Turned down by potential psychiatrist? How is this the second time this has happened to me. They don't have any one who can treat me and my unique illnesses. I think I put down BPD and a bunch of suicide attempts on the paperwork and they don't want me. I'm too severe, last time in 2018 the psychiatrist met with me and said it to my face, I'm headed to becoming a statistic and would I want me as a patient? Truth is I'm a good patient, med complaint. Been depressed for too many months but relatively stable for me. Everyone deserves help. This is BS. They are allowed to decline a patient but it feels like discrimination.

      Fellow person with BPD here and I understand why that would be frustrating and difficult to deal with. Here are some self help methods you can try❤️: I would definitely look into CBT/DBT free printable worksheets online as well as meditative videos on YouTube.. Look up different breathing techniques on YouTube and even breathing apps. Set goals for yourself but be gentle if you're not able to reach them or relapse. I would suggest trying to find a hobby as well as trying to set a good eating/sleep schedule. Take regular multivitamins and drink lots of water. I find that setting a good schedule/routine is very helpful. I also had to work through a lot of my trauma (through writing it out/processing the feelings) before I could feel less sad/depressed but after that with DBT & CBT I have become better through learning the necessary skills to work through my intense emotions by forcing myself to think through certain things and rationalize through writing poetry/journaling/DBT/CBT. I also recommend the TIPP method (ice dunk) for when you're struggling with intense emotions. Wysa is a good virtual therapist app to feel less alone as well as Replika (although Replika isn't for therapy). I understand

      That’s got to be tough. I wish I could find a therapist that actually helps me. I ordered a DBT workbook to help me because I can’t seem to find a therapist that actually helps me. Hang in there. Keep your head up and keep fighting for your life and wellbeing. Even when others write you off.
