Emptiness? I can't read my own emotions.

I've already made a post in this forum recently, but this is about something a bit different.

I don't know for sure whether or not I have BPD, but I do exhibit almost all of the symptoms. I'm prompting any new topics I make with this until I can get a proper diagnosis. I hope my being undiagnosed does not offend anyone. I am just looking for help, I am not looking to wear this ...

Am I in this alone? Can anyone please relate/help me?

Hi everyone.

I have bi-polar (type II) and have been getting support from another on-line forum for that. I recently posted about my relationship difficulties and some of the people on that forum, with BPD, stated that they felt I was displaying BPD traits. Having read the DSMV and ICD10; I have to agree.

I recently wrote down the following and took them to my assessment with a psychotherapist:

My theories on relationships:

If I ...

Unemployed with bpd?

Hi guys. Let me just state first that i have NOT been diagnosed with bpd. However i believe it is what i have as i meet almost all the criteria. I have not seen a psychiatrist for a diagnoses simply because i believe dealing with the "symptoms' is more important then finding out what label is attached to you. I also believe theres too much guess work doing on regarding mental health and getting an ...

Possible TW - Bipolar II Spouse - BPD too?

I posted this in the spouse forum, but thought I might get more responses here. I don't think there's anything triggering, but I put a trigger warning just in case.

My husband of ten years was diagnosed as Bipolar II a little over four years ago. I do think it's an accurate diagnosis because he has had hypomanic episodes (super productive, not sleeping, etc) in the past. He's also been told he's mixed state and ...

What are your "frantic efforts to avoid abandonment"? TW

I'm just curious how this symptom manifests in you all.

This is what I do/have done:

1. After a boyfriend broke up with me, I went to his house and walked in while he was in the shower. (He left the door unlocked.) I sat his bedroom until he got out of the shower and refused to leave. When he tried to kick me out I physically clung to him even though he tried to ...

Feeling helpless, all signs point to BPD, no end in sight.

Trigger warning for self harm and suicide.

Hi, I'm here because I don't know where else to turn. I currently do not have means to see a therapist or get a prescription for medication.

I'll start by saying I'm in my late teens, and I am an adult. Since I entered my teenage years, I've struggled with mental illness. I used to have weekly appointments with a therapist, and I was diagnosed with general anxiety ...
