  1. Hi NotMeHere, welcome to DF. Does your wife know how you feel? Is it something you would feel comfortable talking to her about? Please know that you are not alone with these types of thoughts & feelings and a lack of friends and having issues with interaction. Have you thought about speaking with your GP/family doctor about how you feel? I hope that we can support you here on DF, this is a very friendly and supportive community. Make good care, Girly
  2. Hi flight01 welcome to DF, it is good to have you here with us. Many of us have or currently do struggle with weekends. Personally I find getting out there helps. A short walk, a trip to the shops or the park. Some human interaction. Have you looked at the website meet up? There may be things of interest in your local area that you could go to. Or do the local places of worship organise anything that interest you? There are also non religious groups that organise meetings at weekends. What interests you?
  3. Hi pixie pops I can't offer any advise as such, just wanted to let you know I'm in a similar situation as my work are looking to retire me medically. I have bpd too. Can you do some voluntary work?
  4. Hi Alex Welcome to DF, good to have you here. There is a chat room, once you have 20 posts you can participate in it. I hope DF helps you. Take good care, Girly
  5. Hi Therapy can most definitely help you to work through your anxiety and depression. There are a number of different types of therapy available. It is important to find a therapist that you feel comfortable with and that you feel can work well with you. A good therapist will help you to work through your issues and move forward in your life. Good luck.
  6. So your parents have to know or could you go without them? I understand in US you may be on their insurance.
  7. Hi Mouse90 Welcome to DF, it is great to have you here. I hope the forums really help you. Take good care, Girly
  8. Welcome Talie, it is great to read that you are 92 days free of self harm. You are really strong too. Take good care, Girly
  9. Hi sadfighter, welcome to DF. I'm so sorry to hear that you are feel in a dark pit right now. Hopefully new meds will really help you. Take good care, Girly
  10. Hi superlameworld welcome to DF. I read your whole post too. I can relate to a lot of what you have written. Have you spoken to a counsellor or doctor about your depression & the self harm? It is treatable and you can recover from this. I know that you feel sad about the guy & I don't think it is pathetic. Take care, Girly
  11. It is difficult when your sleep routine is out of whack. Where do you live? There may be options available that aren't specifically focused on BPD. I've recently been on a stress control course that was open to anyone. (I'm in the UK) and I've learnt some good techniques.
  12. Hi Callisto Have a look in the personality disorders room. Girly
  13. My T used to know I posted on here as peer support was part of my care plan. I doubt that therapists have time to come onto DF and read people's posts.
  14. Hi BPDGirl You are worth time & you are important to me for one. Have you had any therapy for the bpd at all? Is there any available in your area? MBT (mentalization based therapy) and the more well known DBT are both successful for BPD. If there is nothing available where you are there are DBT online sites that could help. Personally I can relate to feeling as though my Dad has never loved me and feeling like an attention seeker. You aren't an attention seeker, just someone with a terrible illness and I think BPD is a terrible illness. But you can learn to live with it and have some peace. Things that can help are a good diet, exercise, meditation, mindfulness, yoga, music. Having a 'happy' box filled with things that can help you when you are struggling. Let us know how you are getting on. Take good care, Girly
  15. Hi BPDGirl I'm sorry I didn't reply to your previous post. I'm out now but wanted you to know I care and I will reply more later. Girly
  16. Great news. Sorry to hear that you have been struggling so much physically. Big hugs.
  17. I have borderline personality disorder and I've taken a mood stabiliser in the past for my anxiety. I took mirtazapine and it worked for about a year if I remember correctly.
  18. Hi Simon Welcome to DF, I'm glad that you have found us here and that you realise talking about your depression will help. I hope to hear more from you. Take good care, Girly
  19. Welcome to you both. You need to have 20 posts before you can enter the live chat. Make yourselves comfortable and reply to a few threads and then you can go in there.
  20. Fizzle has made some great points. You are not alone in this. I have BPD too and I'm not the same as other people. I feel different in social situations. I used to drink and use other negative coping mechanisms all the time. Even now if I go out I feel on edge when it isn't a small group situation. I get paranoid about what my colleagues think of me. You aren't alone in this but you have to be prepared to work incredibly hard to make some progress and move forward with this. It will be tough. In the beginning of my MBT I was told I would get worse before I got better and I did get worse. I was hospitalised for a while in the middle of the therapy BUT it changed my life. I know I'm just going on about my experiences but I want to tell you that it IS possible to get through this.
