after years of knowing it was the diagnosis that fit my symptoms best. As far as I'm aware, CAMHS are very reluctant to diagnose BPD in those under 18 as it is believed that our 'personalities' don't fully develop until adulthood. Emotional dysregulation is a symptom of BPD, however it isn't the same diagnosis. Those with autism and ADHD can struggle with emotional dysregulation and not have BPD, similarly, sometimes

  17. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply and thank you for your kind words. You sound like you are doing really well and it is great you know the tools and what to do when you may need a little time to recover and get better. Yes we have a little what’s app group Thank you for your positivity it has made me feel so much better talking to someone who has borderline especially as most texts online can be negative. I will have a look at spoons theory now
  18. I'm really glad she's safe, but sounds super tough for you all! I currently do DBT privately and I have a one to one session and then access to text coaching with my therapist between sessions. They also offer the group, which I am now doing for the second time (which is recommended) to get the skills properly ingrained. I think two sessions a week would deffo be enough, to begin with she may actually find that a bit overwhelming (having BPD is exhausting) so be prepared to be flexible on what the initial approach will be. DBT does not require a patient to be stable before starting treatment u
  19. Thank you both for your reply. She has self harmed several times so is now staying with my mum and dad to ensure she stays safe. She is currently safe atm but we are desperately trying to get the relevant help as crisis team come every day just to give her medication and we have been told therapy is a 6 month wait away. We believe she needs inpatient help urgently. She’s been this way since august but since Christmas she has become very very unwell. I will ring mind today and ask for an advocate. We are looking into a psychiatrist who will do DBT therapy will 2 sessions a week be enough? Is
  20. Hello, Firstly I am so sorry that your sister and your family are going through this. I have BPD and I know how tough it has been for my family. Stay strong and keep talking to your support network because you need to take time for yourself too. Does she have an independent MH advocate? If not I would definitely get one asap, MIND usually provide this service but it will depend what area you are in as to what service holds the contract. An advocate knows the system and is there to act entirely in the interest of the patient and represent their views and wishes. I would also urgentl
  21. Is she currently safe, does she have a therapist or Psychiatrist? That would be a first option to speak with her support staff. If she is unsafe she may need to be admitted through emergency.
  22. I am urgently seeking any advice or guidance to help get my sister inpatient care. She has BPD and is extremely unwell at the moment. She has the crisis team round daily but it is absoutley shocking service. We are getting told there is not enough funding for her to access inpatient care. Can someone please help give advice or guidance on this situation. I am extremely worried

    Complex needs Service

    Has anyone else had experience of the Complex Needs Service please? I'm currently undergoing assessment to see if I am suitable and it sounds good but I'm worried I'll be rejected and handed back to the community team who have offered me no therapy at all in the three years since I was diagnosed. thank you
  25. Hey Louisa, Sadly this place like a ghost time these days and has been for a few years to be honest... A lot changed and people stopped coming back to use this place... I'm an old member and try and pop on ever now and then... I myself am and have struggled with all these lockdowns and changes we have all had to try and deal with somehow in the last year... I'm here if you want to chat... Take care...
