Re: Are you down with the BPD?

I always used to wonder just how bad it would be, getting kicked in the junk by Jamie Sommers.

Are you down with the BPD?

I got the bionic eye and it didn't cost $6M. That is, 50/20 distance vision for $250 per eye. Not bad. Beat that Jaime or Steve

Can't kick to save my life tho.

Re: Are you down with the BPD?

The more I think about it, the more I envy the BPD'ers who aren't self aware. I'm tired of the neverending guilt that is my life. I'm putting my BPD shroud back on.

Sorry.

I think I'm afraid to be happy. Because whenever I get to happy, something bad always happens.

Those with cluster B have no issue with seeing it in others. The issue is a lack of self awareness. I can listen to my dad go on and on about my sister, unable to see his issues. My sis can do the same about him. They both tell tales stretching the truth beyond believable. At first I thought they were insulting my intelligence, then I realized they believed what they were saying.

To directly answer: grandfather is definitely NPD, dad is probably NPD, sis is definitely BPD. None diagnosed, but geez, no doubt in my mind.

I would suggest testing. I suspected Asperger's in my son but it is not. He's got a processing disorder where he sometimes does not understand and gets stuck in a loop arguing his version of what he heard.

Re: Are you down with the BPD?

I have BPD. I was diagnosed with it after I nearly got myself killed doing something impossibly stupid that I REALLY don't want to talk about, and then upon realizing how reckless I'd been, wanted to kill myself. I went into the hospital 2 years ago and was diagnosed with BPD immediately upon release.

I haven't had an episode like that in a while. I don't tend to put others in harm's way. I have an on-and-off relationship with mild self-harm and an eating disorder, but that's about it. No broken lamps, no drugs, no threats of suicide, no rampant sex, nothing like that. What it does to me most of the time is bring me into a severe cant-get-out-of-bed depression in a matter of moments, and make me worry intensely that my husband has fallen out of love with me. I never act on my worry except to occasionally ask him, "Hey, you still love me right?"

I absolutely hate the stereotype that all people with BPD are totally unmanageable psychopaths who will rip your heart out through your spine and burn your house down. I try my best never to hurt my husband, and 99.9% of the time, I don't. And when I do I apologize and try to make up for it. And actually, 99% of the time, when I think I've hurt my husband, it turns out it's my own fear and he's fine.
