Re: Borderline Personality Disorder
Borderline personalities are unable to maintain an authentic self. They have fictive personalities and no ethics. They are extreme liars who cause constant chaos. They are psychotic but not killers. They harm people in ways that can't be prosecuted.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 158584


Exactly.They love to watch people suffer and they feel they are so much more deserving in life than anyone else.They dont care who they hurt and they get their high by watching others have difficulties because after all they are so perfect they cant fail,just all others fail never them.

i have never enjoyed hurting other people. i am constantly having problems because i neglect myself due to my always being so worried about other people and doing things for others. i have never seen myself as perfect, or above others. the total opposite really, i always see myself as not worthy or deserving of good things. all im good at is failing. and i know this and acknowledge it. its hard to feel perfect and deserving when you constantly feel worthless, meaningless, and like you're a waste of space.

Re: Borderline Personality Disorder
Sometimes adults with Aspergers, get diagnosed as BPD. I had some of the diagnostic characteristics, so chose to attend a DBT group. (Very violent, abusive childhood, mistrust of humans, etc.) I went through a year of DBT and it made my life so much better. I learned better ways to deal with life and people...but I was finally diagnosed with Aspergers, instead of BPD. The DBT therapy helps with all sorts of issues. It is helpful though, to have the correct diagnosis.

 Quoting: Anonymous Queen 1486221


Ahhh.... crap... I just spend about 20 minutes composing a reply to this and lost it all.

Okay, I'll just say... I was once best friends with someone with BPD. I was friends with her for 18 years from childhood to adulthood. At a certain point I thought, I've left her behind, when will she catch up? A few years later, I realized, she will never catch up. BPDs have the emotional maturity of about 2 - 4 years. You will end up spending all your mental energy trying to walk the fine line of not upsetting them, and in the end you'll fail anyway. BPDs have no sense of personal responsibility. They are always the victim. From what I've read, it comes from a lack of real bonding in infancy and there's no real way to fix it. (I know my friend had a horrible childhood -- I witnessed it.) Through intensive psychiatric treatment they can learn to manage it but first they have to acknowledge that they need help, something that is almost impossible for a BPD. They are so terrified of and so certain of rejection that they will engineer it for themselves in almost any relationship, and that involves making you the villain.

I wish this weren't so. My BPD former friend has a daughter who has now become a teenager. I fear for her. I miss my friend in some ways as odd as that sounds, but I could never be close to her again.

If you're involved with a BPD, release yourself as gently as you can. You can't fix them and they will end up blaming you for everything that's ever gone wrong for them.

Well, if no one should be friends or involved with someone with BPD, should we just go ahead and lock them all away? Everyone needs friends and loved ones and if we all just arbitrarily threw everyone away who had a flaw or God help them, an insecurity...
BPD is a horrible thing to try and overcome. It takes patience, love and time.
Too bad you don't know as much about friendship as you do BPD. It is possible to manage and in fact overcome if you have the right tools.

If you have or if someone you love has BPD I feel for you. I don't have answers for you. I'm sure it's a living hell. I lost my long, detailed post and am not gonna retype it; suffice it to say I spent many years trying to help my friend, and couldn't. The best way I can describe it is that I felt she was taking blood from me on a daily basis and never donating any herself.

I loved her, and I miss her in many ways. I hope she finds healing. I hope you do too if you need it. But I can't ever go back there and I can't advise anyone else to, either. I was left mentally and emotionally exhausted by her unending demands. I don't blame her; I blame her parents. In the end, though, no matter who was to blame, I just couldn't do it any more. She drained me. That's the truth of the matter and even if it offends you, I can't change it.

That poster made some very sensitive remarks and is in pain, so I find your remarks callous.

BPD is not just a "flaw" or "insecurity," it is a MAJOR psychiatric disorder.

Yes, it takes "patience, love, and time" to overcome. And I have YET to meet someone with BPD whom I "love" enough to invest the patience and the time. Maybe that's because our relationship never got that far because they went completely wacko on me early on and began destroying (literally --- as in material items) things, including our "friendship."

If YOU choose to invest your patience and time into someone with BPD and set yourself up for the inevitable heartache, by all means go ahead. But I CHOOSE not to with good reason -- based on past experience.

