also feel free to post in here even if you don't have a palindromic post count. but make sure that if you're going to make a post that will make your post count turn to a palindrome, do it in here.

Edit: 4 posts left.

Waldo Jeffers had reached his limit. It was now mid-August which meant that he had been separated from Marsha for more than two months. Two months, and all he had to show were three dog-eared letters and two very expensive long-distance phone calls. True, when school had ended and she'd returned to Wisconsin and he to Locust, Pennsylvania she had sworn to maintain a certain fidelity. She would date occasionally, but merely as amusement. She would remain faithful. But lately Waldo had begun to worry.

He had trouble sleeping at night and when he did, he had horrible dreams.He lay awake at night, tossing and turning underneath his printed quilt protector, tears welling in his eyes, as he pictured Marsha, her sworn vows overcome by liquor and the smooth soothings of some Neanderthal, finally submitting to the final caresses of sexual oblivion. It was more than the human mind could bear. Visions of Marsha's faithlessness haunted him. Daytime fantasies of sexual abandon permeated his thoughts. And the thing was, they wouldn't understand who she really was. He, Waldo, alone, understood this. He had intuitively grasped every nook and cranny of her psyche. He had made her smile, and she needed him, and he wasn't there.

The idea came to him on the Thursday before the Mummers Parade was scheduled to appear. He had just finished mowing and edging the Edelsons lawn for a dollar-fifty, and had checked the mailbox to see if there was at least a word from Marsha. There was nothing but a circular form the Amalgamated Aluminum Company of America inquiring into his awning needs. At least they cared enough to write. It was a New York company. You could go anywhere in the mails.

Then it struck him: he didn't have enough money to go to Wisconsin in the accepted fashion, true, but why not mail himself? It was absurdly simple. He would ship himself parcel post special delivery.

The next day Waldo went to the supermarket to purchase the necessary equipment. He bought masking tape, a staple gun and a medium sized cardboard box, just right for a person of his build. He judged that with a minimum of jostling he could ride quite comfortably. A few air holes, some water, a selection of midnight snacks, and it would probably be as good as going tourist.

By Friday afternoon, Waldo was set. He was thoroughly packed and the post office had agreed to pick him up at three o'clock. He'd marked the package "FRAGILE" and as he sat curled up inside, resting in the foam rubber cushioning he'd thoughtfully included, he tried to picture the look of awe and happiness on Marsha's face as she opened the door, saw the package, tipped the deliverer, and then opened it to see her Waldo finally there in person. She would kiss him, and then maybe they could see a movie. If he'd only thought of this before. Suddenly rough hands gripped the package and he felt himself borne up. He landed with a thud in a truck and then he was off.

Marsha Bronson had just finished setting her hair. It had been a very rough weekend. She had to remember not to drink like that. Bill had been nice about it though. After it was over he'd said that he still respected her and, after all, it was certainly the way of nature and even though no, he didn't love her, he did feel an affection for her. And after all, they were grown adults. Oh, what Bill could teach Waldo -- but that seemed many years ago. Sheila Klein, her very, very best friend walked in through the porch screen door into the kitchen.

"Oh God, it's absolutely maudlin outside."
"Ugh, I know what you mean, I feel all icky." Marsha tightened the belt on her cotton robe with the silk outer edge. Sheila ran her finger over some salt grains on the kitchen table, licked her finger and made a face. "I'm supposed to be taking these salt pills, but," she wrinkled her nose, "they make me feel like throwing up." Marsha started to pat herself under the chin, an exercise she'd seen on television.

"God, don't even talk about that." She got up from the table and went to the sink where she picked up a bottle of pink and blue vitamins. "Want one? Supposed to be better than steak," and attempted to touch her knees. "I don't think I'll ever touch a daiquiri again." She gave up and sat down, this time nearer the small table that supported the telephone. "Maybe Bill'll call," she said to Sheila's glance.

Sheila nibbled on a cuticle. "After last night, I thought maybe you'd be through with him."
"I know what you mean. My God, he was like an octopus. Hands all over the place." She gestured, raising her arms upward in defense. "The thing is after a while, you get tired of fighting with him, you know, and after all he didn't really do anything Friday and Saturday, so I kind of owed it to him, you know what I mean." She started to scratch.
Sheila was giggling with her hand over her mouth. "I'll tell you, I felt the same way, and even after a while," she bent forward in a whisper, "I wanted to", and now she was laughing very loudly.

It was at this point that Mr. Jameson of the Clarence Darrow Post Office rang the door bell of the large stucco colored frame house. When Marsha Bronson opened the door, he helped her carry the package in. He had his yellow and his green slips of paper signed and left with a fifteen-cent tip that Marsha had gotten out of her mothers small beige pocket book in the den.

"What do you think it is?" Sheila asked.
Marsha stood with her arms folded behind her back. She stared at the brown cardboard carton that sat in the middle of the living room. "I don't know."

