Frequently Asked Questions
What information do you know about Borderline Personality Disorder?
I've heard about a being a functional borderline, but what exactly is it?
Definition of a High-Functioning Borderline: People with high functioning Borderline Personality Disorder may have the same problem with rage that low functioning borderlines do; however, they may just have the ability to hide it better they may do their raging at home rather than in public.
High functioning borderlines are the ones who fool everyone into thinking that they are normal, reserving their extreme borderline behaviors for their close friends and family. On the surface, these people appear to function well in society and in the majority of areas in their lives. They are frequently employed as professionals such as: psychiatrists, social workers, therapists, nurses, or otherwise involved in the health care industry.
Other high functioning borderlines do very well in the military/prison system or places where they are in control of those around them, such as: military officers, prison guards, police officers, or as customs officers. Because of the black-and-white thinking characteristic of Borderline Personality Disorder, these people believe the work they are doing is good, and, therefore, it makes them a good person.
Indications of a Low-Functioning Borderline:
-self-mutilation (self-injury, cutting, etc.)
-excessive risk taking, such as:
a) numerous and near-fatal traffic accidents
b) extreme addictions (gambling, sex, danger, etc.)
c) substance abuse and misuse
d) sexual promiscuity and risky sexual practices
-successive and frequent non-completed suicide attempts
-inability to maintain employment
-extreme instability in interpersonal relationships
-extreme anger, rage and violent behavior beginning in adolescence (or earlier)
-prolonged involvement with criminal justice system and prison
Most of the children that have been seen in group home settings and psychiatric institutions with a history of the above are female more often than male, and may have a diagnosis of one of the personality disorders.
Rage appears to be a behavior of all those with Borderline Personality Disorder. The intensity of the rage may vary some, but it is still a constant. This may be more problematic with low functioning borderlines, as they seem to have less inhibition control, and are more prone to public rages in front of many witnesses.
If you want to learn more, the book listed in my sources is amazing and will tell you everything you ever want to know (or don't want to know) about Borderline Personality Disorder. It's a great book for those who live with a Borderline or for Borderlines themselves.
how do you get rid of porn creep?
I am having problems with a member of my family watching way too much porn, it has affected their life in a very negative way, and is affecting their relationships with others, how do you get rid of this?
Anything that makes you feel good can get you addicted, especially if you have a personality that is prone to addiction.
If you feel the family member is addicted to porn, they have to understand themselves that they are addicted. Some people don t believe that you can t be addicted to things that are not some sort of drug, which is untrue.
Most drugs raise dopamine levels in the brain, which is how they addict you. Anything ELSE that raises dopamine levels can also addict you. It s usually not the thing it s self, as much as what it does for you.
Many people can look at porn, and can still take it or leave it, but when the person can t leave it, by definition- they are addicted.
The fact that they won t even try to set it down for a while is proof they are addicted.
They will give reasons like
I don t have to put it down because I am not addicted
You are not the boss of me, I refuse to be pushed around, so to defy you, and I am going to keep it up .
Which is just them justifying a reason not to try.
A person, who can actually take it or leave it, would not use these reasons to argue not to, since it would be no big thing, they would just put it aside.
If the person has a manipulative personality, they will agree to your face, and then sneak it behind your back, and then when confronted, give reasons like above.
They have to understand their grief at giving up the porn is a sign they are addicted, if they could really take it or leave it, they would not be so defensive.
Treat it as you would any addiction.
are certain types of adolescents prone to drug abuse?
Are certain types of adolescents more prone to drug abuse than others?
I need websites or answers?
Drug abuse can be experimentation or it can be hard core addiction. Depends on your definition. However, any kid may be prone to experimentation. I know plenty of kids in my day that experimented and used drugs recreationally without ruining their lives. Hard addictions can be caused by an addictive personality, which can be hard to spot before it is too late, or a kid with a lot of turmoil in his life and they use for escape. Family problems, socializing problems, pressures to excel, physical abuse, sexual abuse and so on. All these things can exacerbate the potential for addiction but when it comes right down to it, it depends on the character of the kid. I believe that kids, the same as adults, will chose a healthier path if they see hope for their lives and the possibility of success. Example: a middle class kid may see that they can go to college and get a good job and live as well or better than their parents. A kid in the ghetto may not see a way to get beyond the neighborhood for any number of reasons. Who is more desperate for excape?
Define Addiction Prone Personality?
There are a lot of definitions out there, and I've included one below, but it all comes down to one thing, really. Addiction-prone people seek pleasure or distraction from the pain of existence, so for them, existence is painful. It takes two things to create the mental climate, inside a person's own mind, for addictions to thrive - a sense of need, and a feeling of entitlement. Feeling bad will not make a person use drugs or food, sex or shopping abusively, or to excess. Believing that they have the right to feel good is part of what makes addicts abuse their drugs of choice. Addictions stand on a foundation of selfishness, where the addict's euphoria is more important than any other consideration, including the health and welfare of their families and themselves.
what is a sociopath?
I think my mother may well be a sociopath, but i need a definition as to what a sociopath is.
Sociopath and antisocial personality disorder are the same thing.
People with an antisocial personality, most of whom are male, show callous disregard for the rights and feelings of others. Dishonesty and deceit permeate their relationships. They exploit others for material gain or personal gratification (unlike narcissistic people, who exploit others because they think their superiority justifies it).
