I was sitting on the steps in my house this afternoon and in a flash, I remembered one of the lowest points I reached after breaking up with the girl who I believed was THE ONE for me. It was about two months after breaking up with my Borderline disordered ex-girlfriend that I hit my lowest point.
This is a reader’s letter detailing his relationship experience with a woman suspected of having Borderline Personality Disorder.
What are the symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder? There is no easy answer to this question. There are many behaviors and traits that can be attributed to BPD, but without a professional diagnosis, you will be hard-pressed to define the problem as BPD. What are some of the common symptoms a person suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder displays?
A hoover is when your Borderline ex makes an attempt to draw you back into the cycle (relationship) with them. Remember, you were once a source for them, and in difficulty, they may come back to you looking for more (sometimes a very long time after the relationship has ended). A self-hoover is when you break no contact or nc, and contact or check-up on your Borderline Disordered ex. That’s what I did.
When a relationship ends with a Borderline, the Non is left emotionally devastated. An overwhelming emptiness remains…
Borderline Personality Disorder statistics and the thought that there are many BPD disordered people we attract. Is BPD common?
This was a completely random coincidence it seems. I had just dropped my child off at a sleepover party (this was in a town at least 30 minutes away from both my home and my ex’s). I was heading back home and pulled into the left-hand turn lane at a major intersection and there, two cars up next to me in the other turn lane was her car.
The post-breakup pain, confusion, and depression was unlike anything I had ever experienced prior. I had a previous romantic relationship that lasted 15-years that fell apart and the heartbreak was not near what I endured after the BPD ex and I broke up. Why is that?
