1. Loving kindness meditation is the best thing I’ve found for my guilt. They teach it in DBT.

  2. I’m on 2mg about to finish my first month at this dose (started at 1mg) I have no idea if it’s working. My headspace certainly feels different but idk if this different is helping so I asked for another adjustment starting next month. I take it at night, I tried to take it during the day to see if that’ll help change anything and I felt terrible which is weird cause I usually don’t feel terrible at night (it keeps me up at night super strange) it doesn’t really make me irritable but at times it does make me very uninterested in anything anyone has to say. where before medicine I was alwayssss talking to people and being concerned about their well being (not really my own well being which was a issue) and trying to help them. The only side effect I really have is occasional confusion.

  3. I stopped taking it. I became increasingly agitated and felt terrible after the first week. I thought it was helping at first

  4. Could be the wrong medication. I have a slew of diagnoses: ADHD, OCD, depression, borderline personality disorder…

  5. 1,000mg seems to be my sweet spot. Just seems like I can’t take it everyday.

  6. PREACH 💯! The worst part is that there’s stigma within the mental health system. We are suppose to see these people for help- but instead, I spent years over medicated, tossed around the system because of a wrong diagnosis, because “men don’t have BPD”. I’ve heard so much BS I could write a book based off the shit I’ve heard about BPD.

  7. Look into red light therapy on Amazon, they have cheap models to try out. It'll help you get vit D and Red light therapy is thought to work by acting on the “power plant” in your body's cells called mitochondria. With more energy, other cells can do their work more efficiently, such as repairing skin, boosting new cell growth and enhancing skin rejuvenation. I can't take is Zinc, everytime I've taken it I threw up.

  8. Thank you for your suggestion. Light therapies do not have UV light, which is crucial for vitamin D production. Plus I already use a bright light SAD box for my seasonal depression

  9. Absolutely relate to this. Early into childhood it was made clear to me that my feelings never mattered. Negative emotions weren’t allowed to be shown. If I tried to talk to my parents about being bullied at school, I was told to suck it up and stop being so sensitive. If I got sick or injured and cried, I was told to shut up and stop being a hypochondriac.

  10. These comments make me feel so sad I’m so sorry you guys have had to go through this 😭

  11. This resonates with me a whole lot. I also spent all of my childhood getting shut down and shit on by those around me. It took me a long time to start knowing things I like and want to do.. So when people start invalidating the way I feel, which is one of the few things that is important enough to me to speak to others about,, I have a strong and immediate reaction.

  12. No need to apologize :D I enjoy reading tangents. I feel sad to hear that you experienced chronic invalidation because I am familiar with the feeling. :(

  13. My local herbal shop has an "herbal coffee" blend made of danelion root, chicory root, carob chips, organic cherry bark, cocoa nibs, and cinnamon chips. I can send a link if youd like to take a look, they do ship out. I cant attest to how similar it actually tastes to coffee though.

  14. What do you mean the pharmacy usually doesn’t have it? If they know you’re on a medication, they typically order it for you when you run out.

  15. This poor woman. My heart hurts for her. Leave Britney alone!!!! She’s not a goddamn circus animal.

  16. I’ve been taking it without any “co-factor” and I’m fine. I can’t tolerate oral magnesium or higher dose d3. I’m taking 2000iu and I’m not having any problems.

  17. K2 is suppose to regulate where the calcium goes but I haven’t had any issues without it. I just can’t tolerate larger doses of vitamin D. Then everyone preaches about magnesium lol maybe I just need a lower dose of vitamin D

  18. I didn’t feel awesome until my hgb was 11, and ferritin was 120. In terms of oral supplementation, if you don’t have malabsorption or bleeding issues of any sort, expect 4-6 months with daily supplementation.

  19. Yeah. You can also ask for an iron infusion. Then that’s 4-6 weeks after a 1-dose infusion. If you do get one, make sure your vitamin D and Phosphate levels are good beforehand, or the iron flu is a bitch.

  20. Thanks- I don’t think my primary care doctor even thinks I have an iron deficiency because all of my labs were within “normal” range. My ferritin was on the borderline (23.9), from what I read that is an iron deficiency. At first they told me to eat more meat, but obviously that’s not doing anything.

  21. Vitron-C saved my life. I take 2 (130mg) every other night on an empty stomach. Raised my ferritin quickly.

  22. I went away with my ex and saw his toothbrush for the first time. It had black mould growing on it and the bristles were so flat the toothbrush had a middle parting. I had a conversation with him about hygiene and told him to get a new toothbrush but when I stayed at his house two weeks later the cursed toothbrush was still I ended it.

  23. As someone who isn’t bpd but in dbt(3rd round), I would like to make some suggestions, you do not have to do them. Everyone should be doing these, bpd or not. First one, it’s nice to make sure the person actually has the capability to be vented to before you start venting. Second, you should communicate what you need, for ex: “hey, the way you could help me right now is by validating me, I would really appreciate that!”. That way they actually know what you are looking for and can best tend to your needs.

  24. Thanks. This is about my FP. It’s stonewalling, ignoring, and overall when I tell them how I feel, they make it my fault some how. They lack I statements. All of this shit triggers tf out of my abandonment issues and I spiral, and suddenly im the asshole for “overreacting”. I’ve literally told of them this.

  25. Oh wait, you just joined this sub today to call EVERYONE with BPD abusive. Checked your comment history.

  26. That's fine, assuming your dietician isn't also wrong. Y'all remember the food pyramid? Sure is strange how there was an up rise in obesity and diabetes just a few years after the introduction of the food pyramid.

  27. 🤣 The food pyramid is what they showed me in middle school. I’m sure a registered dietician is gonna know more about nutrition compared to the food pyramid. Strange how ever registered dietician is thin and in perfect health…. Hmmm..

  28. Has he taken Dexedrine, vyvanse, focalin, or Azstarys? What happened with guanfacine?
