You know you're BPD when...
« 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.
