So I’m a 16-year-old and I struggle a lot with BPD (borderline personality disorder). I really don’t know how to cope with it. A lot of times I hate myself for having BPD because it’s so mentally exhausting. I just wish I never had it! It makes me feel a lot of things that I don’t want to feel. I don’t know how to cope with this and my therapist isn’t giving me any good coping skills to deal with this.
There is no shame in having a mental disorder. It is not your fault so please dont blame yourself. Try to talk to your parents about it and suggest that a change of therapist might be good for you. If you dont feel like you are making any progress then the therapy isnt helping you. There are also some videos about BPD that might help you. I will post one here:Borderline Personality Disorder: 10 Self Care Tips to Help You Cope with BPD - YouTube
I wish you luck.
I have a pretty bad case of BPD too. It is 1000% exhausting…
One thing that has helped me and not cost a penny is watching Dr. Fox on youtube. He is an expert and makes videos about BPD and how to cope. He explains things in an easy to understand way and he’s pretty nice. I feel like if you check out his stuff you will learn so much.
Being aware of your symptoms is pretty powerful. Learning how to cope with those symptoms will change a lot for you .
Hey friend, what parts of it are you struggling with BPD? As someone that was sectioned with BPD a little over ten years ago to now having it in remission, I know how hard it can be with the rollercoaster of emotions and feeling everything a lot deeper than most
Honestly I don’t know! All I know is I’m attached to the wrong people and I am scared of abandonment sorry for my spelling
Do you mean BPD favourite person or relationship wise?
I think I have the favorite person one. Because I haven’t been in like a relationship that hasn’t lasted more then 2 weeks
