  • (Borderline Personality Disorder) - Why do I always feel SOOOO empty?

    I know chronic feelings of emptiness is one of the core features of the illness. But WHY? WHY do I feel so horribly empty even when I am happy? I have a life (family, friends, interests etc) (no religious stuff please).

  • How much propranolol can I take?

    My doctor gave me the 10mg tablets and said to take one. I did and it didn't work very well. I have also tried taking two, which worked slightly better, but still not enough to stop the anxiety. Is it safe to take 3 or 4 of them (30-40mg)? I am also on 50mg Sertraline (Zoloft).

  • I wake up in the middle of the night having a panic attack?

    Almost every night about 1 hour after I have fallen asleep I wake up having a panic attack (or very severe anxiety). Like, I wake up like that. Shaking, that horrible hot/cold feeling, sickness, terror etc. But for NO REASON. What is this? Is it night terrors (I don't have nightmares or wake up screaming)?.

  • Can Sertraline (Zoloft) work in only 4 days?

    I'm on my fourth day of it (only been taking 25mg, although due to start 50mg tomorow and was told I would eventually be on 150mg). I just got REALLY hyper for like an hour and have felt sort of pleasantly happy since then, if a bit anxious...well, how I think a non-depressed person feels, anyway, ever since. I heard then take 2-3 weeks,... show more

  • Why does Meth make you ugly?

    Like in before and after pictures of crystal meth users, they got really ugly/scary looking. Not just emaciated but they have sores and their faces just look wrong. How does the drug cause this effect? I ask entirely out of curiosity, by the way :P.

    It's not so much I think as I KNOW, to be honest.. I have all 9 of the diagnostic criteria (only 5 are required for diagnosis), every report on it may as well have been written about me, etc. People have even accused me of things which are Borderline symptoms, too.

ANYWAY, So I have been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety, and Bulimia Nervosa (w/ anorexic features). I really want to tell my doctor I think I am Borderline, but is it something you say to a doctor? I don't want to seem like I am angling to be diagnosed with it (I just want to be assessed) or that I am doing his job for him.

    I have this and realize it is a very horrible and serious mental illness. But can anyone think of good or positive things about having it? (Would especially be interested in hearing from professionals or other Borderlines, but all suggestions are really appreciated =]).

    I rarely eat. Some days I might have something small once or twice (a piece of bread, a bowl of cereal), some days I eat nothing. It's more that I just rarely feel hungry than a calorie-thing. I drink A LOT of coffee (dozens of cups) per day to get high off the caffeine. I do this mostly because it makes me feel okay for a while whereas I am normally depressed. I drink a lot of alcohol, too (only at night, though, and not every night), but when I drink it I do it to purposely get drunk. because, like the caffeine, it helps me feel better. I feel very depressed some days (almost every day) and think about killing myself a lot. I don't have an actual plan but I have thought about it enough to know exactly how I would do it. Every so often I do eat (a normal meal) and then make myself throw up after. I don't know why I do it, it just feels like something I have to do. I don't know what's wrong with me, though, it could be depression, bulimia, substance abuse (does caffeine even count?). I DO know I have Borderline Personality Disorder, if that counts toward anything.

    I am 19 and have known for about 3 years now that I have Borderline Personality Disorder. I say I *know* because I meet the criteria so completely. Plus I have done A LOT of reading about it since then and it freaked me out because it was so much like reading about myself. Anyway, I was recently diagnosed with "Major Depressive Disorder" and given anti-depressants (Sertraline AKA Zoloft). Anyway, it was easy to talk about depression because it's so easy to describe and because it is so common...but Borderline Personality Disorder has SOOO many symptoms and affects me in such a massive variety of ways, I wouldn't even know what to say or how to begin. Can anyone please help? How can I bring it up? What should I say? I want to be clear and make sure he understands I have it, but I don't want to sound like I'm doing his job, either. Ohh and also I have Bulimia (ties in with the Borderline, I guess) and I'm not sure how to bring it up (no pun intended)?.
