I hope my questions aren't offensive to anyone suffering to HPD. At what point did realize that you had HPD? Or rather, if you're seeking treatment for HPD, what brought you to treatment?

My Psychatrist told me after we went through my bio. Evaluation: positive. Treatment: I have other issues to adress first. It is no catastrophy to be histrionic in my favorite milieu.

I've been in therapy for over a year and a half. I am committed to it, and proud to say I'm a perfect-attendance pupil :0).

Actually, what brought me to treatment in the first place, overall, was a complete nervous breakdown after my divorce and financial issues we had been having. I had no idea about HPD/BPD, as I am both.

I was being treated for it, but did not know my diagnosis until I found these forum boards, and brought in a wikipedia article, highlighted with applicable things, to my therapist, and she asked how I felt about being part of the PD family. As a hybrid/co-morbid, LOL.

I actually took it quite well, because I finally felt like I fit in somewhere. Never in my life did I really feel that other people around me were "like" me, and that I just was more impulsive, or whatever than they were, but I knew something was wrong.

I just now, am WAY better equipped to deal with it. I work on it every day.

My question to diagnosed HPD sufferers is this:
What reading would / could you recomend to those who are afflicted?
In your recovery, are there common books like my A.A. 12 step? A starting point you may have been directed toward?

I'll have some books to return to my troubled HPD, after many weeks of NC, I would like to slip in a book or two that may answer some questions for them, in the same way I was enlightened on my own issues. A final caring gesture toward this kind heart but disturbed character?
Please, only the very best and most helpful reading on personal devellopment that you may have found essential or instrumental in your own recovery. Thanks for your input.

Thumbs up, masquerade, I have bought Games People Play last week. It is ment to be popular, directed at the general public, not just HPDs. IMO it is important to realize that HPDs are not from outer space!

Well, I'm HPD, and woke up all groggy this morning,wondering what planet I'd come from lol ! Personality disorders are just exagerated traits that we all have, and even within the context of a personality disorder, they're not always to the forefront. They can appear more strongly during times of stress or emotional pain, and I'd hazard a guess that there are lots of undiagnosed people out there too. We all go into states of critical parent/nurturing parent/adult/adapted child/free child every day in our day to day lives. With PDs the states are exagerated at times.

Today, I woke up and said to myself... ITS THE FREAKIN' WEEKEND!!! YAY!!!

However, I received a 3Am call last night from a guy I'd been talking to, but disappeared off the earth. I secretly figured that this is only going to end badly, but I'm going to proceed with it anyways... lunch with him today :0).

I need to read those books... maybe it will keep the impulsiveness to a dull roar.

Sorry.
