There have been a few threads about this. I hate bpd/ euphoria. It dictates a lot of my life. People assume you are attention seeking and manipulative. I’m not I don’t manipulate any more than someone without it. Do you find this to be the case with you?

I don't think I manipulate anyone. I only got diagnosed last November so am still getting my head round it. I've just completed STEPPS.

I will be starting intense therapy in September. I’m assuming it will be dbt and it will be 2 - 3 days a week. I have been diagnosed around 3/4 years and had some psychodynamic therapy but it became too much.

Thanks for thread op and others. Can i ask how it affects day today life? And is all treatment psychologically based?

I'm on medication to help stabilise my mood but most treatment, as I understand it, is psychological rather than pharmaceutical.

Day to day life can be difficult. On bad days I go from euphoric to suicidal several times a day. I'm learning to manage my emotions but it's still an ongoing process.

I also take medication to control the symptoms but at present they are not controlling it properly. I recognise that I’m becoming unwell again and thankfully I have a psychiatrist appointment next week. I could not live my day to day life without the medication, I would likely be in hospital. I’m scared of what my future looks like. I’m lucky I have an amazing fiancé who is so loving and caring.
