Here and Now Room / Re: BPD?

Hi

Do you know your psychiatrist pretty well?

I mentioned it to one I had about 8 years ago and he said I did have some traits but didn't want to label me.

This year, my current psychiatrist got me in with a psychologist and it was him who spotted that I tick most of the boxes. It helped that he himself teaches DBT (dialectic behavioural therapy) so it was his field. He referred me for DBT and I've just started it.

I would look at the signs and write down which ones you identify with and think of examples of how it fits. You can then use that as a starter for 10.

Good luck with it and let us know how you get on

Just tell them you have read up on it and you identify with a lot of what is said and you wondered if it was something you had.

Here and Now Room / BPD?

I have had depression and anxiety on and off for most of my life but I read something and now am wondering if I actually have borderline personality disorder but how do I approach that with professionals? Iíve just had another referral to the psychiatrist for the third time and wonder if I can ask about that?

I think chances are my cause of death will be suicide. I need to think it through properly. Put plans in place, but it’s scary. I don’t know how to do this.

I see my recovery worker tomorrow afternoon and then my CPN and psych on Wednesday. I’ll say all this stuff to them, but I don’t feel it will change anything.
Please make sure that you do - without glossing over anything. These thoughts don't help you, they work against you.  :hug2:

**TRIG Sui, death**

Iíve still got this feeling that I am nearing the end of my life. Now my holiday is over Iím left wondering how many more things I have left to experience. Will I be here for Christmas? How many more times will I see my family? Friends?

Iím scared of what the actual end will be like. Will it be scary? Painful? Will I go quickly?

I think chances are my cause of death will be suicide. I need to think it through properly. Put plans in place, but itís scary. I donít know how to do this.

I find the pa a bit invasive when she asks questions. I keep deflecting her with I'm fine, but then she goes around it and asks more questions. I do have a different pa that I trust a bit more and am more willing to talk to. I can find storylines quite triggering at times.

It sounds like the story was meant to raise awareness about the lack of understanding around mental health. Trouble is, these stories can be a bit too close to home sometimes. I remember years ago (I haven't watched it since 2005/2006 ish) there was a self harm story and another one where someone OD'd that I found triggering so I do know how upsetting it can be. I guess it's something that we learn to deal with, I wouldn't want the media to avoid these issues to avoid triggering people but maybe a warning would have been good ::-\: .

It's good that you are coping better today. Maybe you can just keep chatting to your PA but explain that you don't want any intervention but just a chat incase things do get bad without you realising it? There's no harm in that, lots of people talk to friends etc about their feelings but it doesn't mean they're not independent but they're being responsible.  When is the next time you see anyone?
