Question regarded "diagnosed" when reading posts. I'm a little confused as to how to take the usage of that term. Generally speaking, is diagnosed anticipated to be used only when the BP partner has received a formal diagnosis or is also used when one party has been told that the others behavior is most-likely to be? And so on.

Diagnosed generally means a clinician seeing the person first hand has suggested BPD - formally or informally.  A third party dx is uBPD.

Does that help?

one more clarification needed:  flea?  thanks. sadlou

Whenever I see this question, I think of Edith, my volunteer for a decade or more. As far as I know, she was the first one to use this term with the adult children in my own online group. She died in 2005 from cancer and I still miss her a whole lot. Randi

Thank you for this thread.

I am not comfortable with labels, as I am not a doctor specializing in this area.

I suppose I can see, in so much of what I've read, my husband... that there is a real possibility that I could reduce him to the abbreviation of ustbxBPDh.

I don't see the same similarities in me.

I'll know how to abbreviate myself as soon as my testing is complete.

As he's accused me of having BPD - I am going to get a professional diagnosis.

Thanks again.

Is it perhaps INTP? which means

Introverted Intuitive Thinking Perceiving, a Myers-Briggs personality type?

This may help... .the percentages are interesting... .

The Myers-Briggs typology model regards personality type as similar to left or right handedness: individuals are either born with, or develop, certain preferred ways of thinking and acting. The MBTI sorts some of these psychological differences into four opposite pairs, or "dichotomies," with a resulting 16 possible psychological types. None of these types is "better" or "worse"; however, Briggs and Myers theorized that individuals naturally prefer one overall combination of type differences.[1]:9 In the same way that writing with the left hand is hard work for a right-hander, so people tend to find using their opposite psychological preferences more difficult, even if they can become more proficient (and therefore behaviorally flexible) with practice and development.

The 16 different types are often referred to by an abbreviation of four letters, the initial letters of each of their four type preferences (except in the case of iNtuition, which uses N to distinguish it from Introversion). For instance:

    * ESTJ - Extraversion, Sensing, Thinking, Judging

    * INFP - Introversion, iNtuition, Feeling, Perceiving

And so on for all 16 possible type combinations.

Recycling:

Please read our Workshop here:

https://bpdfamily.com/message_board/index.php?topic=95860.0;all


"Splitting" or "painting black or white" occurs when someone with BPD moves from believing that someoen is all good (white) then all bad (black), then perhaps back to all good again.   

Please read the Workshop here:

https://bpdfamily.com/message_board/index.php?topic=62033.0;all


We have a good article about "No contact" also

Residential Treatment Center or Residential Treatment Facility

A full-scale residential treatment center is designed to treat and educate children and adolescents who are not succeeding in school or in life in general. The primary reason for a child being placed in one shouldn't be driven solely by a school-based problem, but rather by behaviors and mental health issues that are impairing his or her ability to function appropriately in most or all aspects of daily life.

I've seen some other terms in posts and not sure what they mean.  What does re-engaging mean?

I've figured out most of the abbreviations here, except one: FOO. What's it mean?

not really a borderline term...

fishermen troll ususally dragging a net or something like that... .and drag the bottom of the ocean... to catch anything... .they can...


applying it to a person with BPD

would be going to a singles bar... or surfing a dating site... .for anyone to be with... .with no real inttention of being picky... .just the first person who talked to them would do... .

Trolling and Trolls are Internet slang terms - not sure it has a precise definition.

Found this definition online:

Trolling - and act of appearing on Internet forums and boards with malicious intent.  Trolling includes... .

-purposely inciting people to flame at you

-putting the forum down and encouraging people to leave.

-flaming

-spamming

-using several identities on a board to support your own arguments / stage pretend arguments

-generally being a dick on a power trip or because you can get away with it

Some trolls claim their actions benefit others.

Toxic recycling is related to excessive make-up/break-up cycles in a relationship.  After 2, one should start asking why they keep going back.

These abbreviations are for newbies posting on the new member board .  The abbreviations identify the category of newbie (the relationship of the person with BPD in the new members life) so that regular members can more quickly identify people to help.  These abbreviations also identify newbies in the "unread posts" lists so that we all know there is somene new that needs our help.

When you see these designations - please show your support.
