About Me: Male, 29, jakarta, Indonesia, member since May 2012
I am a 25-year old male with borderline personality disorder and I am seeking help.
I grew up in Jakarta until I was 18 years of age. I studied in the US from August 2005 -May 2012. I have come back to live in Jakarta for good on May 21st 2012. Only a couple of days had passed since I left the US when I wrote this note.
Growing up was very extremely difficult. I have always found it hard to make friends. I have missed many opportunities to grow and to create good memories in high school and during my undergraduate years. I have had several birthdays that have gone unnoticed. I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in 2010. I was 23 years old. The person who diagnosed me with borderline personality disorder was a school therapist. Prior to that, I had seen 7 different therapists. I have met 2 others after I was diagnosed but all ended in similar fashion: I left in a huff after several meetings. You would easily say that I needed to stick around longer but it is hard for me.
I was diagnosed with lumbar hernia in 2008. I have a scoliosis as well. I met mostly chiropractors to manage the pain. I did not attend much to my back ailments when I was in the US because I could not afford the $25 per week in addition to the cost for therapists, food and living expenses. I always find an 8-hour 5 days-a-week work schedule unbearable. I have pain whenever I am in an upright position. I am managing with a trammadol I take half a dosage a day.
What I need is somebody I can express my feeling with during this transitioning time.
Hi, I'm not sure how to add a friend; at least, not on my phone :)
I'm 30 and just been diagnosed with BPD as well, after being considered Bipolar for awhile. I have Major Depressive, General Anxiety, and some OCD as well -_-
