    hey, I am new to the site but old to bpd I have not found any drug that will help with bpd but I am treated with geodon and cymbalta for bi polar and I'm on campral for alcoholism that helps with impulse control but I still fly into a rage over small stuff.
    I'm finding that the whole over thinking and the catastrophising cannot be helped with meds. I am now trying to get help with that but people have a hard time understanding the agony that comes along with it.
    I am reaching out to people and trying to explain that I don't know what it feels like to be comforted so when I try to self sooth I don't know what feeling I am supposed to have. none of this is easy but I'm still trying.
