Re: I think I'm Borderline -Sad and confused

Hi D,

I suffer from BPD and have done since I was 12 even though I was only diagnosed with it in November last year. BPD isn't easy to diagnose or fast to diagnose either it is all about your history over a year that is really looked into for the diagnosis.

Have you visited any doctor about this in the past?

Although self diagnosis can sometimes be helpful BPD is quiet simular to Bi-PD (Bipolar Disorder) which makes it hard to diagnose quickly.

I suggest you go and explain this to your doctor and if your like me and have a memory like a goldfish just print out the page and take it with you for them to read it. The earlier you go to get professional help the quicker they can get to the bottom for you.

I am (as you can see from my signature) on mood stablizers and ADs and TBH they are so much of a help. I still have the odd episode but the tablets make it easier to cope with and prevent.

I hope I dont sound too waffling for you.

All the best
