I was wondering how I would go abouts getting a "Prescription" to keep my cat. I was diagnosed with BPD back when I was 16. I live in apartments that do not allow pets unless they are medically needed. I live In topeka Ks. WOuld I just go get a doctors note?

That would be where I would start. No doubt your doc would be able to give you advice if this is not enough.

Good luck - I know what a life saver a pet can be
There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

I think that would be a good place to start with. Ask your general physician or the doctor that you see most often, and also ask your therapist if you are seeing one. If you have a case worker or social worker that you deal with concerning your BPD you might also be able to ask them. You could do some research about organizations that deal with pets for the elderly, disabled, or special needs individuals and see if they can offer any help or direction.
