Recently diagnosed with BPD

I'm a 30 year old female from the US that was diagnosed with BPD, yesterday. I've known for quite some time that I have a problem, but it didn't dawn on me until the past few weeks that it may be BPD. It's a bittersweet feeling.

I started my first "big girl job" at a large corporation 7.5 months ago, and I love(d) it. My actual job itself is great, I really enjoy what I ...

Jekyll and Hyde & the concept of personas

I am wondering how many personas BPDs go through? The one I'm observing recently seems to have a Jekyll and Hyde thing going on. In person he seems very gentle, really soft spoken like he wouldn't hurt a fly, almost naive and child like. But I'm wondering if this is the real mask or the fake mask? Because he has told me stories of when he has gotten so enraged, he has physically beaten up ...

Towards a diagnosis

So I saw my counsellor on Tuesday and told her for the first time that I thought I might have BPD. I had written down a long list of things, which I went through. She asked questions. At the end she said she needs another session to evaluate, but that some things I said indicated a personality disorder and some didn't. If she concludes I might have it, she'll ask the doctor to do a ...

Should non-BPD spouse spend time with friends?

My husband and I have been married almost 15 years (happily). I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder about 16 years ago, but have been fine with only the occasional out-of-the-blue outburst when I'm stressed.

My husband has recently started playing Dungeons and Dragons. He spends about 4 -7 hours away from home each time, depending on whether he goes out for a meal before with his new friends. At first this took place on ...

My latest diagnosis

I swear. Every time I see a new therapist, I end up with a new diagnosis. The latest label they've stuck me with is Borderline Personality Disorder. Interestingly, this was the first I'd heard of it, so I did a little research into the subject. Apparently, my therapist felt that I have trouble with relationships and I fear abandonment. I'm trying to figure out where she got that, since I've been in a committed relationship ...

dealing with sensitive emotions in a new friendship?

Hi, I've recently made a new friend at an event. I haven't made any new ones since recently being diagnosed with BPD (I'm 19) and for the first time seeing my own habits, actions, emotions etc. after having it affect my life for years (I was abused by my mother throughout my youth, who also has BPD, depression, and anxiety like me).
I'm currently in CBT/DBT, I started about a month ago, but I came ...

Extreme anger/emotional storms

The thing that troubles me the most about how my illness manifests is the extreme anger. Other people really can't do anything right when I'm caught up in this. I am just overcome by so much emotion all at once that I stop being able to reason properly. I stop being able to think. I make negative snap judgements and become so adamant in them that it can be a matter of days, weeks, or ...