Characteristically, people with an antisocial personality act out their conflicts impulsively and irresponsibly. They tolerate frustration poorly, and sometimes they are hostile or violent. Often they do not anticipate the negative consequences of their antisocial behaviors and, despite the problems or harm they cause others, do not feel remorse or guilt. Rather, they glibly rationalize their behavior or blame it on others. Frustration and punishment do not motivate them to modify their behaviors or improve their judgment and foresight but, rather, usually confirm their harshly unsentimental view of the world.
People with an antisocial personality are prone to alcoholism, drug addiction, sexual deviation, promiscuity, and imprisonment. They are likely to fail at their jobs and move from one area to another. They often have a family history of antisocial behavior, substance abuse, divorce, and physical abuse. As children, many were emotionally neglected and physically abused. People with an antisocial personality have a shorter life expectancy than the general population. The disorder tends to diminish or stabilize with age.
Can doctors do testing to find out why my stomach rejects alcohol?
When I was younger 17-18 I probably drank 3-5 times. Each time I had maybe 4 drinks (vodka and orange juice, these were less strong than a typical screwdriver "recipe" on google) and this was just enough to get me drunk. Never blacked out or passed out or had a hang over. I didn't drink for maybe a year or so after that. When I tried to have an alcoholic drink my stomach would reject it. I'd get a stomach ache after one drink and throw up if I had another. I've tried beer, wine, and vodka and it's the same with all of them. I'm only 20 and a half right now so I know I'm still a minor and shouldn't be drinking. I never ever party. I just like to have a few drinks with a couple close friends and be silly. My questions are: 1) Does anyone understand why my body rejects it so quickly when I didn't have a problem before? 2) When I turn 21 would a doctor be able to determine the exact reason such as an allergy? When I turn 21 I want to be able to go out to the clubs and go dancing and be able to have a drink. I wanna be able to have a beer with the guys. I wanna be able to celebrate with wine. It's not the end of the world if I can't drink; it would just be nice to have a reason why.
At 20; you're no longer considered a minor. or a teen. ( 19 is the cut off age). Even though, 21 is the considered legal age for drinking or voting.; being 20 makes you an adult. .
There are many reasons why you have a stomachache and vomit after consumption of an alcoholic drink. You might have a food intolerance or food allergy. There is a battery of tests that you can take to determine if you have an allergy towards alcohol.
On average, alcohol can be irritating to an empty stomach. The consumption of alcohol in empty stomach, lack of sleep, psychosocial factors, increased physical activities while drinking, dehydration and poor health are some of the stimulating causes for hangover. Children of alcoholic parents are more prone to hangover symptoms than the children of non-alcoholic parents. Ethanol in alcohol has a dehydrating effect that results in headache, dry mouth and lethargy.
Or if you drink too much and too fast. or if you mix different alcoholic drinks. Avoid drinks with a high alcohol content. Steer away from dark drinks with a high congeres.and shooters of tequila. Clear drinks have lesser alcohol content.e.g. screwdriver. Pace your self. Drink about 1 drink per hour to allow alcohol metabolism In other words, drink slowly. Alternate drinking; with water or fruit juice. to rehydrate yourself. Alcohol is a diuretic. Before drinking, eat a light meal consisting of pasta, bread; or a fruits such as bananas. Eat a toast before retiring. Take Vit B and C.
If you drink regularly, and in moderation; you can slowly increase your alcohol tolerance level. You can take OTC Benadryl to counteract the allergic effects.
Draft beer and wine have a lower alcohol content than the hard liquor such as scotch; tequila, whiskey; bourbon,etc.
Remember, you should drink responsibly and in moderation. Do not drink and drive. There's a lot of fatal traffic accidents committed by intoxicated teens. You can also get a citation. That's why it's wise to avoid excessive alcohol consumption.
Alcohol is a drug. Alcohol can lead to alcohol addiction. It can create a lot of problems. You don't need to drink or become drunk in order to dance and have fun. When you are drunk; you might act silly. and say a lot of idiotic things. You can make a fool of yourself as alcohol can carve a lot of your inhibitions away. You might engage in unprotected sex
An occasional drink can be harmless. .Prolonged years of drinking can destroy brain cells.... the white matter. It can contribute to mood swings and personality changes.
Hangover is a combined attack of the repulsive physical effects after the heavy consumption of the alcohol. Although there is no precise definition for the hangover, alcoholics will suffer it when they have hangover. The socio-economic impact of the alcohol hangovers is very significant. In general alcohol hangover involves any of the following symptoms: headache, poor sense of overall well-being, sensitivity to light and sound, diarrhea, loss of appetite, trembling, nausea, fatigue, increased heart rate and blood pressure, dehydration (dry mouth, extreme thirst, dry eyes), trouble in concentrating, anxiety, difficulty in sleeping and weakness. These hangover symptoms vary from person to person, and occasion to occasion, usually beginning after hours of alcohol consumption.
Alcohol can lead to intoxication and alcohol poisoning. It can make you gain weight. Do not mix alcohol with any meds esp antibiotics. . While one to two drinks a day have been shown to confer many health benefits, upping that amount can decrease mental and physical abilities.
Hangover & Preventions
The first and foremost thing that you can do to prevent hangover is to avoid excessive alcohol consumption.
You have to take the drinks in accordance with your weight and health.6 drinks in an 80kg person and 3-5 drinks in a 60kg person will definitely result in hangover.
It is scientifically proved that men can hold more alcohol than women. So, women, do not compete men, even if you are of the same height and weight.
Do not mix different types of drinks.
You must not take alcohol in empty stomach. An empty stomach will stimulate the absorption of alcohol in the blood stream.
Do not drink while using sauna. Sauna and alcohol do not blend together and will lead to serious health crisis
