Personality Disorder Message Board

Well, the first thing I will say to you, is never allow yourself to get caught up in labels. You were diagnosed with BPD, but it doesn't have to rule your life, nor does it have to define who you are. With that said, I was diagnosed with BPD some years ago.

I'm not sure what you mean about a block, but at times I feel totally unmotivated to do something. If I want to do something, I usually do unless there is some physical reason why I can't.

My symptoms of BPD were severe mood swings(literally happy one minute, sad the next), anger issues (had a LOT of difficulty controlling my temper), manipulative behaviors (such as trying to make others feel quilty because they wouldn't do what I wanted), difficulty expresing my emotions, difficulty making and maintaining friendships, difficulty maintaining relationships( because I tend to isolate and purposely push others away, but I've been with my husband for 13 years now, and married for 12 so don't let anyone convince you that just because you are BPD, you will never have a stable relationship, because you CAN have a stable relationship with the right person). Oh and a host of other symptoms, this is just scratching the surface.

You have to learn ways to take control of your condition and not let it control you. This takes time, but it is NOT impossible. Took me many years to learn how to deal with it, and it's something that I struggle with daily, but it doesn't consume my life on the level that it once did. Just take it one day at a time.

My best friend also has BPD, and she is having a very difficult time at the moment. So everyone is different when it comes to this condition, and how they choose to handle it is up to them.
