Do you mean Bipolar Disorder, or Borderline Personality Disorder. Can you describe your symptoms in more depth?
Borderline Personality Disorder
I was diagnosed with depression 4 years ago but was unable to see out the treatment as my parents do not encourage mental health discussions.
I have prev self harmed, i am absolutely terrified of being left alone and i sometimes i wonder what is the point of carrying on.
Hallmark of Borderline personality disorder is the instability of interpersonal relations. Associated features include self mutilation, alternating from extremes of good to bad and possible transient (temporary) psychotic episodes. Treatment is a type of behavioral psychotherapy called Dialectal Behavioral Therapy. In some cases medication is used. Anti psychotic like Haldol are used for the psychosis and anti depressants of the SSRI and SNRI class are also employed. I am placing a link so you can read further about the disorder.
