Having Borderline Personality Disorder is ruining my life.
I am constantly unable to get over the teeniest tinniest things people do to irritate me (which I honestly believe is intentional)... And its like... The most lonesome place to be. Because its like your own brain is making you annoyed or dislike the people you know you love... Can anyone relate?
What do you guys do?
I also have Bipolar Disorder, so its like... I'm doomed to be perceived as a rude person but thats not who I really am.
Its the worst I swear!!!

Please help!!!!

I feel the same way! I always push everyone away but when they are just absolutely fed up with my stuff I have to real them back in n make them feel like they are in the wrong and make them feel guilty for not being there to support whenever I NEED THEM!!! it's like a compulsion I keep doing it over and over!

If you can try and get some DBT, I found it hugely helpful in learning ways to deal with people as well as controlling my impulses and emotions. You need to stick with it but it is definately worth it.
