Does this sound like Quiet BPD?

Hi
I am a 38 year old male. My life hasn't gone the way I would have expected it to go by my age. For a number of years I have been trying to heal and understand what's been 'my problem'. I have had therapy for years and tried many different things like years of meditation (which has helped) among other things. But there is still something I can't seem to shake.

I have recently ...

Am I on the Edge of an Episode?

My temper lately has been off the charts. I am in a horrible mood. I could just strike a match to the whole thing and never look back. I could just kill people with my eyes. I don't know what is wrong with me. Could I be on the edge of some sort of episode? The has been going on for over a week now. Any insight?

My story *TRIGGER WARNING*

Last year I was diagnosed with Bipolar I disorder with signs of psychosis. How I found out is that at 41 years of age, I started hearing voices.
At first these voices were supportive. I had been praying a lot and the voice came to me as Jesus reminding me of all my great gifts. Telling me I was a fantastic actress, why don’t I act anymore? Reminding me that I used to love to ...

Husband dealing with a BP wife who wants a divorce

I got blindsided by text messages on Nye saying she doesn't want to be with me anymore and she isn't in love with me. This just after we bought a house 2 months prior. I continued to get text bombs at work every day asking for a divorce.I finally got her to go to couples therapy twice where she's confessed to sleeping with people on and off through our 4 year marriage. This was registering ...

have you meds stopped working?

Has anyone been on a med for a long time and then had it stop working? I've been on the same meds for 8 years (lithium is relatively new for me and we're still getting it into therapeutic range).

But the other two: Abilify and Lamictal, I've taken for 7 years. I remember them both pulling me out of mood swings and mania, but now its like they're doing nothing at all. I have had ...

Thoughts on stigma

I just got off the phone w my Mom because I wanted to know if I have any family history of brain imbalances/mental illness. She said "No and don't you dare put ME in that category."
I was then thinking of how when someone is diagnosed with cancer or diabetes etc that people are more apt to show empathy and compassion compared to a mental illness. It might be because of the way it manifests ...

Onset of mania when starting anti-depressant &/or Rexalti?

Hello,
I saw a new doctor last week for help with symptoms of depression after trying to wean myself off of Cymbalta because I didn't have health insurance. He said he thinks I have Major Depression and PTSD and started me back on Cymbalta 60mg plus Rexalti 0.5mg. I was previously diagnosed w Bipolar II but this new dr thinks my episode years ago wasn't mania but was situational in nature as I had a ...

Secretly Bipolar?

Hello all!

I’ve been stable for the past 2 years no episodes (I couldn’t be more thrilled thanks to my Latuda and very strict lifestyle).
The people who have met me in the past 2 years or didn’t know me very well when I was cycling like crazy have no idea about the life I used to live. In and out of the psych ward, psychosis, self harm, half way house,, etc)
I feel like ...

Advice

Hey guys.

So for 12 years I have taken medication for depression/anxiety. On top of it have occasionally had treatment for ADD.

An stressful event happened to me about 7 months ago. In addition I graduated from a two year program and started a new job. Unfortunately I haven't stayed in great touch with friends from either last job or school. Only a couple friends and just occasionally.

So between being with friends less and ...
