Dating someone with borderline personality
Some people pull away for space, which is possibly the hardest thing for us to take.This may be because it’s thought that BPD could stem from early attachment issues in childhood, so another of the main symptoms is a ‘chronic fear of abandonment (real or perceived)’.
Paranoia is a common symptom among people with BPD, and this can blow not replying to a text, because your phone was on silent, into your partner thinking you have been hit by a bus/run away with the circus/are having an affair with your boss, in under 30 minutes.
When you finally meet the person who sets your world on fire, it feels incredible.
You want to spend every minute of the day with them because you find them so interesting, so much fun, and so enjoyable to be around.
While there is no single medication available to treat BPD specifically, there are different medications that can help different symptoms depending on what the individual is experiencing.
The intense emotional pain felt by those with BPD can lead to mood fluctuations of uncontrollable anger, depression and anxiety.
