View Full Version : Experiences with parents with Borderline Personality Disorder and AD/HD

08-15-10, 12:27 AM
I have been seeing a psychologist who specialises in AD/HD. As part of my therapy we have been discussing my relationship with my mother. It was suggested to me that my mother has borderline personality disorder as well as ADD. She has since been diagnosed with ADD after seeing a psychiatrist on my reccommendation.

Does anyone here have a parent with borderline personality disorder and AD/HD. What are your experiences?

I really love my mother, but our relationship can be difficult at times. I feel like I am walking on eggshells around her. I have to be so careful to not hurt her as she takes everything personally. She has to be the centre of attention and will become very upset if people our not focusing on her enough.

I would be very interested in others experiences and any tips!!
