First of all hugs to you. I have a friend that lives out east who has this dx and is on medication. The trick is to make sure they take their meds and don't stop.
Of course that is easier said then done ! My friend does take her meds and when she went off her med she went into a deep depression and hurt herself. She spent weeks in the hospital on a ventilaor and then into a special home where she was not alone.
Disturbances suffered by those with borderline personality disorder are wide-ranging. The general profile of the disorder typically includes a pervasive instability in mood extreme "black and white" thinking, or "splitting"; chaotic and unstable interpersonal relationships, self image, identity and behavior as well as a disturbance in the individual's sense of self. . In extreme cases, this disturbance in the sense of self can lead to periods of dissociation. These disturbances have a pervasive negative impact on many or all of the psychosocial facets of life. This includes the inability to maintain relationships in work, home, and social settings.

Oh Dear Mary,
I am sorry, I was kidding you as I had written a book and at the end I did not really have a great answer for you. It is my nurse humor and it gets me into trouble sometimes so please don't take offense. If we were talking in person you would have heard the verbal cues that I was just kidding you. I hope we would have been having a cup of something while we visited in person.
I am here to support you always and would never be disrespectful. You are family and that makes your children famiily too.
I know my friend is living in an apartment now but she has someone come every week and she has to do what they say, the house must be clean and proof that she is able to continue living ok without someone to be with her. If not she will have to go back to the gruop home.
I sometimes think she would be less lonely in the group home and therefore have less of a tendency to make up storie to obtain attention.
I know as a Mother you are heartbroken as you all have been through more then anyone should have to experience. I will offer prayers and send big hugs to help you continue to do what you can. Remember you are a great Mother. You have come a long ways and lost a lot, be kind to yourself too. ((((((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))))))))
Dear Mary, Lyn's Fibro is kicking up a storm and the Lyrica is causing her some brain fog. Her Crohns is not behaving either. I think she is just in need of a lot of rest right now.
She sent me an email and said she would try to get on the site tomorrow. She is the best and how I wish I could be with her and help her out.
My hubby is better every day but my sister is not doing well and I think she is having the fluid in her abdomen pulled off tommorow.
Thank for the kind words and email me any time you like. I support you and love you. The members of HW are my family as I have very little family and if I lose my sister that will leave me with no sister to visit in North Dakota.
Hugs and love
You know how very sad I am that things have happenned in this (and your daughter) You know you can email me anytime. I thank you for you caring enough to be sharing emails in this time. I hope the rift is over. Go in peace sweet MC
Bless, I have info on BPD but do wish to share at HW....
I meant to say that I know BPD but would rather talk privately about it. Huggles,
