I am new to forums, I have a daughter who is nearly 17 and recently diagnosed BPD after nearly 3 years of progressively worsening mental health. At times she is totally irrational and I am beside myself on what to do, self harming, suicidal attempts, drinking, pot and so much anger. When she is rational she is loving and the girl she used to be. It is absolutely exhausting worrying about her all of the time. I love her so much and wish life could go back to how it used to be. This is our norm these days and when she is good I am good and when she is bad I also struggle through the fear of what next. Am hoping to possibly get some tips and tricks on how to help us both. Luckily we have a great Doc and psychologist, however hearing from others going through this may give me some new tips to try and help us both get through this.

Another good spot to find some people and get to know other carers is the Hot Chocolate thread, swing by with a hot cup of something delicious and introduce yourself there too.