Unlike people with OTHER psych disorders like depression, BPDs NEVER stay on their damned medications! They CHOOSE to go off their lithium so they can DRINK and DO DRUGS, and that's usually when the every-weekend baseball-bat-to-the-trunk windshield, destroying-his-apartment-with-a-lead-pipe, getting-hauled-off-by-the-cops, in-and-out-of-the-psych-ward, stealing-your-money-and-disappearing crazy wacko bullshit begins.

That is TOO MUCH DRAMA for me. If you WANT that kind of wacko drama in your life, then be my guest.

Well, to be fair lots of people with Bipolar Disorder go off their meds. I knew a guy like that. He loved the high so much he was willing to ruin his business, stroke rattlesnakes to commune with God (yes, really) and trash all his relationships. He called me in the middle of the night to tell me the Mafia was going to kill my mother.

I have no idea where he is now. Last I heard he was homeless and didn't want to be helped.

Gawd.... sometimes I curse my brain for giving me run of the mill depression. Then I recall stuff like this, and all I've read about schizophrenia, and am so incredibly thankful that I can at least discern what's real and what's not (at least most of the time).

First of all, BPD patients don't need medication, that's Bipolar Disorder, which is something completely different. Second, it sounds like you have boundary issues. Thirdly, I was misdiagnosed with both Bipolar and BPD for a few years so I was not meaning to sound callous. I was coming from a place of understanding both sides of the story.

That said, yes, they can be self- destructive, overdramatic and taxing. I've spent the past three years of my life in intensive therapy getting to a place where I feel that I can actually be a decent, stable and good friend to others. I wouldn't have gotten to this point had it not been for my friends. My family all deserted me.

I hated feeling like a victim and I refuse to ever go back to that place. I'm just saying that maybe you just had a really bad experience with someone who had it. I'm sorry that it was such a difficult friendship.

Re: Borderline Personality Disorder
I hope this will help. i am a peer to peer mentor and teach a class about mental illness for NAMI..All the latest meterial is The illness is characterized by intense and stormy relationships, low self esteem, self-sabotaging acts,mood fluctuations and impulsitivity.A common feature of BPD is severe difficulty managing emotions UNDER STRESS.
this is a list of symptoms
frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment
A pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships
Identity disturbances
Impulsivity in at least two areas that are self-damaging
Recurrent Suicidal behaviorgestures,treats,orself-mutilating
Mood instability
etc..
(note) People with BPD ONLY have paranoid thinking under severe stress and do not have this kind of symptom on a relular basis.
Dissociative symptoms are when a person's consciousness splits off(i.e. a trauma survivor driving dowm a one-way streetwithout realizing it)
Medication coupled with therapy often lead to inprovement.
also the information i have given is not a recomendation nor an oppinion it is educational information for you to use as you choose

Re: Borderline Personality Disorder
I have/had this disorder.
I say have because it is a matter of brain function and how the literal brain is formed, but can be made worse with the right (or wrong) environmental factors (nature/nurture).

I say had because once I woke up (activated, whatever you'd like to call it) I ceased to exhibit all of the personality traits that come along with this.

alot of people go by text book definitions when really there are just as many variables as there are people.

what exactly would you like to know?

Re: Borderline Personality Disorder
It is a tough one. In my experience cure is impossible because the patients do not believe they are in the wrong. It is everyone else causing their problems and who are out to get them. They can not, will not see that they need help. Good luck with that one. IMHO it is one of the most difficult.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 149882


its not that we don't feel we are wrong we just realize there is no right or wrong just means/end.
we cant connect or experience emotions the same way an empath could, so while you think we are sharing an connecting moment its just a hug to me.

there are very severe cases, such as those with impulsive criminal acts but just like everyone else there are those who are intelligent enough to understand petty crimes wont put them in a situation of power or control which is a must for socios

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 158584


If you knew what we were really thinking you would cry. These thoughts present themselves as naturally to us as your thoughts do to empaths. I use this term meaning you can feel emotions regularly not the ESP empath.

The masks most socios wear are learned from early age as survival mechanisms not deceptive ones.
Young 'regular' children can just as brutal as any socio, and if you are not deemed 'normal' you can be outcasted, so the masks we wear not only guarantee that we will fit in, but socios at there best behavior are EXACTLY what the target subject need them to be, they are very perceptive and can spot 'weakness' in almost anyone they are 'hunting' and project back to the victim what it is they think they need.

it starts as survival and then for the most part the adult socio comes to terms with who they are and accepts that they are really good at being bad.

its just the card they are dealt, like the sharks in the ocean.

as far as chaos goes, again, its a matter of how intelligent the socio is.
and yes they cause extreme emotional pain, but some people use this catalyst to wake up!!

