    Yes, when I drink i become miserable. I spiral in depression and loneliness.

    I haven't drank much, but the times I did, i have not blacked out. Maybe your medication combined with BPD intensified it

    YES YES YES. I used to be borderline alcoholic, and I was loony tunes. Now, I notice the increased symptoms when I drink and the next two days. I ended so many relationships and friendships when drunk. Try to limit. I smoke the pots instead, but I'm in a legal state.

    Yes, I get triggered way easier, even if I'm just buzzed or tipsy, and if I dissociate, it's way worse with any amount of alcohol in me.
