| | Re: Wife has BPD, I am going crazy
Okay, first let me tell you that you are not alone. My STBXW does the same thing and she is sexually impulsive to boot. The symptoms you describe, even the suicidal thoughts/gestures/attempts, are things my STBXW did. You must know that you cannot control her behavior or "fix" her. People with BPD will be broken for life. Some get better with therapy but the prognosis long term is not good. Mine actually swallowed the pills (8 klonopin and several pain killers). She made herself vomit before the ambulance got there. She was taken to the hospital and released WITH NO TIME SPENT IN A PSYCH WARD! Got to love the system.
BPD has to do with issues from childhood. You don't talk about her childhood but I bet it is not good. My STBXW went through her parents divorce at 5 and a custody battle with mom and dad not getting along at all. There are some other issues in there as well.
My STBXW has been with 10 guys since January of this year. Each time it is "the one" and then it falls apart a couple of weeks later. She's got a "boyfriend" (we are still married) that she's broke up with 3 times and cheated on once already. I can't wait for the year to be up so I can divorce her legally.
