    Hello Aguest, welcome back!
    Indeed, your concern is a valid once and has been reported many times! Some studies do claim that ADs effect may affect a person's creativity, yet no one is sure yet on how and why! If you're not doing any good on Prozac, ever thought of switching to another AD?

    r90 got a reaction from desperados in Clinical Depression Vs Major Depression   
    Hey there sadmelissa,
    As far as I know, both terms are about the same condition, whether it is clinical depression, major depression or simply depression.
    Now some people may differentiate between clinical/major depression and what is known as situational depression.
    Good luck in your treatment,

    Hey again,
    I'm sorry Sarah to hear so, to hear that you are not able to get a proper care as soon as possible, now I don't really know about the health and mental system in your country, but let me say this: of course, if you are severely ill, there's "no way on earth" can treats you other than under a proper and professional care of a mental health professional or doctors but what I wanna really focus at is that you can, in the meantime, learn some relaxation and self-care techniques that may (or may not) temporarily ease the pain and the anxiety until you get to see a doctor or a psychotherapist for DBT!
    May I share a bit of my story? I've been suffering for like 4 years now, I mainly suffer from BPD, dysthymia and OCD, I live in Lebanon, which is a very weak country in terms of mental health awareness and even social recognition of mental disorders, I've secretly tried to see a "neurologist" (just a note, psychiatrists are extremely rare in my country, and they are, if found, absolutely expensive, so can't naturally afford them), the meds didn't help me or I couldn't keep trying meds for months till they work because after all, I also can't afford buying them on my own (and not to mention, SECRETLY taking them!) So I am learning how to cope without any kind of treatment, yes it's hard, frustrating and difficult, what sometimes keeps me on my feet is me graduating this semester and finally leaving... (thanks to the return of a partial motivation)
    For people who have the opportunity to get properly treated, GO for it in any possible way!

    After reading "You Know You're Bipolar When..." thread, Got the idea to open a "borderline" version... So share your thoughts!!
    Starting by myself... You know you're borderline when :
    "You keep roaming and roaming searching for something to fill your emptiness"
    "You are hyper and hopeful, 5 minutes later, you're now officialy entering a depressive state of mind"
    "Impulsiveness is sometimes a priority over work and education"
    "There are 2 kinds of people: yourself and the rest 'bad' people"
    "Sometimes you ask yourself: May this be a dream ?"
    "Your thought is totally twisted and deformed and would never be normal"
    "You know your diagnosis more than your pdoc!!"

    Hello there FlyingDream and Sarahks, welcome to DF =) (Hey Girly! How are you?)
    (allow me to repeat one of my dearest "you know..." thought)
    *You know you're borderline when you start believing in reincarnation out of desperation and in a hope of another chance, another life...
    You know you're borderline when you think that failure is all what you got and what you achieved, yet you keep "convincing" yourself that this is all because of "depression"
    You know you're borderline when you keep visiting Google over and over searching and looking for answers you may already know, just for the sake of some unexplained "relief"

    As a BPD sufferer, do you work? If yes, a part-time or a full-time job?
    Part of my research on BPD, being a BPD sufferer and being a part-time worker, I started to notice that people with BPD can't work for a full-time, because of "that" unexplained symptom of BPD.

    Oh may God help you, being a single mother is a full-time job by itself :)
    I also work 3 days a week, however the number of hours is not fixed, ranging between 6 to 12 hours, but usually 9 hours... But if I were asked to work an extra day, I'd say no way that's going to happen, I just can't :( I guess it's because of that "unknown symptom title" of BPD

    r90 got a reaction from Joyandsmile in Bpd - Empathy?   
    I understand that, most of us, if not all of us, who suffer from BPD have a huge problem regarding emotional regulation, that's why emotional regulation is a new name suggestion of BPD.
    Actually what bothers me a lot, is seeing other people being able of controlling and regulating their own emotions in an easy time, they don't have to struggle like we do!
