So I need to blog about living with my husband who has recently been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. Never heard of it? Me neither until just recently. People with BPD experience such violent and frightening mood swings that they often fer for their sanity. They can be euphoric one moment and despairing and depressed the next. They have a shaky sense of identity, sudden violent outbursts, oversensitibyt to real or imagined rejection, brief turbulent love affairs, frequent periods of intense depression, eating disorders, drug abuse, and other self destructive tendencies, an irrational fear of abandonment and an inability to be alone. I have also found out that this disorder is very difficult to treat and will require intense therapy. Nope this is not what I signed up for when I walked down the aisle 12 years ago. But I did say I do to in sickness and in health so I guess this qualifies. It is a difficult thing to talk about with friends and family and so therefore I thought maybe blogging would help. Thank God for all my cyberspace friends.
