Hi I'm Darren a 41 yr old BPD sufferer, was diagnosed about 2 yrs ago after my 2nd hospitalisation after severeal suicide attempts. I was originally diagnosed with ASPD but the psychiatrist I see in hospital was an arse and didn't like me.
I have been recieving psychotherapy for the last 3 years but in that time have had 3 different psychiatrists, 2 CPN's and 3 psychologists. It seems that where I live, they have difficulty getting staff to stay.
I am also a self-harmer.
I am currently trying mindfullness meditation, self soothing, breathing exercises and emotion regulation all of which is very new so I cannot comment on them yet, but am placing all my faith with my current psychologist.
