Personality disorders form a class of mental disorders that are characterized by long-lasting rigid patterns of thought and behaviour.

    hi all, I'm new to this group. I have struggled with mostly social anxiety for most of my life. In about 2008, when I was 25, it seemed to develop into more general/health anxiety. I started worrying constantly about my health and convincing myself I had a brain tumor. Since then I have been suffering with this on and off. There are times when it gets really bad and times when it's manageable. My...

    BPD and No Childhood Trauma?

Two loving parents that stayed together, we were always fine finanially, I got good grades, I never went through any sort of loss. People bring up that I could have represeed memories, but I just find that so hard to believe. There...

Side effects of any medicaiton always terrify me. Doc said the most common side effect is just becoming too mellow, like being drugged up. I am also on Prozac and Welbutrin, and I also have depression, anxiety, and OCD, if that info is...

    Hi. My girlfriend has BPD, and was "dumped" by her therapist yesterday. She was very upset, drinking heavily to cope, and then saying a lot of things to try to push me away too. I know she's struggling so I'm not taking the things she says personally, but I don't know how to support her through this. She's wanting to give up on everything and very hopeless right now. I'm not sure what her mood...

    I've been struggling with really intense mood swings since I was young and I don't know if I have some sort of personality disorder. I'll go from being really anxious to depressed to irritated and to being perfectly calm all in the same day. It's really hard to deal with these mood swings and sometimes I'll feel like I'm acting kinda different than I normally am, does it seem like I have a...
