Hi thanks for asking ...She has been really good, amazing I could even say ! Since about 3-4 days before Christmas ..she was eating properly haven't had any aggressive behaviour or even any arguments everything has been smooth she's been home every night .. and now seems like out for nowhere she is deeply depressed not eating for days won't leave her bedroom which is in complete darkness, migraines crying etc ..so I guess just on another cycle ..she's going to her psycologist tomorrow which she enjoys but doesn't do any of the activities she sets .. my heart just breaks ..she's on a wait list for a psychiatrist it's another 4 months away ..

Hi thankyou for replying ..yes I registered and booked for the parent support ..that's an amazing service! Currently my daughter is in a good space in the sense of not being aggressive ..at times she is not home for upto 7 days (she is only 16) I do know where she is in a general sense ..when she is home it's normally for only one night so we don't get to the point of explosive behaviour she generally sleeps the whole time . I'm just waiting patiently for the sessions to start for her in January to start working towards some goals ..she thinks medication is the answer but has also realised therapy is also a strong tool which took me months to get her to go to . Her initial diagnosis was either bipolar or BPD ..but her therapist thought more like BPD but again waiting to find more answers and help . When I read about BPD it's literally like reading a book about my daughter and the words written in this forum was so familiar it's kind of a relief to know I am not alone !

Hi . Wow I have been researching for months information on BPD and how parents are dealing with it and I just discovered this forum yesterday .. Reading your story was like I wrote parts of it myself..I'm really sorry to read what is happening , obviously I have no advice I'm here for it too . My daughter has seen a pyschologist who we have been on a wait list for regular sessions which will start in January and is on a 6 months wait list for psychiatrist..I'm just treading water in the mean time ..I'm alot better now the last few months since we have a diagnosis but it's a soul destroying journey ..I also have great support from friends but no one can give me answers on how to cope or how to attempt to recreate boundaries ..I used to lock myself in my bedroom at night of fear because at her lows she was violently attacking me and threatening me now Im dealing with her going wild out partying and experimenting .I know she is now smoking pot and taking drugs but I'm just trying to stay solid and supportive because I have no clue what else to do ! I am relying on the psychologicst sessions to help us .
