INVOLVED WITH A BORDERLINE:
If you find yourself searching online for a psychologist or counselor who treats people involved with those who have Borderline Personality Disorder, you are probably like many who have found them self in a similar position. Whether you are the partner, parent, or child of someone who has Borderline Personality Disorder, you may find yourself online, searching. That search often starts with trying to find ways to "fix" your Borderline, still trying to take care of them, when, in fact, it is often YOU who should seek therapy.
Did I shock you? Are you starting a defense? Listen to what I have to say. Do you feel sad? Are you always "on edge"? Do you get blamed for the problem? Do you give and give, but there is never enough?
Living with someone who has Borderline Personality Disorder can be difficult. Many relationships fail when one is BPD. When both are involved in therapy there is a better chance of making living with them better. When it is a parent or child who has lived with the drama of the Borderline, seeking help can make going forward better.
One of the first things for one who lives with the BPD to do is to learn to identify how they are being affected by them. Setting boundaries is the next step. From there, one must reclaim their own life. Rather than life revolving around the borderline, the other is entitled--and needs--their own identity, and their own happiness.
Therapy with a psychologist who understands and treats families involved with Borderline Personality Disorder can help you find your way back to feeling normal.
