Angry Diagnosed with BPD today😵 - February 25th 2015, 09:34 PM

Hey everyone.
Had a session with my psychiatrist today and he's diagnosed me with borderline personality disorder.
Also I've been referred to a dietician because apparently comfort eating and making yourself sick isn't normal. I'm pretty sure a lot of people do this and it has never been an issue with mental health professionals before.

I've done a lot of research today and tonight and yeah this does describe me down to a tee.
I'm just so angry, scared and confused.
My psych pointed out that I have a very black and white view of things but he didn't explain what that meant. Everywhere I've looked for info on this term I don't understand as the use of huge clinical words ect. Can someone explain to me what that means?

Also is there anyone here with this diagnosis?
I'm so angry because from what I've gathered, BPD develops from an abusive childhood amongst other factors. But mainly the abuse. I find myself now making a revenge plan to execute on my brother and dad. I want them to be punished. I know it sounds absolutely irrational and downright horrible but they have done so much to me and now they could be the reason as to why I have been labelled with BPD? To be honest I just can't handle this diagnosis.

Re: Diagnosed with BPD today�� - February 28th 2015, 09:59 PM

Hey there,

I was diagnosed with BPD about two and a half years ago now and have been in hospital for treatment for about 18 months. My disorder got pretty severe so I spent 8 months on an adult acute ward and then since have been in a locked DBT (Dialectal behavioural therapy) rehab ward specialised for people with BPD. I also have ednos and bulimia, PTSD and depressive episodes.


I would try and not to see it as being "labelled". I know that might be hard but for me having the diagnosis gave me the opportunity to get the right support and help that I so desperately needed. I became an alcoholic, self harming everyday, needing to go to hospital every day, constantly attempting suicide and doing anything I could to hurt myself along with all these feelings of guilt, fear of people rejecting me and leaving me and a whole bunch of other things.

Its hard to get through but with the right support and the right help you can do it and it sounds like you have a support network in place. Talk to these people and explain how you feel and what you need. You're number one in this and you need to look after yourself. You need to do what works for you.

If you have any questions or anything, please feel free to reply.
Jessie.
