Why Doesn't Therapy Work For Borderline Personality Disorder?

NoirVelours: Was diagnosed many many years ago with BPD and SPD. I found how to live a happy balanced life by isolating myself from others as much as possible and reorienting my career into a field where I didn't need social interactions. Since I'm not trying to fit in with the normals anymore and accept myself with all my weirdness my mood swings are rare, recurring depression has not showed up in 4 years now, I'm happy and optimistic about life. People and their drama were my problem plain and simple.

Drewdle: I wish I had read about BPD a lot sooner. I might have been able to steer my ex to getting the help she needs. To mention it now she would just perceive it as an insult and an attack on her.

ggmail: and if the therapist hates you

tranquility: They are also super delusional. Man or woman, they can perceive every person as a potential love interest, or as a "savior" to ease them out of the jail that is their mind.

turbine: BDP injury easily becomes crushing decades deep hole.

Cate Clark LMT: Painful and familiar, this video explains 40 year old daughter's behaviors and attitudes perfectly.Thanks for the insight and clarity.

BV Mac: This information has saved my life and unveiled my eyes so I can see clearly and wake the fuck up to my conscious state. Thank you I will elaborate more once I feel safe and away from my current lair of darkness that appears to me as something light and welcoming.

Mad Marc: Thank you. very helpful

Sophia: I have so much respect for you. You have the understanding of narsistic personality disorder and bpd down to an art.

dian: Thank you again lil shaman-excellent video. So true about therapist, I think sometimes we feel nervous and helpless in front of them. Like its their game, when its your life.

clayton comeaux: OMG, you've nailed it. So therapy for my adopted 15yo son is hopeless.

Holographic Multiverse: Borderlines SENSE very easily. For example, if their partner is turned in by perversion, a Borderline can sense it and try to address it but since the partner is Insidious, the Borderline flips their shite bc she knows he's lying. I've seen it in my ex's ex- he was cheating on her (bc he told me) and his ex flipped one time and hit him with a pan. He was not only CHEATING, LYING, but DERIDING HER. I'm not a fan of her, but he was a douche to her and he told me this himself

Holographic Multiverse: Yay! I like the in person video much better! 💃💖

JLOVE Catastrophe!!: Love your hair!! My ex-friend has bpdl. Our friendship went belly-up bc her bpd started acting up really bad, which killed me. She thought I had these malintentions & was paranoid I was out to get her & has ever since. One month she'll be friendly & the next month wipes me out of her life... Then welcomes me back months later. I'm over it now, can't play those games but wish the best for her. You kinda look just like her mom!! Thank you for sharing you're knowledge :)

Walter W: My ex accused our marriage therapist of stroking my ego and us of ganging up on her. She also accused me of having him fooled because he didn't believe I had an anger issue.

dreamers frost: thank you to make everything so clear to me now.

aforementioned_beat: It can be emotionally draining and extremely frustrating to love a person with bpd. You can never get them to take of all their masks ... there are just too many masks.

Paul Ronco: Borderlines may be real victims of real abuse. Often the abuse is imaginary, but sometimes it's not. Sometimes the abuse is serious, but sometimes it is also very minor. The problem is that their reactions to all of it are greatly exaggerated because they have learned no coping mechanisms other than rage.

gen mainion: i have borderline and for years i lied to theropists i would leave a relationship before i thought they would leave me so i couldn't get hurt(only by myself) after 19 yrs of being told i had this i finally, having being sent for drug and alcohol treatment i stayed on and worked what made me this way and ways to cope with it. i call the theropist i worked with akid i don't even think he was 30 yet but he was awesome

FreedWulf: I believe in western medicine a lot, but as someone diagnosed with bpd, I've found that some therapists were great and others weren't. I've been through dbt and that helped[that was suggest by my therapist]. then my psychiatrist told me that I was too normal to have bpd, which to anyone that has this disorder will know, my reaction wasn't the best to that. Because after finding something that explained the way I felt and took me off the meds I was on for things that weren't wrong with me...it was a tad upsetting...and by a tad I'm no longer seeing that psychiatrist
