I don't seem to have some of the same walls that others here are expressing. I actually love being around people and especially being able to help someone. My anger seems to come from having my feeling invalidated for most of my life, and from the lack of contol I had in my marriage. I have had times that I've exploded at my family and have destroyed the relationship with both my daughters and my sister. It's when someone does or says something that makes me feel put down or disrespected. Somehow my feeling and words just spew forth like something automatic that doesn't even go through my brain. At the jobs I've had, the things other people have said or done have made me run and quit because of the hurt it caused. There have been a couple of times I have tried to stand up for myself, and that just made things worse. I live alone, I need to get out of this house, I need to work, but the thought of dealing with others and myself scares me to death.View Thread
Glad I found this group. My diagnosis is Bipolar and BPD. I started having problems back in 2000. I have recently started going to a depression group in my town, but they have never heard of BPD. I haven't worked in 2 years now. I desperately need the Health Insurance! I was fired from my past two jobs. I've lost all my self confidence. I'm scared of me, and failing again. I'm sick to death of trying to "fix" me! I want my life back!View Thread
