    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    How and Why to Report a Post

    anyone here with bpd having problems with mood and major fluctuations during 24 hour period each and every day?? would like to discuss.

    I find I can go from feeling okay to angry to crying and not know why.

    My T states it is a part of EID...(Emotional Intensity Disorder) the new term that includes BPD. Because feeling, thinking, expressing ourselves was not "safe" to do or was always "wrong" we surpressed all. The moods based in the present are increased tenfold from a past of supression. It's like every emotion imaginable is shouting all at the same time to be heard.

    I'm still learning about this at anyrate... but so far, this is how my T explained things.

    Hope this helps SB.

    thanks! yes that is what happens to me and why i apparently write so wildly here and am so wildly in my emoitions in my life. it drives me nuts! I don't like it one bit!

    I see why this is part of me now. i'm so lonesome.
    yes i had to suppress all the time. want so badly to sh last night and didn't and want to again real badly and don't know why???
    mandybutterflykiss replied to sittingbull594's response:

    The urge being there and the not knowing why...I understand this well. SH has been our "friend" for so long and is an addiction. My T states the urge will always be there, just not as powerful and not as frequent as when under stress.

    hey bon

    thanks for the replies. Yeah my t says as much i guess. I said to her yesterday that i think this will always be a part of me and she said maybe but that when the time gets less and less in between when i do harm then it will be less problematic >???? i can't remember what the heck she said.

    I'm so happy for you bon. You've done really well in such a short period of time. Keep on keepin on.
