At last something I can show to my family and partner to explain the core essence of who and what I am. I am very grateful to you Echoes for this. Thank you so much.

It's so odd how I'm fine calling myself unstable, but when someone else did, I immediately shunned them from my life. I'm relating to this diagnosis more and more over the year.

I was just told last week that I am bp. I am just as described above but not so exaggerated. Could I have been diagnosed incorrectly?

shellybelly, let them know that you feel this way rather than turning away. See if they can help you find a better way.

Or sometimes we end up in a type of therapy that isn't helpful. If you haven't researched types of therapies and therapists, you can do so here: www.guidetopsychology.com.

I was fortunate to finally find, after many years, a therapist who is psychodynamic/psychoanalytic and who specializes in bpd. She has a Masters degree in Early Childhood Development and is certified in analysis. This is what I was looking for after researching. I found her by contacting the psychoanalytic insititute near me and asking if they had any candidates (students) near me. They did, my T. She has been a therapist for 20 years. I'm so so lucky to have found her.

I hope you find what you need, sb.

i think i heard somewhere that bpd is similar to other mental health issues. Like c ptsd. I personally don't know cos i'm not an expert. I really have that name borderline. Its so negative.

My t has indicated at times that i have BPD, but she has also said i have PTSD. The thing is, I don't fit the typical BPD pattern. I don't cut, rarely get angry, don't do drugs or get drunk. i don't threaten suicide, or feel suicidal very often. But i do have problems with my sense of self, pretty bad attachment problems, anxiety, dissociation, and black and white thinking. I've had emotional abuse and some SA in childhood. Do i sound like i fit more into a PTSD classification or C-PTSD?

larakeziah, I think depression is definitely a part of BPD. Life is frustrating and difficult and depression is a response to that.
