I can only imagine the intensity of that. Unpleasant I'm sure.


My little brother died on April 18, 2015 after losing the fight to cancer. Please help me be able to bury him. My parents do not have the means to do so. http://www.gofundme.com/sd4ch9bk

My H knows that feeling well. I was like that for years..not sure why he stayed. He said he stayed because he hoped the "real me" would come back. Slowly but surely I've making progress to normalcy.

If I had to pick a most dreaded part of being a bpd'er,the inability to feel the feelings in between love and hate would be the most dreaded.

I couldn't just dislike a part of someone,I had to dislike the ENTIRE someone. Then love them intensely the next day

Every now and then I'll catch myself doing it and it sucks.That's when I have to sit the person down and explain myself to them,hoping they'll understand and work with me.

Pidge i am wondering if you could enlighten me as to how pre menopause can affect BPD symptoms. My stbxw seems to have gone way off the reservation. I stayed for 13 years hoping something would change..it did and not for the better. 5 mos since she asked for D and it has ben a roller coaster. Would love it if you'd take a look at my thread in div/sep and give me your insight.

Thanks so much and congrats on your recovery, from what Ive seen it is rare. kudos to you.

I had my BPD symptoms under control (for the most part) and then I hit peri menopause. Then suddenly none of my usual coping methods worked. I was losing 2-3 weeks a month to bad moods, moodiness, and anger. I was smart enough not to take my moods out on my husband but it was HARD.

I've read women like me will struggle more with menopause. I sought help with hormone therapy and I'm all better now.

I am 42 now and perimenopausal. I feel I am doing better now than I was before. I was diagnosed when I was 34 as a BPD'er. I was a horrible person before that and after until I hit rock bottom 2yrs ago. I am by no means "normal" yet but, I am doing all I can to reach some semblance of normalcy.

Thanks for the congrats and kudos.....I'm not fully recovered but, I am "Almostrecovered".
