How do you deal with BPD, Life changing events (seperation),
Diagnosed in January, reading up I can see where it has affected me throughout life. Getting help slowly. I see the same characteristics in my 8 year old son. How do I help him when I’m unable to get the right help for myself? I don’t want him to get to my age (36) and wish someone had intervened, looked into it, made an effort. I have so much trouble dealing with it now and prior to diagnosis that I feel I am so set in my response ways I need to step in and help my son see the other side/understand what’s going on. Plus if I have trouble dealing with my emotions etc and hate myself, how much is he feeling being so young and no idea what’s happening or why he does things.