I would love to know more about this as there are reasons of great importance to my asking.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 183606


absolutely, well known in the profession, they are interchangeable labels depending on the pt's gender

as I said, it is a character disorder, not treatable with medicines, only effective treatment is CONSEQUENCES resulting from their actions.

it is more widespread than most realize, millions of spoiled, entitled brats from the '60s on present with it
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 182008


the consequences resulting from actions will only help to teach the socio to think twice about that particular action, but it will not change the disorder.

honestly, when the heart chakra opens is the day the conscience is born, with is comes compassion and empathy, and that is the only thing that can change a socio, KNOWING WHAT IT FEEL LIKE FOR THE OTHER PERSON AND GIVING A FUCK.

Re: Borderline Personality Disorder
knowing because you are something versus THINKING you know because you read a book about something or met a couple criminally inclined socios are completely different.

psychology will try to define the situation but there is no textbook that can tell you exactly what a socio is thinking or has thought.

most people with opinions have emotional bias due to past experience so there is always a undertone of hatred.

but the truth is that socios can be some of the most charming intelligent witty hunters on the playing field. there are tons of shows that start out with the scorned lover recalling how easily they were swept off their feet, how popular the socio was at his/her best behavior.

I swore that being a socio was a Gift from God, in that ppl with emotions were always hurt over someone leaving them, friend problems, job problems that always left them emotional wrecks even making them commit suicide. and I never felt any of that. I thought socios were the evolution of (hu)man being that intellect vs emotion always produced the same victor.

then I woke up.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3980744:


So, in your (diseased) mind, I misused a medical abbreviation (when in fact I did not), and that equates to "boundary issues?" Armchair diagnose much?

Check it out, whackadoodle: You don't know me. All you know about me are a couple of posts on this forum. You don't even know what kind of mood I'm in. Your educational level is probably no higher than high school. You are not qualified to start drawing conclusions about my "boundaries" or anything else about me.

Thirdly, I was misdiagnosed with both Bipolar and BPD for a few years
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3980744:


Misdiagnosed for YEARS? More likely that diagnosis was CORRECT and SPOT ON.

I've spent the past three years of my life in intensive therapy
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3980744:


Not surprising at all.

My family all deserted me.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3980744:


Gee, I wonder why.

I'm just saying that maybe you just had a really bad experience with someone who had it. I'm sorry that it was such a difficult friendship.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3980744:


No, that is what *I* said. YOU didn't say that, nor did you ask ANY questions about others' experiences, you just starting judging people right out of the box.

You are saying it NOW, but you certainly weren't saying it before. Earlier you implied that those of us who aren't willing to put up with the wacko antics of BPDs (YES, BPD) are heartless.

All my points have been made, and as far as I'm concerned this conversation is over.

Bipolar Disorder is BP (which is a organic brain chemistry disorder), Borderline Personality Disorder is BPD (which is a personality disorder due to environment as an infant/ early childhood), which is what this thread is about. Why don't you read the first post.

And whatever to the rest, your an idiot and have no idea of what I've gone through in my life. My family was unwilling to admit to what had happened to me in my childhood. I viewed that as unsupportive and disowned them, by the way. I have Complex PTSD. That diagnosis is correct and confirmed by six different doctors. I saw one bad psych who diagnosed me based on a reaction that I had to an SSRI. I have never had any symptoms of mania, which is still a completely different subject than what is being discussed here.

You are the one who sounds judgmental...

Re: Borderline Personality Disorder
For best results, stay far, far away from anyone who has BPD. They will make your life a living hell.

You are absolutely correct.Working with a lady with this disorder for 10 years until thankfully she retired made my working life at that time a total living hell........,,,,

Re: Borderline Personality Disorder
My ex partner(thank fuck she's gone) was diagnised BPD. I asked my renowned but wrong Doctor/spiritual master about it & he incorrectly stated that it was "a polite way of telling a person they are on the border of being sane & crazy."

The penny dropped after reading Trance Formation of America, which I think now is actually a fantasy story. I honestly think that BPD is when a person is on the border of being 'normal' & having Multiple Personality Disorder. You know? Like United States of Tara(excellent actress) Make sense?

Re: Borderline Personality Disorder
All right. It's late and I'm about to go to bed but for the record I'm clarifying that when I said BPD I meant Borderline Personality Disorder and not BiPolar Disorder.

Damn that lingo.
