My BPDexgf birthday's coming up - to congratulate or not?

Next week is her birthday. I don’t know whether to congratulate or not.
I got the final discard by the end of July („Leave me alone finally“, after I set some boundaries and hinted that we maybe should stop the friendship because we are hurting each other). Reached out two times in between six weeks of NC ...

feeling disconnected from everyone else

I've been going to an outpatient mental health support group...and I've been sitting there the past couple of groups feeling so disconnected from everyone else in the group. I feel like an outcast even among others with mental illness. I suffer from bipolar disorder as well, so I can relate to them as far as that goes... but not with anything else, as far as daily living and emotions. I feel like this no matter ...

I'm a recovered borderline

I hope that this is a right place for me and that I'm welcome here. First I would like to say that English is not my first language so I would like to excuse myself for all the spelling errors I may make.

Why I'm here? I haven't 'google'd' or read about BPD for a long time because it isn't an issue for me anymore. Just recently after I did sore reading about the subject ...

bpd and gender stereotypes

Do you find that you are a bit more like the opposite sex than your friends, ie female in to video games. Male in to appearance?

Apparently the fear of abandonment plays in to being desperate to the point of subconsciously wanting to become the person you are attracted to wanting to get under their skin and being them and part of that is taking on elements of the opposite sex that your friends would ...

Newbie with questions

Hi Everyone!

So after a long long time of wondering what was wrong with me at 25 I have finally been diagnosed with BPD. This as you all know is a bit of a double-edged sword, and I am both relieved and saddened at the same time. My main issues lie in abandonment, impulsivity, rejection - perceived or actual and obsessive attachment/communication issues. I was wondering if any of you guys have any advice on ...

My stepsister is obsessed with her (ex) husband

My stepsister filed for divorce from her husband over a year ago but she is clearly obsessed with him.

Every family gathering she talks about him nonstop. Obsessing and analyzing over every detail of their interaction. Its highly inappropriate for our family meetings. We should be happy, lighthearted, but she starts in on the man she filed from divorce from, starts crying, and can't stop obsessing and talking about him for hours.

I'm sure its ...

What does recovery look like?

In our community, we talk about recovery...a lot. And it means different things for different people. A lot of people do therapy and DBT, etc, but I think that personal experience plays a huge role in recovery as well. Self actualization, if you will.

For those who are legitimately in recovery and have seen some monumental progress and improvement in your lives and relationships, what steps did you have to take to get there? What ...

Burning bridges, rebuliding

While I'm not a raging borderline, I'm not a quiet borderline, either. I have emotional outbursts. I overreact. I get paranoid. I have distorted thinking patterns. I am draining and needy. It's easy to hide these things from people for a long time (I can pretend to be normal for quite awhile), but eventually it comes out. I push people away. I've lost a lot of friends over the past year or so because of ...

Haunted by my Friend's Death *Trigger Warning*

My friend had a psychology and a law degree. She was brilliant. She also had Borderline Personality Disorder, just like me.
She took her own life earlier this month. I wish I could say it came as a shock to me, but it didn't.
She was 20 years older than me. Her family had a lot of money, so she got the best mental health care a person can buy. but still, her BPD got ...
