How am I supposed to deal with this?

so I'm in a long-distance relationship and a few days ago we discussed whether or not this has a future. She told me she has concerns that she may cheat on me at some point (a situation where she may lose control over herself). She has strong urges, loves to have sex and likes flirting. She's been doing some flirting on various social-media-sites, I mentioned to her that it bothers me.

I have an ...

How do people cope with copycats? That is people who are 'stealing' their likes or tastes or whatever. I love (and live for) nail art, tattoos and piercings. My 21 year old stepdaughter has decided she does too. She wants the piercings I want but can't get (industrial, she already has a Tragus which I'm dying for), she wants tattoos in places I do or have. She's just stopped get her nails done professionally, wants ...

Growing Impatient With Life

You know, it gets so mentally and physically tiring to be in constant turmoil.

I wake up with a lack of a sense of drive, a lack of any positive emotion, what feels like a lack of personality. Whenever possible I smoke cannabis upon first waking up, just for the sheer fact that I can have a "good morning".

After I am bored of smoking, and tired of being lonely and stuck in my own ...

Feeling abandoned by my pdoc

I've written before about my disdain for psychiatrists. Why? Well, in a nutshell, my psychiatrist and I terminated while I was in a very bad state of mind and feeling panic. It was my decision but again, I was panicking and well, I didn't have a final session with him...just a phone call that lasted maybe ten minutes.

Since terminating I've had to process it all and the hurt feelings with it.

It's just hurtful ...

For the 1st time in my life, I don't feel completely alone.

Hi guys. I'm brand new to the site and to borderline forums in general. I was diagnosed about 15 yrs ago, but kept the diagnosis from friends, family, coworkers & even my husband until last yr. My life has been pure hell at times...especially now that I have two teenagers diagnosed with it as well.

I don't know what other non BPD people think when they land on this forum, but I personally have enjoyed ...

How to build yourself

I don't have a borderline diagnosis and I relate more to traits NPD, ASPD and SPD but.. I do have a fear of abandonment and no sense of self. So I thought I'd probably get some tips here.

Throughout the day I like to constantly text with my partner. But he has his own life and really wants his space. He's happy with a few texts a day and we see each other in the ...

Ready to take my bow and leave the stage

I am exhausted, both physically, mentally, and emotionally. I am so tired of putting on the "act" around people, even those I am closest to. I am a merger, a mirrorer; I lose my identity in others and become what they want, what they like, what they feel. today I just want to be myself...if I can figure out who that really is. it takes so much energy to invest in people at times and ...

Is it fair to be in a relationship when I have BPD?

I was diagnosed with BPD about 5 months ago and after researching it I realised discovered that those who are partners of people with BPD describe how horrible it is.

I've been in a relationship for a little while now and I have really strong feelings for this guy but I feel so unfair that I'm keeping my illness from him, doesn't he have a right to know? But I feel that if he knows, ...

Telling Your Loved Ones

Hi Everyone,

I'm newly diagnosed: Borderline Personality Disorder, Major Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder.

I'm wondering if any of you are willing to share some wisdom about how I can tell my family and friends, and teach them about my mental health conditions. Any success stories? Things to avoid? Good resources/reading material?

Thanks in advance!
