I've struggled with Borderline Personality Disorder and varying degrees of depression since I was a teen. It wasn't easy for me to seek help but after a long time i did a few months ago. The doc prescribed treatment for my depression but wouldn't even discuss my BPD or my trichotillomania. The anti depressants and mood stabilisers prescribed made me feel miserable and I stopped them after ten days, never went back to the doc.
I'm going through a worse phase right now with my depression but I'm hesitant to talk about the bpd again. Among other concerns I worry about requiring prolonged treatment which will be expensive And may lead to family and friends finding out about my condition. While I actually want to tell people close to me, unfortunately awareness and understanding of mental illness in our country is dismal. Please suggest if you have experience with treating BPD and what you think the best course of action is for me.

I'm always confused, I don't really know what I want to do. Things at a point are always correct thing to do, but after a point I get bored. I'm always thinking about something, always lost. Most of the time I'm at home, and when I go out at rare occasions I get so nervous to speak to people.
At this point, everyone's sorted with life and I'm here still struggling to get somewhere. What do I do?
Since last 6 months i am having frequent Muscle pain in my body specially left side (hand, arm, biceps, chest, leg)
The muscle pain comes and goes. Sometimes chest fullness, sometimes neck pain.
This causes irritation and fear for life. This also increases stress and affects day to day life. Loss of focus on work and personal life. It becomes difficult to pursue any hobby as well since these signals from body keep my mind anxious.
I tried couple of Psychiatrist and Cardio and Neurologist to diagnosis the actual cause.
However nothing could fix these problems.
I am also skeptical on using medication from Psychiatrist as i feel i will get addicted.
Kindly help to understand these symptoms and guide
My husband reacts with disproportionate anger and irritation in almost all things in daily life. He doesn't spend time with his son or wife at all, instead chooses to spend time on the net. Displays road rage when driving. Is non communicative. Reacts with anger or indifference if I try to talk to him. This has been happening with increased intensity for the past couple of months. But most of these behavior has been there for past many years now. He is 44 years old. I am 38. We have been married for 13 years. We have a 5 year old son. Both of us work. I am the primary breadwinner. my husband has never shown much inclination to assume responsibilities for providing financial security for family. He is also not invested in providing emotional support. I fear that he is suffering from depression or a personality disorder and seek to understand what's troubling him. Our son who is 5 would like to spend more time with him. We need help.
