I was diagnosed with BPD nine years ago. I have been on countless Meds., especially mood stabilizers, have gone to DVT classes, but am still struggling with this on a daily basis. can anyone relate? I feel Ike my moods are bouncing off the wall and I suffer from terrible panic attacks as well as major depression. I have so much in my life to be happy for. Can I ever be cured?

There are some who say if you learn the DBT skills and apply them daily to your life that you can be ''cured''. I disagree. There are just some things we have to learn to live with.

I believe in the DBT skills and use them. I take several psych meds for my severe depression. I am in weekly therapy. There is hope that my Borderline traits will fade into the back of my life. I do not have any hope about someday be cured.

Maybe you can hold onto the happiness. I know I do in my life.

Merry Christmas,

May I ask you what Meds you are on and which help you the most with the Borderline.

There are no meds for Borderline Personality. I take meds for severe depression. No meds will help with Borderline issues unless you take an anti-axiety or anti-psychotic meds.

I'm sorry because I know this is something that is important to you. You might search the internet for meds that might help you. One website is crazymeds.com

Merry Christmas and all the best to you,
Mary
