Borderline Personality Disorder is BAD? therapist kati morton talking BPD, psychology & therapy

Negative videos seem to be going up about borderline personality disorder, specifically therapy, healthcare and mindfulness. I think that because so many people (professionals included) talk negatively about BPD, those of us who struggle with it can feel like it's hopeless and helpless. The truth is that BPD is something you can overcome! Yes it is a lot of work, but if we don't like how we are feeling then we have to do something about it to change it. Right?! It is my opinion that BPD is caused by either a lack of attachment to a primary care giver (mom, dad, grandma, etc) when we are a baby or it is caused by trauma. The attachment struggle can later lead to us trying to "fill" that need by other people in our lives, while also feeling scared that they will leave us too. So we want people around, and we want love and support, but we also fear that we can't trust people to be there for us and so we often try to push them away or even run away ourselves. Trauma can also lead to a lack of trust or feelings of safety. Therefore, our emotions can sort of "come out of nowhere" and we instantly feel scared and unsafe. Both of these situations lead us to feeling scared, not safe or trusting of those around us. That will make relationships very difficult. But does that make you a bad person? Absolutely not.

Comments

Alida Bailey: Any thoughts on Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy? Since often times BPD is related to childhood trauma, it seems lik with PTSD or CPTSD it could help regulate emotions and not just train people with BPD to behave better.

H Jager: I have BPD, and it's truely annoying that everywhere I look on youtube I see negative shit about BPD. It's not fun to have BPD, so please don't let us feel worse then we already feel.

Perfumaphilia: I have BPD, along with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem/self-worth, OCD symptoms, and complex-PTSD. I'm sure some of those things are inter-related. It's an absolute nightmare and sometimes I wish I had the guts to end my life.

Alma: Where can I️ find the book you were holding ? Thank you !

Steve Wright: Thank you for the recommendation on the book.

Lushious Jones: Kati I just starting watching ur videos. I'm a did patient. Aka all the above. U are amazing, touched on everyone runs from us. And I never got y I was told imma bad person. U touched on something my hole life I have struggled with. Please don't stop the videos.

Shay Yes: you are amazing. u really help and make it simple. thank u <3

synchromorph: A person can develop C-PTSD from dealing with borderlines, especially "high functioning" borderlines in positions of power.

synchromorph: Soon after I was born, I imprinted on a ping pong ball as my mother and upon entering puberty, attempted to mount it.

rain dew: You are very naive

polly10022: Thank you I really needed this. No one understands what it's like, people always say I'm oversensitive but I just can't set my emotions aside when I'm "triggered."

Awweable: Katie can you please suggest an online support forum?

Katherine TerBerg: Thank you so much for this. I watched a video on BPD and the comments made me feel incredibly worthless. The term "hateful demon" was thrown around a lot. So was "incapable of love". It temporarily reversed the incentive to seek more thorough treatment. It's good to see someone show kindness towards those with BPD.

Kirsty Petrusic: I ordered that book online and ive been working on it

Terra Joneson: I have PTSD, BPD and Bipolar 1 so thinking that I’m a bad person just comes with the territory. Thank you for all of your videos! Whenever I get a diagnosis I watch your video on it to understand it better.

Monk: “ Oh you are just a treat”

Ray Robinson: I have BPD, but i also have RAD and im 16, i have no clue if maybe i was just raised to hold everything in, or if im used to it, but sometimes i feel like i really am just an overreacting sensitive crybaby. Im not sure if im coping, ir if im keeping stuff bottled up somewhere, but, my life isnt so hard. I only have breakdowns maybe once or twice a year. I wasnt raised in a household where you were allowed to have any emotions, let alone extreme ones, i always went to my room and hid and cried and made sure no one could hear me. I dont feel pity for myself, but then again, i blocked out most of my childhood and have yet to relive any traumatic expierences. I just cant grasp all the people who go "boo hoo me", because siting in a puddle of pity isnt making you any dryer. I for one think being diagnosed has just lead to me manipulating the label BPD and not taking respondibility. (Sorry for the ramble, i also have ADHD so forgive me if i make absolutely no sense)

baron Samedi: The tendency toward serial fornication and the general instability make it a deal breaker for me.

BrittanyJElizabeth Sicuranza: Love you!!!! Omg finally someone not trashing people who suffered for so many years in their childhood!!!
