I'm by no means any expert, but I've been diagnosed with BPD, and I can tell you that this sounds very much, in a way, like somebody would describe me. By no means is this a diagnosis or confirmation, but to this 20-year-old depressed girl with BPD, he definitely seems to have a lot of the signs. I've been abusive to my (now ex) boyfriend wh...

Yeah, I'm up to the whole 50mg pill starting yesterday. Ironic because it was Valentine's day. That was a pretty crappy day, but a friend kinda took pity on me you would say and had me spend time with her a lot of the day. She doesn't know about my depression/bpd, so it was hard to hide how upset I was, but for a good portion of the day, I at l...

Ugh, maybe not. :( I had another awful night last night, where I threw the most gigantic fit. I was so angry and depressed and out of control. Had such awful thoughts about myself again. Even suicidal ones. I'm so tired of this! I just want to be normal and okay so I won't keep hurting and alienatIng b my ex boyfriend and family. I am trying so ha...

Things are starting to look up. By no means is it completely better, and I don't really "feel" any difference. But I've noticed that I've been getting through the day more positively, especially over the last couple days. Maybe it's just the placebo, effect. But either way, I hope it stays. :)

Took my first (half) dose today. I'm on half doses for the next few days and then will be taking the full 50mg after that. So far I don't feel any different but it's the first day, so that's natural.

I can't really give you any advice because I'm so bad at dealing with this depression thing myself, but I want you to know that your story really resonated with me and made me cry. Realize that since you're so deep in your own habits and ways of doing things, that the healing process WILL be painful, weird, embarrassing, and uncomfortable. ...

Thanks! That's really helpful, and I've experienced that with my other medication (birth control/hormones), where certain kinds will be wonderful and others make me feel even sicker for seemingly no reason. So I hear what you're saying. I check back with the psychiatrist in a week and will have another follow-up probably a couple weeks after to...

What kind of meds is anybody on for their depression, if any? I have been diagnosed with major depression and BPD after a recent suicide attempt and have just been prescribed Sertraline, a generic of Zoloft, to help my depression. I'm really scared to be on meds since I've heard Soooo many bad things, but for me I'd do just about anything t...
Do you mean how long ago were we diagnosed? I was on 1/28/2012. So a couple weeks ago.
