Hello and welcome to healing well . Okay, most Bipolars Ellie are BPD. They have the some of the same similarities as we do. I personally have not been dx, but think I could be. there's like no test for it, I think. ( Talk to Shannon on that one, although they might have a trait list or questionare, or behavioral study of the person). BPD, are highly unstable emotionally, wide range of mood swings in respnose to stressful events, they also have impulsive behaviors that can be self destructive, suicidal. Starts in adolescence and is believed to be herited. BPD's also can have psychotic episodes. Hmmmmmmm... yep that definately sems like me. I believe Shannon is. I wonder now how they distinguish that from Bipolar. Or I can see how misdx could happen. okay, there's a question for anyone, are people will Bipolar BPD as well? Or i could ask my doc, although I was just there yesterday, but back in 2 weeks. Lol Oh I am entirely too young to see him that much, I wonder if I can purchase stock in him.LOL That;s funny.

I am Nickie , Bipolar I (rapid clycer) , have a beautiful daughter 3, and am a Surgical Technologist student. We have all kinds of knowledgeable people!!
