I was misdiagnosed as bipolar. I’m actually borderline. There is no cure. No meds can help. Sometimes I wish I was bipolar because there is a cure for it. With BPD i feel I have no hope. I know it’s bad to wish I was bipolar but at least that can be cured.
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
Hearing "no cure" from a medical professional sounds scarier than it is in this case. Yes technically no cure but if you look at the label as a cheat code you know the code to your particular explained behavior and thought process. Not many people get the answer to their question "why am I like this". I had the same discomfort first being diagnosed but can assure you I am full of hope more so than ever having the knowledge I do about myself
DBT therapy is supposed to help a lot with borderline
Im having such a hard time finding a DBT therapist. I would if I could
Also recently diagnosed with BPD, there is hope. Some medications have helped a lot with my symptoms, and therapy has been helping. Albeit slowly. Try to Be gentle with yourself ♥️
As someone also living with bpd there is somewhat a cure there can be a day where you aren’t diagnosed with the criteria which meets the diagnosis for bpd so in that sense maybe that can be a positive for you another positive is that it isn’t a lack of chemicals or a misfiring in your brain it is learned thought patterns and behavior I hate how badly stigmatized this disorder is and it can absolutely feel like it will never get better or be understood but there are superpowers which come with this disorder as well incredible intuition and ability to read people while also being deeply sensitive and thoughtful and empathetic going over the good parts in my head makes me feel better
I disagree there is no cure for bi polar. There is medicine to calm the symptoms but that’s as far as it goes. Any mental illness requires therapy and some type of medicine to help calm down attacks.
I didn’t say there was no cure for bipolar. I said there is no cure for Bpd
