Title: You know you're BPD when...
Post by: Sian-May on April 22, 2014, 04:05:29 PM
I've been reading this thread for a while now but thought I'd share it with fellow BPD sufferers because some of it is hilarious and I'm sure a lot of people can relate to it.

Just a warning that there are some comments involving suicide.

I know!! It's scary how many of them I relate to. I like how it's done in a jokey kind of way though.

This one made me laugh - it's me to a tee!!

"You go on a dating website just to get some attention after a break up to feel better about yourself and youre shopping through various candidates and they all have written that theyre "extremely positive and happy people" and "love to do something new everyday" and then you think to yourself F**K how hard is it to find someone just a little bit miserable so I don't look so bad"

Just saw this and can so relate.  You know you are borderline when you get a 6.62% payrise on the Monday and on the Thursday e-mail the employment partner at work "Are you sacking me today?"  Sadly I did that last week.  :no:

Oh dear, congrats on the pay rise though!

You know you're BPD when your boyfriend say's he'll be over soon then doesn't turn up so you ignore his calls for 2 days and make him seriously worry, then finally answer one shouting at him to leave you the f alone. Then feel guilty later and ask for him to come over for a cuddle.

That was a weekly thing! I put Lewis though a lot of crap!

There was one on there about how a boss or someone at work asks if they can have a quiet word with you later and you spend all day panicking about what it could be, worrying you're going to get fired so start editing your CV and preparing a goodbye speech when all they want is to ask if you can cover someone's shift. I do that all the time!!

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...)

^^^ this one is me to a tee!! I've done it every time ::)

Haha I know what you mean, I always jump to stupid conclusions about things and convince myself that everyone hates me and doesn't want to spend any time with me!

Oh the joys of BPD  ::)

You know you're BPD when loads of little bad things happen to mess up your day and you're convinced that the world just doesn't want you to have a good day and everyone's out to get you!

I find professionals to be very contradictory!

You know you have BPD when you laugh hysterically for a minute before sobbing your eyes out.

All that did was give me yet more confirmation that I have been misdiagnosed - can't get anyone to have another look and go with what I think it may be

Misdiagnosed in what way Hayley? That you have BPD or that you don't?
Title: Re: You know you're BPD when...
Post by: hayley on April 28, 2014, 01:00:41 AM
Not having BPD.  Recently discovered that there is a lot of emotional issues attached to dyspraxia whereas before I thought it was only physical stuff. Has also been hinted that I may be a little bit aspergers

You know you're BPD when you're so angry and hate someone then a few hours later all is forgiven and you're singing along to the radio

You knlw you have BPD when a girl from your dbt group, who you actually like, announces that her 1:1 is the same as yours and then you hate her! And on top of that, you definately know you have bpd when you actually hate your therapist, but dont want to share her!

You know you have BPD when you wake up feeling hyper and have a bounce in your step, then you feel like you're about cry and breakdown and want to cut, then you're hyper, then you keep crying and want to cut again!

Agh I hate BPD and the stupid mood swings!!!

This is just brilliant. The one about being late home so my bf will be with someone else... that's exactly how I think and it's just ridiculous!! And I swear I've started so many courses where I've seen it on the TV and I'm like "oooh an archaeologist. That's what I want to be!" And then a week later it changes haha  ::)

This thread is making me question if they were ever right with my dx...it feel better now that it is mentioned as 'with features of'. It feels weird to not be able to relate to this stuff
Title: Re: You know you're BPD when...
Post by: Sian-May on May 15, 2014, 02:01:33 PM
Maybe they misdiagnosed you like how Hayley thinks she has been too. Might be worth talking about it with someone from your CMHT team

So, they decided ASD rather than PD...better late than never eh...Hayley did you ever follow up the Asperger's comment?
