Hello all, I am in desperate need of any advise anyone is able to give regarding Borderline (BPD). My difficult child daughter has just been given that diagnosis, on top of or opposed to BiPolar (BP). I was always iffy about the BiPolar (BP) diagnosis, when I did the research on Borderline (BPD), there was no doubt in my mind this was the right diagnosis. She is a classic Borderline, no doubt about it. She has every single symptom listed!!! Every one of them. She is 17 and has been in 3 rtcs, numerous day treatment programs and on several different medication combos. We are running out of time as her 18th birthday will be here before we know it, at which point I will have absolutely no control over her mental health whatsoever. I have read that this will be the worst time in her life, early adulthood will be the most challenging for her and our family. The research says she will be able to gain stability later on in life. However, I really need to hear that from someone with firsthand experience in dealing with this disorder. So if anyone has had experience with this and would be willing to share I would greatly appreciate it as I am losing my mind over here!!! She is extremely hard to live with, violent towards me and members of my family, all about herself, has no boundaries, no respect and no direction in life. My 7 yr old son has witnessed things that will no doubt affect him in the long run. I am scared for him just as I am scared for her. Please help. Thanks for listening and God bless.
