Hello? Is this thing on?
yes I understand . Begin reading walking on eggshells if this is Bpd . If something else get as much info and education on it to deal with this . I had to remove all contact with a sister who has Borderline PD. Sometimes you have to do that for your emotional safety.

Hi ! Living with a man that has antisocial p.d. is no picnic! I love who he is at the core. It is the disorder that isn't so friendly. Lot's of lies about anything, and a seemingly selfish, self absorbed demeanor are only a mask for him. I know he really has a very low self esteem. I remain quiet and must absorb the less appealing parts of him. That is where I pray this site can help me!

GoddessoWind; It's very hard. You may be suffering from PTSD, as it is traumatic to wrap your mind around your ex's personality. Biggest thing, they draw you in. They don't realize they are sick & you suffer. Then they are gone. Leaves you empty & confused. Maybe depressed?

Hello,
I will keep this short and sweet, but I just need some basic advice. I was dating a man with BPD for over a year. We just got our first place together and things have been really rocky. He just moved out a couple of weeks ago and in with a friend. He has asked to keep his belongings at what was out place along with his animals. I eventually was okay with it, then we hung out a couple of times. Things went well until the second time, when I said something that apparently was triggering to him. He asked for space the next day and long story short, I texted him a few messages because I was having a hard day in general. He finally got all of my messages and chewed me out for invading his space. This is a side of him I have never seen before. He was so extremely hurtful and Angeles towards me. I'm pretty sure he is splitting but it was just awful. I don't know why I am getting the love and then anger. I don't know how to handle this situation.

Hoping to hear from someone...
I'm here. Would love to connect and share....I too am wanting to find support.

I can relate. My b/f has been diagnosed with depression and is on medication, seeing a therapist and a psychiatrist. He has had 8 jobs in the past year. He interviews well, but once he gets the job, he gets discouraged and quits after a week or two. Before he was on meds, he was verbally abusive to me and the road rage was terrible. He is much better now, but I cannot take the constant job hopping. He is retired and doesn't need to work, but I need to have him out of the house--when he is here, he micromanages everything I do--from what am I eating for breakfast to what am I wearing to yoga class to when will I be home. It drives me bananas. I spend as little time at home as possible because I cannot stand this. It is suffocating. The latest happened tonight. He was supposed to start a new job tomorrow, and I was so looking forward to having my life back after weeks of having him home. Tonight he announced that he would not go to this job because it's "not what I want to do." I am ready to pack this relationship in, and we've been together 8 years. Advice, anyone?
