Lately I've noticed that I've just.. spontaneously stopped caring about some people I used to love dearly. My opinion will go from "very fond of them" to "god can they shut up" in mere days and I can barely stand being close to them. This isn't temporary either, it stays that way for the forseeable future and this has ruined a few relationships I've had. I don't want to feel this way about my current partner, and I'm afraid I'm too late. Am I the only one experiencing this?

      It comes back with time usually. Sometimes doing something him and I enjoy together helps too. It really is something where you need to be aware of what yourself with. Sometimes selfcare pulls me out of it too. Like a long cold or hot shower or a nap. I wish I had a more direct answer

      I have flipped like this with my partner. He's researched BPD while I was in a hospital stay and has grown to understand that these flips happen. Mine don't stay super long but do last a bit over a week at most. I send him a text explaining that I'm going through one of these moments and to give me time or if something caused it I send him a text explaining that and we talk it out. He gives me distance when I need it. I think it really helps that he understands what BPD is and what people with BPD go through and that it's not only hard for him but for me as well

        @SplendidSparky is there anything that helps you come back from these? Or does it just happen naturally over time? I think i accidentally made my partner feel like a pet to be called on when needed and ignored otherwise, and its breaking my heart that they feel this way because of me

      You are not alone, I've gone from relationship to relationship like this. I've found that talking to them is really scary and difficult. So I type out how I feel in my notes and hand the phone to my partner, we've been able to fix a lot of problems this way but if you find something else that works better. Stick with it whatever works best for you.❤️
