Along the Borderline PD I also have PMDD or premenstrual dysphoric disorder … usually the symptoms accentuate before my period

It’s quite possible that there’s a link b/w BPD and PMDD as Borderline tends to have plenty of comorbidity Mood disorders prevail with Axis I comorbidities: 96% of patients with BPD have a mood disorder during their life, and lifetime depression is reported at 71% to 83%.

    I deal with both as well. While its not a fun ride, it explains a lot sometimes. My mind will go into overdrive and make up situations in my head that I know aren’t occurring. Its as if my entire world is crumbling around me, yet i’m the one swinging the pick-ax, all the while blaming everyone else. I kid you not, it last for about 1-2 days, and them y period starts. Then everything make sense, my hubby and I forget the last 2 days ever hapened. But in reality, in my real mind, I know they did, and so did he. While he may forgive me, I am so scared those days – 108 in total – are going to ruin us in the long run.

Respecting Emotion & Regulating Emotion: An Introduction to Checking the Facts

Emotions are like a sixth sense because like sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell, they give us important information about our environment that we need to survive. What makes emotions so special is that they help us to act quickly when logical thought is too slow for us to engage in problem-solving. (See Situations below.) However, for people who may be unusually emotionally reactive, sensitive, or have learned to judge or invalidate their emotional sixth sense from culture, values, gender roles, parents, family, loved ones, etc., emotions may not always cause the expected effective response. Therefore, dialectical behavior therapy came up with the skill checking the facts to help us figure out if our emotional responses fit the facts and intensity of a situation and whether an unwanted or distressing emotion needs skills toward accepting and changing or skills toward accepting and tolerating.
