What symptoms do you or do you not experience?

Postby sicksadgrrrl » Thu Dec 27, 2018 2:22 am

I'm thinking of talking to my therapist about bpd because I experience most symptoms but I read that fear of abandonment, unstable romantic relationships, black and white thinking, and reckless behaviors are a major part of it but I've never been in any romantic relationships to experience instability, I push everyone away and I'm not close to anyone so I definitely don't have fear of abandonment or black and white thinking. I also don't do reckless things often (I don't have the money or opportunity to) plus my anxiety stops me most of the time but everything else is spot on. I think i have 5 or 6 out of the 9 symptoms. I just want to know if any of you with bpd don't experience all the symptoms?

Only ones I don't are self harm and I'm not too concerned with my "identity" and most people's ideas of identity are bull $#%^ anyway. The things I struggle with the most are impulse control, mood swings, suicidal ideation, and abandonment. I used to "split" more frequently but now I'm more self aware. My relationships are rocky rides but I've had a lot of the same friends for over a decade so people must like riding my rollercoaster.

I'm not self-diagnosing?? In no way am I saying I have this disorder. People experience symptoms and I'm wondering what people with this disorder experience and don't experience. I literally said I'm going to go to my therapist about it and trying to identify if whatever symptoms I experience would even be associated in the first place.
