Thank you so much for responding. I appreciate your suggestions. I have exhausted all avenues including any of her friends. In truth, my daughter never has had many friends and is very argumentative with everyone… including family, friends, boyfriends, coworkers, bosses, EVERYONE, including the cashier at the store. I really don’t know who, if anyone is close to her at this point. My ex-husband blocked his phone and will not communicate with me. My daughter blocked her phone and is not communicating with me. She also blocked me from her social medias, deleting some of her known accounts. That’s why I had the police do a well check when I thought she was still living with her Father. I was simply told she is no longer living there, no other information was given. It’s very scary knowing that she’s out in the world somewhere and I have no idea how she’s doing? Especially since she does have challenges. I was a single parent for 20 years. (Father left when she was 3 yrs old.) I was her only care giver and primary source for her to express herself…the Good, the Bad and the Ugly! The GOOD… When she is good she is very very good! She’s a beautiful soul and can be very loving and generous with her time and emotions. The BAD… unfortunately, life gets so overwhelming for her she’s mostly living in a state of depression and anxiety. The UGLY, are times of full blown fits of hysteria which are unbearable and sometimes dangerous! I continue to pray for word that she’s honestly doing well. The only communication the family has had is her responding she’s ‘OK, I want to be left alone’ to a text in response to her Uncle. I am praying she is well and reaches out to me soon. Can anyone share with me the insights of this borderline personality disorder enough to understand why she may behaving this way? Any suggestions!?

My 26-year-old daughter was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder at 14 by a panel of 3 psychiatrists. Needless to say, her teen years were a painful roller coaster and I struggled as a single mother to raise her. She bounced in and out of counseling, and blamed me for a lot of her issues yet, always ended up saying how much he loved and appreciated me. I thought we were very close despite her wild mood swings and outbursts, until a year ago. She called to say Happy Birthday, August 2021. She was in a great mood and sang to me the Happy Birthday song. She called back later in the day and told me that she can no longer speak to me. NO EXPLANATION! Just hung up! There's been no contact whatsoever. She's blocked my phone number and also blocked me from viewing her social media accounts. She won't respond to my friends request either. She was living with my ex-husband in another state. When I reached out to him, he sent me a text he was going to block me. So I sent the Police to do a well check, I was told by the police that my daughter is no longer living with my ex-husband. No other information was given? Obviously, I am very concerned about her welfare, (having nightmares). I'm also completely confused about why this is happening. She is apparently alive because she has texted my brother stating; she's fine and wants to be left alone. Again, no explanation! A little background, my ex-husband and I divorced when she was 3 years old. He completely walked out of her life, NO CONTACT AT ALL! Never a penny, a phone call or a birthday gift, nothing for over 20 years! Then, he finally contacted her a couple of years ago when she was 23 years old. It broke my heart when I found out he made contact. She said it is her business and she had a right to get to know her father if she wanted. She was very closed mouth regarding their relationship. I thought they had very little contact until she lost her job and apartment and needed a place to stay last year. So I guess my question is what part of this behavior is the borderline personality disorder and how much is my ex-husband contributing to the situation? For the record, she denies having emotional or psychological issues. And told me never to discuss borderline personality ever again. I had bought her the books, tried many many counselors and mentioned the situation to her teachers which only enraged her more. She barely made it through high school and college, I wrote a lot of essays for her and even took some of her college online classes in order for her to graduate.) She struggles with day-to-day life, getting enraged with everyone, she cannot keep a relationship, a job, an apartment, ect. After college, she was staying with me, but my landlord 'kicked' her out because of her temper tantrums. My daughter blamed me! She moved across the country for a job and promptly lost it, which is why she ended up staying with her Father. I am at a complete loss of what to do. I pray for her every day. As a Mother, I need to know she is safe and doing well. Emotionally, I need to understand what's going on and why this break? How do we repair our relationship? I've tried to stay in faith and, "Let Go and Let God" but I am so worried and hurt! I would appreciate any insights. I have really struggled with this and I am not sure how to deal with the complete loss of my little girl! For over 20 years it was just my daughter and I, now nothing! Thank you for your thoughts.
