Your Nurse/Professor friend could be suffering from CRI (Cranial Rectal Insertion). I don’t think it is borderline! I think it is full blown CRI!

And her point is?

This ticks me off. I’ve been diagnosed with this for over 30 years–yeah, I’m old–and recently received another dx of the same symptoms (although lessening in severity; a few mechanisms for this decrease have been proposed). This doc called it complex PTSD. I’m Aspergerish and was bullied and ostracised as a kid. She was adamant that that was traumatic.

ADD is another possible differential diagnosis. She ought to look up advances in the diagnosis and treatment of BPD, for there is a lot going on she seems, from OP, entirely unaware of.

BPD has nine criteria, five of which must be met to establish the diagnosis. Most of these are pretty different from one another, so guess what, psych nurse: the population of BPD patients is a diverse bunch. Those of us who are aware of our symptoms as they arise often take great pains to avoid a stereotypically ‘borderline’ response when triggered or otherwise displeased. We know that to react in the moment brings, as often as not, unwelcome consequences.

Yeah, some ppl with this condition are rageful, childish and manipulative as hell, seeking to incite drama where there need be any. Many do have anxiety disorders, for any number of reasons, and so have been prescribed that one thing we all have in common: benzos. (And since benzos are so good at dysregulating thoughts and actions, I will concede that someone with BPD who is also under the influence of benzos and/or alcohol is indeed capable of creating controversy and dissent. may seek to manipulate. May effectively do so until her target chooses to act to stop it.

But I doubt that many people with BPD who do NOT use benzos come on here to p%$# people off.

Just sayin

I’ve been on benzos for about 11 years. Not slowly taper to 2MG Valium. I had severe reaction when I tapered too quick to 0- panic attacks, brain fog, insomnia, total chaos as we’ve all experienced or read about here.

I kept thinking it was withdrawal from going too fast. But now that I am back stable at 2MG I had this though that the symptoms I experience when off benzos are exactly what I experienced when I got on them in the first place. Was in a rough transition patch in life in my 30’s and had panic attacks, surreal feelings, insomnia, etc- that’s why I started to taking K and it helped.

It’s sort of a scary thought to think about- that I may have some underlying condition that requires these meds as opposed to it being only withdrawal. That is scarier to me than the thought of battling my way down from 2MG to 0.

I know people don’t like to consider this but it’s got me a bit twisted lately. After battling so hard for so long to get off I am wondering if I just need a low dose for rest of my life– which would really suck. Rock and a hard place- on them I feel lethargic and apathetic, off them is absolute hell and chaos that I can’t do for more than a few weeks.

Anyone ever consider this?

Well, I guess you should be diagnosed by at least 10 different sensible pdocs, to know if you have a chronic condition. In other words, dual diagnosis. By good pdocs, not by quacks. There’s nothing worse than a wrong diagnosis. It’s like a stigma. You keep asking yourself: “what if I have it?”, “maybe I have it?” The worse is when you start thinking and acting as though you had it. And pdocs often tend to misdiagnose ppl. There is always DSM-5 to check if your symptoms correspond to the diagnosis. A must-have. But I suggest first undergoing a thorough psychiatric evaluation before even opening this book. Ever heard of medical students who diagnose themselves with every possible condition? Actually, it’s possible to download this stuff online. I was recently diagnosed with bipolar by an “eminent” pdoc 🙂 How lovely. No one has diagnosed me with bipolar before. How come I can function without APs, mood stabilizers and have never had a single manic episode in my whole entire life? I wish I had just one… To feel really good for a day…

My son has been out of college for two years. He moved to another state to seek employment in his field . He has worked on and off in his craft . His dad and I have financially helped him make ends meet. His last visit home, long story short, we realized he was on drugs. Full disclosure is a whopping habit of 8 mg of Xanax and Subutex per day. He very much wants to stop and we want to allow him to move home to get his life back together. We want to start with a 10 day, outpatient clinic to taper him offthe Subutex (out of state place found on internet that looks reputable. We had a long talk with their doc). At the clinic they would change him over from Xanax to Valium. He would return home and taper off the Valium with the help of a psychiatrist. Could be a very long haul because as we all know Benzo withdrawal is not quick. He will still be withdrawing from Subutex too, l assume, although the drug will have been stopped after 10 days at the clinic. As long as he obeys all our rules is it OK to help him? is the first time he has asked for help with drugs although he has been on Subutex for 4 years and street Xanax for 1 year approximately. . We knew of marijuana smoking but nothing else. I want to provide but tough love. He has no other place to go because he has no money saved yet. I love him more than anything and want him to succeed. Any advice or comments? Thank you all in advance
