Lizze is having a very emotional day. She’s trying to come to grips with her diagnosis what it means. There is no medication for Borderline Personality Disorder, so forward progress is going to be extremely slow and painful.
Something that I forgot to mention yesterday, is that the doctor believes that her depression is secondary to the BPD.
Apparently, this explains why her depression hasn’t responded to medication. This has her feeling pretty distraught because the depression is bad and she was desperately hoping that a medication change would help.
She’s also feeling a tremendous amount of guilt for the strain this puts on our already strained family. No amount of me trying to reassure her that it isn’t her fault or that we will make it through this is helping.
Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
If you are dealing with Borderline Personality Disorder and would like to reach out to Lizze or even if you just want to send her a few kind words, that would be amazing. You can find her at her blog: My Life Beyond Labels. I know she would appreciate connecting with others that can understand and relate.
