Re: Meds and BPD
May 14, 2014
Hi there Match28! Thanks for replying to my thread!! I can relate to the reasons why you ended up in hospital - for me it was the same, but my method wasn't tablets! I have to be careful what I say on here, as I was pulled on it once already, and I'm only new, so I'm only learning about what I can and can't say without being blocked by the site administration. At least you have your diagnosis now, which helps you to know what you're dealing with.

Considering what happened to you, I am surprised you were not put on any medication to stabilise your mood, at least for awhile anyway after your overdose!! I find the therapy very important and I go for one-on-one therapy once a week rather than group. If I'm offered group down the line, then I'll take it, but as long as I have some kind of therapy, along with my meds, I'm happy for now. It can be hard to find a therapist that you can work well with, so I do hope you have found some appropriate support. Maybe group is not for you at the moment and has nothing to do with you feeling you don't connect as a gay man with BPD. Lots of men do suffer with BPD too, but there are a few different categories of BPD, and men and women don't always fit the same ones, so despite being gay, you can rest assured that there are many men out there with the disorder.

I find stress and anxiety obviously makes the condition worse - well for me anyway. Currently, I cannot seem to get away from problems - financial and otherwise, which seem to prevent me from managing my symptoms when the stress levels are constant! Here's hoping things improve for both of us! BTW, I also held down a career in a very stressful job with a lot of responsibility for years, so I agree it's quite amazing how we can hold it all together somewhat at work, and seem to totally unravel in our personal lives. I don't know how my lot at home stick me to be honest! Great to hear from you. Keep in touch - I'd love to hear from you!!!!
