Hi. I just found out about BPD while I was inpatient and my therapist/psychiatrist started thinking I had it. It's not an official diagnoses yet but from looking at the symptoms, I think I have it, especially since almost every symptom applies to me.

One of the major issues I deal with is fear of abandonment... even if it's not a "real" threat, I'm still terrified of it happening.

Before I went into inpatient last April I had a therapist I really liked. Reality-- she thought someone else dealing with BPD could help me more than she could. My thinking-- she totally abandoned me after I told her from the beginning she would and I can't be helped, since she "left" me.

Now, I'm even more terrified of my new therapist leaving me. I don't know what to do to help myself. I am currently being taught DBT skills but the fear is still very real to me.

Does anyone else have this issue?

Hi lookin4an3scape, and welcome to BPDR. I think you'll find others have that fear as well. Since you posted this in (Un)Do the Twist, have you tried to look for twistyness in your thoughts regarding this new T?
