You know you're AvPD when...

Postby yYyYy » Thu Feb 28, 2013 2:33 pm

Here's an example...


MissAli wrote:So I came across this website that had a thread posted titled:

You Know You're BPD When...

And I couldn't resist sharing some of my FAVORITE quotes from the site... when I cut and paste, it doesn't give me the ability to put each author on, but I just wanted you all to know that these are not my own lines, but they are pretty freaking funny. I hope it lightens your mood and gives you something to smile about... and identify with (I know that I did...).

Feel free to add your own too... this could be a fun exercise for us!

----------------------------------------------------------------

Your boyfriend doesn't call you when he says he's going to, so you go to his house and break all his windows.

Only, later you find out he was taking a nap.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Someone tells you that you look tired...so you decide you hate their guts.
----------------------------------------------------------------
You just know everyone is plotting againts you just to find out they were. Just not againts me they were giving me an award for all my hard work. I'm sure glad I never go through with my thoughts at work.
----------------------------------------------------------------
You say, "Yes, I'll go (to x, y, z)" and then you "can't" because you broke a dish and your zipper stuck for just a sec and "EVERYTHING IS GOING WRONG and I HATE YOU ALL!"
---------------------------------------------------------------
You said you get out of the meeting by 3:30, and that you'd be home right afterwards!" And you're crying because you just know he's talking to someone who is WAY more interesting than you are and that she's going to seduce him and they'll have sex in the bathroom, and she'll have his baby, and it'll be gorgeous and win the Gerber Baby contest, and he'll just go back to work later anyway, so who f---ing CAREs, and it's 3:40, and the drive is 15 minutes long....
----------------------------------------------------------------
You've made a new friend who is a lawyer. You realize that it's exactly what you are suppose to be doing as well. So, you get all the books to study for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT).

However, the next day your friend calls, who is a nurse, starts to tell you about her day. You start looking into the requirements for nursing school.
---------------------------------------------------------------
You know your BPD when you see something on a home makeover show and you think all you need to do is get a sledge hammer and knock out walls without planning and it's that easy! Then you call your husband asking were the sledge hammer is he starts to panic and say's please don't touch anything I am on my way home, all tools all of a sudden start disappearing???
---------------------------------------------------------------
Your boss doesn't talk to you. It's Monday morning, the first of the month. She is in her office reviewing her hatred of you and writing up the papers to fire you. Finally she will be rid of you!!

Then she stops by your desk with a smile, an offer of coffee, and says "Whew, as if Mondays aren't busy enough, it's Monday and the first of the month! How is your morning going?"
----------------------------------------------------------------
Your roommate is taking a nap and she didn't tell you that she was going to, so you slam around the house to wake her up just so she's ask "Are you ok?" Cause you feel abandoned for no reason at all.....
----------------------------------------------------------------
You know you're borderline when it seems somebody interrupts you every time you sing, so you conclude that God, life, and the universe thinks you have a horrible voice and doesn't want you to sing, and you vow never to sing again.
----------------------------------------------------------------
when: your Therapist says "I think we can start seeing each other every other week, instead of every week. B/c you seem to be doing so well." Only I "KNOW" the reason - you don't want to put up with me and my $#%^ any more and need a break from me! (although MAYBE I am doing a bit better...)
----------------------------------------------------------------
You figure out a nice safe long term plan for yourself:

You divide the day into tasks
You divide the week into accomplishments
You divide the year into goals
...then you break your foot.

(Actually, that really isn't being borderline...it's just bad freaking luck.)
---------------------------------------------------------------
You know you're borderline when your husband gets diagnosed with depression and you think, "He's just trying to steal my thunder" lol
---------------------------------------------------------------
When food always seems to be flying around you. Twice in the car, once I got so mad I threw my big mac at my husband another time I threw a milkshake at him and it exploded all over his clothes and on our windshield.
---------------------------------------------------------------
When you finally figure out how to be normal and in one minute screw it all up.
---------------------------------------------------------------
when you feel out of place. so you go into your house (b/c everyone else is sitting in your lawn), then you get pissed off when your bf doesn't follow you into the house to check on you. When he does you get snippy b/c people are tracking in dog crap and your left to clean it up. He goes out and tells everyone to take off their shoes before going in the house. Then leaves you to clean up. So you get even more pissed that your left in the house. But you don't like fireworks any ways so you'd rather be in the house. But damit why can't someone come see you! AND WHAT ABOUT THE DOG CRAP?

You know you're AvPD when you know there's a better life for you out there, but you can't motivate yourself to try and find it because of fear of more stress and problems relating to other people and you stay cooped up in your house instead.
Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by ignorance. ~Hanlon's Razor abbr.

you're too embarrassed to say you're embarrassed?
I don’t have a full-blown PD.
That doesn't mean I have the opposite of a full-blown PD, if you get my drift.

You live and die alone.



For some reason this isn't as much fun as the BPD equivalent.

- You get an adrenalin rush from making a phone call.
- You are completely anonymous on the internet, yet still care what people think about your opinions.

When you spend 30 minutes building up the courage to ask someone something really simple like "Can I borrow those scissors?"

When you'd rather fantasize about doing something than actually doing it .....
When you'd rather watch TV than hang out w/ friends
you'd rather masturbate than have sex

When you go through conversations in your head and realize all the dumb things you said and wish you kept quiet
When you go through future conversations you might have so that you know what to say

When you're afraid of posting this because someone might say you're wrong or disagree with you or judge you
