    My borderline dilemmas

    Hi,

    As many of you know I am bpd, and have ptsd, between the two of them and my SO working 11-7, I am very scared. Afraid of the night and afraid of being alone.

    I know he has to work, and it seems I've been trapped with this emptiness for his 3 years at working here. It pays good, but he takes many nights off to be with me thru fmla. I just panic on his way out the door.

    I'm lost and alone. I don't feel sorry for myself, I'm just terrified. That is why I came here.

    Does anyone relate to either the abandonment, alone feeling?
    I can't go anywhere cause it's night and I have agoraphobia anyway, unless with him. And no one to talk to and I am bipolar 1. So my mind races. I tried to sleep thru it, but then I'm up during the day while he sleeps and can't make any noise. Plus I sleep with mace and a knife and one eye open. my dogs do help some. Esp brandi.



    oh poooooooo

    Re: My borderline delimmas

    I tried to post earlier and I don't know what happened. I messed it up somehow.

    I don't have bpd. I might have ptsd. I haven't been diagnosed with it yet.

    I can relate to this:

    Night is very hard for me at times. I cannot sleep and even thinking about sleep makes my heart race and makes me feel very anxious. Sometimes it isn't so bad. I try to distract myself by watching tv until I fall asleep. Probably not the best thing to do. I can't take any medications right now so I'm just kind of stuck sometimes not really sleeping.

    I guess I don't have any advice, but I can relate.

    Re: My borderline delimmas

    janet have you tried using relaxation techniques or meditation/yoga tapes to listen to to help you fall asleep? not sure if this is helpful but it's a thought. others might be able to refer you to material you could use (i don't have anything specific to point you to).
