and my self harm. I’ve plenty of abandonment issues with my father as well. I’m just, not sure if I ought to have told him, because he didn’t ask. I guess he’s not really psychic though. But should I just keep it to myself or tell him during my next visit? :\ It won’t be for quite some time… I’m going away for a sort of vacation/holidays/to see my best friend and my boyfriend for a good 3+ months. And should I mention my worries about Borderline Personality Disorder or leave that be?
I’m so proud of you for getting help and also so happy that the meds you are on are helping with your symptoms.
I think being open to your psychiatrist about your past and current situations will help him support you to the best of his ability. So, please consider telling him about this the next time you have a session. If it is too difficult to talk about, find time during the next three months to keep a journal or write a paper to show him.
I think it’s best if you let him know your worries about BPD as well. He should be able to get you a more definite answer or have someone else answer your worries. Asking and getting that out in the open will be a weight off your mind. : ]
If anything else you want to ask/are worried about arises while you’re on vacation, please write that down as well.
Best wishes and stay strong~
