I accidentally asked the same question twice instead of posting a comment
Expert:  ravikumarr replied 16 days ago.

The diagnosis needs a detailed discussion. It really can't be made over texting. What makes you think you have it. Have you been diagnosed with it before?

Looking for a second opinion on bpd diagnosis. Don’t really feel like it makes much sense. I’ve had issues since as young as six(vivid hallucinations) was described as uncomfortably quiet by my own mum as a child (not until recently). Have struggled with mental health all my teenage and adult life.No major traumas, no trauma what do ever before the age of 6. Suffering from intense low moods, intense highs, constant panic attacks. All with no real triggers. I don’t think bpd fits me at all. The psychiatrist I seen told me I was not depressed even though I have 24 hour thoughts of wanting to end my own life, and literally a quick google of clinical depression describes how I feel. She also told me I had emotionally unstable personality disorder instead of saying bpd

Can’t afford to call.
Expert:  ravikumarr replied 16 days ago.

That's fine. Happy to text. Any anti depressants tried?

Expert:  ravikumarr replied 16 days ago.

Worth a trial,  it makes changes to the chemical signaling in the brain and can really help

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
citalpram, setraline, martazapene(i think) fuoxiteen and trazadone. I can’t remember not being on an anti depressant. All I know is I still wanted to die and couldn’t go a few hours without a panic attack

I get mental health is just crazy, but everyone I’ve spoken too says borderline personality disorder just doesn’t make sense with me

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

I apologise as we have not yet been able to find a Professional to assist you. Do you wish for me to continue to search for someone to assist you or would you like for us to close your question at this time?
Thank you for your patience,

Your symptoms do suggest that this is an unstable personality rather than a proper BPD,

Again, working with your mental health professional would be the key,

Do consider taking high dose Vit D & probiotics, it may help a lot too,

warm regards
