  1. Hello ! i know im new and most of you might not know me yet , i am clinically depressed , have anxiety (im on 25 mg of Prozac) and have untreated BPD (borderline personality disorder) . although i learned how to deal with bpd for the most part and made the best out of it , i was wondering if there is anyone out there who can relate ?

    Hi there, and welcome to SF :) I can relate in that I have BPD, depression and GAD (generalized anxiety disorder). I am also on medication (about 45 mg of Cymbalta), and have been on many different antidepressants in the past. I'm not sure what you mean when you say that you have untreated BPD... have you been officially diagnosed with it? I have been diagnosed, and received DBT for it in the past. If you can get access to it, it really is a great treatment!

    I was diagnosed with clinical depression and given Paxil for it, but I stopped taking it years ago and am not currently in any kind of treatment. I also used to suffer from pretty bad social anxiety and anger issues. I don't know what other issues I may have. I have good days and bad days, and have been known to use drugs and alcohol to self medicate. I doubt that I'm exactly like you, as no two people are exactly alike, but many of us here share some similar issues.
