> saintjames and Levi, thank you for your support and interest through this. It really helps. We just very recently learned about the Valium overdose during pregnancy so haven't had an opportunity to share with a med.or psych. professional. We've mentioned the H.C. but no one has seemed to take it too seriously. Chrissy did have some neuropsychiatric evals. done during a recent hospitalization but because she refused treatment and signed herself out of the hospital, we have not been able to obtain those results. (Frustrating!!) We live in the Pittsburgh area.
> May I add that she is in jail because my husband and I were the ones who felt we must file charges against her for theft to our home. She was refusing meds. and to continue psychotherapy. It was the ONLY way we knew to get her off the streets and hopefully, some court-ordered help. Anyone want to discuss "Tough Love"?? She has been on Depakote in the past and I feel it was helpful in controlling the mood swings. She has also been on many, many other drugs but never long enough to be effective, or to have the results accurately evaluated. Until age 13, Chrissy was a promising young violinist, dancer, artist and writer. She has been recommended for a dual-diagnosis treatment facility (drug and alcohol / bpd) but cannot be moved from jail until her sentencing on Sept. 2. Your continuing support, suggestions and insights are most appreciated. Jean

Wow; this is really among the tougher posts I've
seen here. I can only say that I was involved
romantically with a person with BPD once, and it
really opened my eyes to how brilliant, talented,
and attractive a person can be, and also how
terribly destructive being close to them can feel.
My friend is now being treated and is doing much
better in the last two years. She even is planning to
get married to her new boyfriend and this to me is
happy ending for all of us. I still worry about
her though.

I wish I could say that drug "x" is gong to work
for your daughter, but you know it isn't that
easy. As in my friends case, it really wasn't
until *she* sought out help that things turned
around. I'm glad this happened before she hurt

ANyway, good luck and hang in there...
