    Hi there,

    I'm new to this a slightly nervous as I don't want to be judged but I have borderline personality disorder... I am newly. diagnosed so I am still learning about my illness and I am very scared for my life. I often feel very empty and have a lot of fear of abandonment. Can anyone share some light on this disorder or throw some insight. Any help would be a great big help, many thanks!

    Hi KerrieAnne it is great that you have take the step and posting here.It is a great non judgemental place and very safe.
    I can imagine getting told you have borderline personality disorder but remember you are still the same person as you were before you were told that.
    I don't have it my self but made a friend on hospital who had it.She told me to watch the movie Girl Interrupted as this was about a girl (Winona Ryder)
    with this illness and she said it was so much like her.My friend was a very lovely caring person and imagine you are to
    Take care,
    Mark
