it’s hard to find medication to help with my bpd because every psychiatrist that i’ve seen always writes it off as general anxiety or trauma after knowing me for five minutes. it gets frustrating trying to “prove” to them that i am diagnosed and it’s a correct diagnosis

      I was initially prescribed medication for individual symptoms and diagnoses, eventually being horribly over-medicated. After many hospital admissions, suicide attempts and dangerous side-effects of the medication combos, the only 2 options left were electroshock or DBT. I went with DBT, an intensive therapy program that's been extremely successful for BPD. I haven't self-harmed or attempted suicide in 15yrs. Even better, some docs tell me I have surprising control over my symptoms and behaviors. So you can take meds for the symptoms like depression, anxiety or psychotic episodes, but, at least for me, the therapy piece was the miracle drug.
