Personality Disorders Support Group

Personality disorders form a class of mental disorders that are characterized by long-lasting rigid patterns of thought and behaviour. Personality disorders are seen by the American Psychiatric Association as an enduring pattern of inner experience and behavior that deviates markedly from the expectations of the culture of the individual who exhibits it.

    Suicidal and hopeless

    1
    I am new on this site. I am so exhausted from struggling. I am tired of the loneliness and the chronic suicidal feelings. It hurts just to be alive. I dread going to sleep because I dread waking up to another day of misery every morning. I have been hospitalized over 20 times. Nothing helps me and everyone is giving up on me.I don't want to die but I can't live anymore. I used to get relief from...

    Social Phobia

    I think I have a mild case of everything. My biggest one is fearing conflict with people and so I avoid dealing with people, especially confrontations. So, I tend to be a bit schizoid. If I don't flirt with a woman, she would never know I fancy her, right? I always stop myself mainly because of low self-esteem. Yet, other people say I am more than OK once they know me. I would like to make more...

  • I've been seeing a new therapist for the past couple months and she has diagnosed me with a borderline personality. I know it's a long road of recovery. Part of me wants to do everything possible to stop sabotaging my life. Yet, I've been this way for so long it's all I know. The despicable thought of just staying this way because it's what I know and I've made it my unhealthy little comfort...
  • Hey all. I've been diagnosed with bipolar I now for several years but nothing is really improving. Several times in the hospital, people have tried to label me with borderline (and while I have nothing against that diagnosis, it does not fit me). My outpatient providers have all sort of shrugged that off because I don't fit the borderline model and so we just never really paid any more attention...