Inside the package Waldo quivered with excitement as he listened to the muffled voices. Sheila ran her fingernail over the masking tape that ran down the center of the carton. "Why don't you look at the return address and see who it is from?"

Waldo felt his heart beating. He could feel the vibrating footsteps. It would be soon.

Marsha walked around the carton and read the ink-scratched label. "Ugh, God, it's from Waldo!"
"That schmuck," said Sheila. Waldo trembled with expectation. "Well, you might as well open it," said Sheila. Both of them tried to lift the stapled flap.

"Ahh, shit," said Marsha groaning. "He must have nailed it shut." They tugged at the flap again. "My God, you need a power drill to get this thing opened." They pulled again. "You can't get a grip!"
They both stood still, breathing heavily.
"Why don't you get the scissors," said Sheila. Marsha ran into the kitchen, but all she could find was a little sewing scissor. Then she remembered that her father kept a collection of tools in the basement. She ran downstairs and when she came back, she had a large sheet-metal cutter in her hand.
"This is the best I could find." She was very out of breath. "Here, you do it. I'm gonna die." She sank into a large fluffy couch and exhaled noisily.

Sheila tried to make a slit between the masking tape and the end of the cardboard, but the blade was too big and there wasn't enough room.
"God damn this thing!" she said feeling very exasperated. Then, smiling, "I got an idea."
"What?" said Marsha.
"Just watch," said Sheila touching her finger to her head.

Inside the package, Waldo was so transfixed with excitement that he could barely breathe. His skin felt prickly from the heat and he could feel his heart beating in his throat. It would be soon. Sheila stood quite upright and walked around to the other side of the package. Then she sank down to her knees, grasped the cutter by both handles, took a deep breath and plunged the long blade through the middle of the package, through the middle of the masking tape, through the cardboard, through the cushioning and "THUD" right through the center of Waldo Jeffers head, which split slightly and caused little rhythmic arcs of red to pulsate gently in the morning sun.

The answers you have given suggest that you may in fact have to deal with a borderline personality disorder (BPD) according to the indicators outlined in the DSM manual. The additional presence of secondary indicators associated with BPD make this result look pretty reliable.

The answers you have given suggest that most likely, you are not affected by a borderline personality disorder.
However, your personality seems to have some aspects of neurotic components that may at least occasionally lead to problems in your social relationships, particularly with love relationships and possibly also complicate your professional life.

Here's the thing with BPD:

It is hard to describe in symptoms. There is a distinct pattern that people with BPD tend to have in relationships with people, hobbies, and basically everything which is idealization and devaluation.

At first a person is the best person ever. They are perfect for you. They are the best therapist ever. They are the best manager ever. Etc etc.

Then within a relatively short amount of time, they are the most terrible therapist ever and you hate them. They play mind games with you, so you will play them back. You hate them and the hate makes you want to hurt yourself so you tell them you will and it is their fault. When they confront you, you run away and completely devalue them and never talk about it.

This is just a generic example.

I don't have time to explain this more right now.

Yes BPD is often used as a catch all diagnosis for "difficult clients" and is very often misdiagnosed IMO. However, there is a distinct syndrome that does exist. Again IMO.

If you think you have BPD I would talk to a therapist about it and if their first instinct is to refer you to someone else you should take that as a sign they don't have the time and/or inclination to deal with complex cases.

yes she already determined you don't have it if she diagnosed you as having bipolar disorder.

I mean you could have both but an ethical therapist would tell you your diagnoses upfront, even if it's a highly stigmatized one like BPD.

When I was less stable I would have fit the diagnosis more, but a lot of the symptoms overlap with PTSD and dissociative disorders and I've had trauma specialists who know the difference. Generally it is easy to see in a therapeutic relationship because there are a lot of interpersonal signs that are common in therapy and that therapist see over and over in clients who have BPD.

i worked with a person with this, apparently

OMG I'M SO EXCITED THIS IS GONNA BE THE BEST AND I'M GOING TO BE THE BEST AND EVERYTHING IS THE BEST
and it's this really forced, over the top, like ohgod stop already (also the job was horrible) kind of cringe factor to it. early in the morning her forced, loud, braying laugh would be like the flame to my rage kettle

and then later she'd be over at your desk talking about all the mind games and conspiracies in place to prevent her from getting a raise

Yes and it's quite crazymaking when it's directed at you. I had someone fairly recently do it to me and it just left me speechless and I had to cut off contact. It sucks because we could talk about PTSD related things but she was too unstable to have a deep friendship with and when she accused me of gaslighting her I had to get out.

After all that's happened to me it's amazing that I only have some traits. I'm lucky that I somehow disconnected from reality with dissociation more than compensating with borderline coping mechanisms like splitting.

It's sad because the very thing they are afraid of (abandonment) is brought on by their symptoms and becomes self fulfilling. Unlike other cluster B personality disorders they mainly hurt themselves and it's very sad.

That being said there is treatment and those that survive to middle age tend to improve a lot.
