... How strange. My daughter has bpd and rather than dropping friends she smothers them. She "drops in on" these people each day to the point that some have told her, "you come over too much. ... (23 replies)
... I can relate so much to everyone's stories on here. I have never been able to keep friends. The friends I usually do make are battling very similar demons, and the friendships are intense for a while, and then turn non existent. ... (23 replies)

... What is an example of "smothering people" and "getting too close too fast"? What does that mean? Other people have left you for no apparent reason. Hmmm maybe they are borderline? They felt you were terrible because you said one or two things that they disliked. (23 replies)

... I have bpd and I do the same thing. The interesting thing is that two of my friends also have bpd so it's like a battle between the three of us. One will talk to me for two weeks straight online and then disappear for a month. ... (23 replies)
... When you say it is not intentional, do you MEAN to keep in touch with them, but just forget, are busy with other things etc? Or do you deliberately stop getting in touch with them because you are afraid they are getting close? Because if it's the first one (you want to stay in touch but forget or are busy) it's not particularly typical of BPD but the second one, while you... (23 replies)
... OK I am having some problems dealing with a ton of people like this. I cannot determine if this problem is ME or if it is them. I am the one who is really friendly and nice and then I think I am getting involved with a bunch of tough minded borderline people. Do you keep people at an arms length and not give them a chance to explain themselves? If a person likes you do you... (23 replies)
... I too do the same thing. I suffer such bad separation anxiety that whenever I feel that I am getting close to someone, I fear losing them to the point that I unconciously do things to draw them away from me. Unfortunately, I have also started to do this with my counselor (a big no-no!) But luckily, she is used to it, so she knows how to snap me out of it. With some... (23 replies)
... call them, forget pride. let them in. wait a lot of time and get to know people very well before you trust them, and dont have your expectations too high. most people are not mind readers and us borderlines need to understand that and not put all our eggs in one basket. inevitably it all comes back to us and until we regard ourselves as important and we truly care what... (23 replies)
... Could you please explain to me why forgetting to call someone should be related to BPD?!?! In borderline you actively reject people and see them as all evil as soon as they make a small "mistake" or say something you dislike, than you feel all alone again and desperately want them back again. That has nothing to do with forgetting to call people! (23 replies)
... I was diagnosed with bpd and today I disagree with the doctor who gave me that diagnosis. It's true that I forget to call someone back but then I've always have problems with memories. At least two doctors have decided I have bpd and the mental health in my area would not help me just because they *think* I have it. I don't usually forget so that's a way to disprove...
