BPD or not BPD? Confused

I have recently been through a number of crisis's in my life beginning with open heart surgery 12 months ago. Life came crashing down and was a disaster to say the least.
I have always tackled with "depression" and "anxiety" and fueled with high emotions which everyone says is just "my passsion".
I work in the health industry (emergency services as a health professional) so I am faced with patients with mental health issues ...

How would you feel about dating someone with kids?

I'm in my 30s and it seems like a lot of the good single guys are divorced with kids. I never had any. I love my nieces and nephews but if things got serious I'm not sure I would want to help parent someone else's children or, more importantly, deal with a guy's ex constantly being in our lives.

A friend wants to set me up with an "amazing guy" with kids and I'm trying ...

Needing attention

So I'm just back home after an accident where I hit a car on my scooter and went tumbling down a very fast road. My knee is pretty injured but I'm otherwise fine. I haven't cried or anything and part of that is that I'm enjoying the attention when I tell people I've been in an accident. Part of me is glad it happened, and I feel awful about that. I know when I get ...

can't get them out of my mind.

I just need to say stuff.

I can't get my ex or my friends out of my mind. when I see them talking to others, I get flustered and mad. I can't stand how I am. it hurts like ######6 hell to see them talking to each other, but they don't talk to me. it hurts being a selfish little tw@.

and the worst part is the intrusive thoughts. the flipping intrusive thoughts. I go ...

Desperate for direction & some support

Hello everyone! I've been debating on whether or not I am borderline, and am hoping to explore this more in this forum and get some feedback on similar experiences if there are any to who I am, how I behave, how I feel my way through this intricate and interwoven complex world.

Quick history - and I have to lay it all out, even my embarrassing paranoia that may or may not be grounded in ...

Identifying with BPD

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums. Hoping to learn more about living with mental illness and ways of coping. Where do I start?

I have not been diagnosed professionally, but I feel I really self-identify with BPD. When I first began reading into the disorder, all of the symptoms felt like they perfectly described my life, and gave me a starting point to look into things. I have suffered from anxiety issues for roughly ...

staying friends

i don't usually follow this part of the site or post here myself, but this time i think i might benefit from hearing some thoughts from people with bpd themselves, if it's something you guys here would want to talk about (or anyone else who happens to be around, it doesn't have to be exclusive)

i'll keep it short and just go straight to my question: what are your thoughts on staying friends with someone ...

Caught in a trap

Hi, first time poster, new member, new to forums in general….so here goes :P

Brief prelude: I was diagnosed with BPD 2 years ago and it changed the path of the last couple of years from what it had been like before I had heard of BPD. I would describe myself as a high-functioning BP, though I live with chronic illness and that slows me down a ...

Disordered career choices/general interests?

Hi everyone, I was wondering if I could get some help.

It would be nice to know how other people experience the frequent career/interests shift as part of the BPD behaviour fun-ness? It's always confused the hell out of me and no one has been able to explain it to me in a way that makes sense to my brain.
