Nice to meet you. @Shaz51 is right, there's a great bunch of people on here.
I can't recall of many people with parent who have BPD. But there are a few people on here who are parents or partners. You may want to check out this thread by @Allig. Her daughter has been diagnosed with BPD. She may be able to give you some advice around how to respond to your mum's behaviour. In that thread @Makettle also talks about some of the hardships of providing support for their son.
Thanks all I have jumped on that thread. Do you always feel you have to explain everything from the beginning so you can justify why you have come to this decision. I could give you pages of examples of what we go through time and again just so that I dont feel like I'm making this up. But in reality I know its not us because there are to many others who see this in her. Its a constant daily struggle.
We are a blended family of twenty years and have just had our 23yr old Daughter diagnosed with Scizoaffective disorder with Bi Polar1, and are researching the hell out of the condition in order to best help her in her recovery and get her back on her journey in life.
We are Bushy's in a very rural area, two hours travel away from the Hospital.
We are scared for our girl.
This only happens to other people right ? Or so we thought.
Have had a read of some of the recent personal storys shared here on the Forums and have gained more information here in an hour or so reading than we have in the over two weeks since our daughter was admitted from the Doctors currently treating her.
