BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER CHAT ROOM
Health & Help Chat is proud to offer peer support to those struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). We aim to provide a supportive, non-judgemental atmosphere where one can feel understood and not feel the stigma associated with BPD. Whether it be to seek or give support, we welcome you to share your personal journey via our BPD Chat Room, forum and social network.
Those with BPD eventually build-up too many insecurities which casimir, or can snowball into destructive symptoms for oneself and relationships with others. Therefore it is important to realize why you feel the way you do, and what may trigger your behavior. Working toward trusting yourself and others is a long road, but well worth the effort. For those supporting people they love with BPD, it can be very difficult witnessing such sudden mood changes; especially if they inadvertently direct anger towards you. People with BPD require a great deal of patience and understanding, as progress is two steps forward, one step back. Sometimes they may take a few steps back, but that is often out of fear of abandonment; overthinking and rationalizing situations beyond their actual scope, due to past trauma. Here you will find support coping with borderline personality disorder, and ways to get better.
Borderline Personality Disorder can oftentimes be difficult to diagnose, which can lead to confusion and frustration when trying to cope. Symptoms such as explosive anger and/or other excessive emotional responses, impulsive actions such as drug and alcohol abuse, spending sprees or self-injurious acts can make daily living feel nearly impossible.. BPD also tends to affect your relationships with family and friends as well, which can lead to conflict because of their lack of understanding the illness.. Oftentimes being able to maintain healthy relationships with people is a challenge for those living with BPD due to 'splitting'. Splitting is when an individual rapidly goes from 'I love you' to 'I hate you.' Due to this, splitting, the fear of abandonment is constantly present which can be exhausting.
According to a National Institute of Mental Health study, 1 in every 25 individuals lives with this disorder. This study also indicated that most people personally know more than one person with BPD, and at least 1 family in 5 has someone with the disorder. Therefore, Health & Help Chat invites anyone that struggles with BPD whether directly or indirectly to be a part of our community. We invite friends and family of those who are close to someone with BPD to share their experience as well, and also share their own experiences that only someone who loves another with BPD could possibly begin to understand.
Health & Help Chat always encourages seeking medical attention for any mental health issue, but we also recognize that it takes incredible courage to seek help. We hope to provide a dynamic environment to which everyone finds a form of support regardless of where they are in their journey to wellness.
This Borderline Personality Disorder Chat Room, these borderline personality disorder forums, and the borderline personality disorder network offer you the opportunity to share your borderline personality disorder symptoms with others.
