@Netty78, yes it can be like ground hog day until we find the right psychiatrist, an understanding GP, an effective psychologist, the right combination of meds and so the list goes on. This took me several years and my patience as well as my ability to endure was running thin. When I am well enough I spend a lot of time educating myself on everything to do with BPD, from meditation to CBT, newest research etc. I find that being informed and aware will empower us in our dealings with healthcare professionals etc. You asked for a recommendation of a good psychiatrist. I am not sure about New England District but I find that I got a much better psychiatrist when I was prepared to pay a bit more. My psychiatrist works from a private practice rather than being attached to the hospital. But I am sure you can find good ones and bad ones everywhere. Sometimes we just need a bit of luck .
