Coping with BPD

By December 14, 2011 - 1:49pm

I know that sometimes for me it's hard to learn to cope with this disease. A lady in my church told me that the reason I have this is because I don't have my identity in Christ. Which I always thought I did but I don't know.
I have trouble coping with the compulsive thinking. I often act on the things I'm thinking before I actually think them through. I'm off in another world when I'm in my compulsive thinking. I have some coping skills and gaining more but sometimes its hard to use them when anxiety and attacks are in my boat of life.
what do yall do to cope with BPD?

Hi poeticprincess88,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thanks for sharing your story. Borderline personality disorder treatment may include psychotherapy, medications or depending how intense of treatment needed, hospitalization.  It's important to see a doctor and explain how you are feeling.

I've included a link that might be helpful

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a personality disorder described as a prolonged disturbance of personality function in a person (generally over the age of eighteen years, although it is also found in adolescents), characterized by depth and variability of moods. The disorder typically involves unusual levels of instability in mood; black and white thinking, or splitting; the disorder often manifests itself in idealization and devaluation episodes, as well as chaotic and unstable interpersonal relationships, self-image, identity, and behavior; as well as a disturbance in the individual's sense of self. In extreme cases, this disturbance in the sense of self can lead to periods of dissociation. BPD splitting includes a switch between idealizing and demonizing others. This, combined with mood disturbances, can undermine relationships with family, friends, and co-workers. BPD disturbances also may include self-harm. Without treatment, symptoms may worsen, leading (in extreme cases) to suicide attempts.
