  • 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...

He requires so much of my time and I willingly gave him a lot of it. When I moved in with him It...

    Dependent PD

    Hi,I just started here and have been moving through the site. So far I am not seeing a lot in the area of Dependent Personality Disorder. It's something that I have been struggling with as since adolescence. I'm 52, in my 2nd marriage (of 15 years), and still struggle with insecurity with myself and with relationships. One of my greatest fears is loneliness. It's why I have a history of...
