It is not possible to diagnose a psychological disorder while a person is taking or in WD from psychotropic drugs. A fact many doctors tend to over look. What you are feeling is a direct result of taking and discontinuing the drugs.  Once you're completely off the drugs and have gone through an extended period of recovery, then you can start looking for clinical reasons.  Until then, it's the drugs.

hi brassmonkey thanks for the reply ,ye but when all the research and behaviour  points to the fact it looks like BPD its very hard to accept its not. I cant even taper because I'm so unstable and super sensitive to tapering  yet I need to get off the poison to get better [what a mess] someone please wake me up from this nightmare .there's that much criticism out there now about psychiatry who could we even trust for a diagnosis .the DSM no thanks .

I cant go two more years this unstable and then not even tapering ,so then there's the  other option of changing the drug and hoping I don't get even worse .I'm in the twilight zone like many others .beam me up scotty please :unsure:.

respect

Hello PB. I've been diagnosed with BPD and that is my official diagnosis that I've had for many years. I've had symptoms from early childhood - so, when I wasn't taking any medication. It's not something that you suddenly develop, like something else, for example - an anxiety disorder, but something that's developed in early childhood and that you have symptoms of from when you were young.

 

So, I agree with brassmonkey. I've had symptoms of OCD, but I know that I, in fact, don't have it, because I've never experienced severe OCD symptoms before withdrawal. For me, it was a withdrawal, and especially because it suddenly flew away like nothing happened, which is typical for withdrawal.

 

I understand your concern that you might have something, but we should focus more on the recovery from the symptoms we're experiencing than on the disorder we have. I don't say that you don't have symptoms, but there is a big possibility that you don't have a disorder. It's different. 
Anyways, with those symptoms, dialectical behavioral therapy helped me. You can search a bit about it and see what it is and its mechanisms.

 

Wish you all the best.

Hello,

 

please, does anyone have a succesfull story with using Non-violent communication for treating Borderline personality disorder? A psychologist suggested me to use it, and it makes sense. I would like to also avoid mainstream group psychotherapy or any intervention involving shrinkers. I suppose NVC is just a part of the overall recovery, but it seems to me it could be a key one.

@Tomash, hello.

 

I can't speak specifically on Borderline Personality Disorder, but I will say that Marshall Rosenberg's book, "Nonviolent Communication," was a game changer for me. I think it fits very well into a cognitive behavioral therapy approach to overall cognitive restructuring. I noticed that I was able to be a better listener, communicate my needs more effectively, and be more receptive to the needs of other's. I recommend.

 

Hang in there,

 

Dave
