Diagnosed with bpd last year, don't really understand the scope of the hold it has on my daily life. Been struggling with it since I was 14. What symptoms indicate progression in condition or treatment?

      @snakesandlovers Living with BPD is a rollercoaster of a journey, but I like to think we are very perceptive of our experiences and learn from our highs and lows.

      Hello! Very similar experience with diagnosis timeline and age symptoms started. The greatest progressive I've noticed in myself from a few years ago to now is my impulse control. Specifically when I'm having an upsetting conversation with another person. A few years ago I would respond to feeling insulted by lashing out and trying to cut the person down as deeply as I could. I hated that I did it after the fact. What I do now instead is say the nasty stuff in my head (shit I scream it in my head), but wait 5 seconds before I allow myself to speak out loud. This has significantly improved my ability to speak my emotions, but in a constructive way. Another sign of progression is a reduction in the frequency and intensity of switching moods throughout the day.

        @fupaoverlord thanks for the response. From what you said it sounds like I got better, and then got worse. Hoping I get back to better I know it's a journey.
