    Help with my wife

    Hi -- I'm trying to find some support; my wife is having some serious mental health issues. A friend of the family has indicated that she is showing classic symptoms of BPD (marked mood swings, anger, self image issues, fear of abandonment, etc...). She has been medicated for ADHD and anxiety for years... not working.

    She's very hesitant to talk about any of this, because she feels like she is being attacked. Her parents, sister, and her three best friends have all contacted me because they are worried. As am I. Not sure what to do next. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Just remind her your old days when you met each other, your marriage and everything. Take her back to the old best memories. And do consult your physician have a proper checkup. I am sure she will get back soon.
