Please know you are not alone. I was diagnosed with Borderline ten years ago. Sometimes I just lose it and start shouting and slamming doors. I feel like no one understands the hell I constantly live with in my mind. Like you, I am struggling just to get dressed in the morning. Either I am mad and angry and not talking to my family, or they are "the best family in the world". I sometimes feel like I have two separate personalities-like Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde-a and I can easily switch personalities. It scares me because I feel I don't have any control over when this will happen. Medications help and I see a psychiatrist once a month but life is a constant struggle and I have very low, if any, self esteem. Please feel free to talk to me at any time. I have had a lot of therapy for Borderline, specifically DBT, and it helpsme a lot IF I am rational enough to use the coping techniques when I need to. When people see me acting "normal", Its me using many of the techniques I've learned. Every day is a struggle and usually a new argument with a family member. Having Borderline is exhausting, and I have also been diagnosed with OCD, Major anxiety and Depression, an eating disorder, and suffer from panic attacks. I understand how miserable you are. Feel free to "vent" to me at any time. I am here for you.View Thread
