QUIET BORDERLINE! What is it? Mental Health, BPD & Kati Morton Borderline Personality Disorder?

Now BEFORE you watch this, please check out my first video about Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPopjuKuweg&list=PL_loxoCVsWqwRYQO-u0iW_bjL_DpWBbd8 That will help you better understand what BPD is so that you can then add on the idea of "quiet borderline" and what that may look like and feel like. So the traditional way that we see and experience BPD is a very outward expressing or anger out way. We can be very volatile in our relationships and even struggle with suicidality. We worry a lot about others leaving us and almost cannot trust them to stay! So we can get very upset and hurt. We express this outwardly and it can be very hard on us and those who we are in relationship with. However, there are many of us who may relate to the symptoms of BPD, but do not lash out or express any emotion outwardly. We may instead, express it inward, and take it out on ourselves solely. Obviously, everyone expresses their diagnosis differently, so you may identify with all or none of this. Just keep in mind that this is why we need to see a professional and get a proper diagnosis before we jump to any conclusions. Those of us with a "quiet borderline" may have really needed a better or more nurturing parent. This can lead us to feeling like we don't really exist or that what we need and want is not acceptable. Another portion of BPD that could be seen as a "quiet borderline" trait are the areas of impulsivity. We may binge eat or use drugs or alcohol to cope, both of which are things that do to harm ourselves and could be done in private without sharing these struggles with anyone. So you can see how it can differ person to person, and some of us may not have the traditional BPD experience. Please keep in mind that no matter what diagnosis we are given, we still need to ask questions and express your own feelings and symptoms so that our treatment team can better understand what we are going through, and make sure we are getting the proper support!

This Man: Your kinda describing me perfectly and I'm happy that I finally know some people feel the same way I do. The problem is I don't know what to do next.

Ashley Ray: is it okay to go to a counsellor and ask about bpd or quiet bpd or if i have it? because im quite young and ive read that i cannot be formally diagnosed until im 18... but ive had bpd treatment without an actual diagnosis.

Hannah Harned: I spent my childhood and teenage hood in therapy. now I cant afford it, and meditation and YouTube videos are my guides. meditation just doesnt cut it though, not when the inner voice is really fuckin loud. I'm very happy to have to I,d you, and I appreciate your words greatly.

Myshalala: I have bpd. It's gotten so much better since I was a teenager.

Sara Ribeiro: how can you be my therapist? !

Benisse Calmleth M. Famat: She reminds me of Holden's mother from AHS 5.

Ideal SimsFour: Yay! Thank you for being so understanding:D I'm feeling hopeful now:)

RegionalBlurryface: My girlfriend told me she was diagnosed with BPD a year ago, and she fits all the criteria of the quiet borderline. She directs everything to herself. Now, she at least tells me when she's sad and I can be there for her, but she does tend to push away when she's feeling that way. She thinks she's annoying or that she doesn't deserve the attention. She's one of the most gorgeous girls I have ever saw and I feel incredibly lucky to be with her. But she literally thinks she's "gross" and she is in NO way gross! She is also a twin and her twin seems to be treated by their parent's as if she's perfect and my girlfriend does everything wrong. She's still in the closet, because her parents are very religious, so that's putting a lot of stress on her too. I honestly.....don't see myself ever letting her go. I tell her how much I care for her and how beautiful she is everyday. She might not believe it herself...but she believes me when I say I think so and that is already such a big step for her. Doing as much research on the quiet borderline just so I can be better prepared for her. I do alright already but it can be very stressful. One big step though that she has made, she has not cut or hurt herself since we got together. She comes to me when she feels that now...which I'm so grateful for. I want to take care of her and love her forever and the way she actually deserves. She...is honestly such an amazing person, and I hope one day she can believe it herself.

Esther Carnes: THANK YOOUU!! I needed this.

rachcliffe: Dear Katie, I think the medication, would have taken its toll, in ten years!

Chris C: I was accused of rape by a BPD I met at a party. A 20 min chat with a complete stranger I turned down on a date took 3 months of my life. These videos help me identify these monsters. I never heard of BPD until my lawyer found out about her past. How about doing videos about the victims of BPD?

trust: i'd never gotten any treatment till i attempted suicide, and even after a week of inpatient and several months seeing my therapist and psychologist they just had me diagnosed with depression and social anxiety, which is what i was diagnosed w/ about 2 days into inpatient; the whole time it just feels off, i feel like this describes me SO much more. i feel like i have big issues w/ how i view and feel about myself and others, and how heavily it affects me, and i just get so irrationally mad or sad sometimes that i feel like ill explode and i end up lashing out by throwing things or hitting myself(lol typing that out makes me feel so crazy), but i do it at home and the only two ppl i'm able to act like that around is my parents, im too scared to act like that around anyone else so only they kno...and the invisible thing! i kept thinking over and over just earlier today how i felt invisible and nonexistent and i just felt like... unhuman, like a hollow plastic doll. everything else is just ✔️✔️✔️ too.

Matilda Kemp: We need to make one giant worldwide network as big as facebook so that we can build unity and make new nearby friends who will always understand and accept us

evanescence481: I don't know what I feel. I can't identify or describe my emotions properly. So since I can't understand them, I do my best to ignore them. I wanna stop doing that. How do I do that?

Amanda warlick: This is my first year with my BPD diagnosis, and these videos have been a lifesaver for me. I often am kept up at night with worry that ill never be able to manage how intensely i feel all the time, or how i always end up deeply hating the people i deeply love. I pop on a kati morton BPD video and by the end my worries are gone. There's something about her language and tone that is so reassuring. Thank you, Kati

TheEndofsilence112: I know this is an older video but I have a quick question. Last year I was diagnosed with OCD with severe panic attacks, and before that I had been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. My psychiatrist mentions that I have borderline traits or tendencies. I also watched your borderline video where you read from the DSM and I think I hit five of the traits, but it's not as severe. Like, those traits don't happen all of the time. But my question is, can Borderline be a byproduct of my OCD? It's something my therapist and I briefly discussed, that maybe I get these borderline traits because of my obsessive fears of harming people, or of losing people. I'm very attached to my parents, because I have this obsessive fear that they'll leave the house one day and get in a car accident and die. So, I have to tell them I love them and to be safe whenever they leave, and just stuff like that. I also have other traits but, my question just remains if the borderline traits I have can be somewhat of a by product of my OCD and anxiety?

Andrew Laboy: THANK YOU

Dela's Journey: I'm shocked.. I'm Bpd and one daughter I thought.. but the middle daughter is beautiful soul like you . She's hurting tho ohhh boy and pretending so hard I can't even read her rrrrrr . Oh she's good 😂y'all should be detective style people. Hey we're all pretty great 👍 we aren't evil yay .

Max D: I need that frog. Where do I find it  ??

Haelee: I've never been to therapy/a psych but am very interested in it, as my mental health has become unbearable the past few years. I feel like bpd could be a possibility for me, but want to be properly diagnosed-- however, I have heard from many people that many docs tend to be iffy on diagnosing bpd. Is it something I should specifically mention wanting to be looked into, or should I just leave it to whoever I see?
