Is the psychosis in BPD real psychosis?

Posted by Deneb on July 23, 2005, at 17:10:23

I've been wondering about why my p-doc never recommends an AP for me. I think it is because I've never really experienced "true" psychosis...perhaps it more like an emotional explosion then psychosis. Also I don't think my p-doc is much of a "meds" person, at least not for me. We never even talk about meds.

I still have no idea how others get on so many meds. I've been really really weird with my p-doc, but she never ever freaks. There is probably nothing I can say that would get me on an AP or land me in the hospital with her :-). Plus she doesn't even have hospital privileges. :-)

The reason why I do not make rational sense during such episodes is because my emotions have overcome my reasoning abilities. This is still quite dangerous for me, but I guess it is not something meds can fix. So, I'm guessing that the "psychotic-like" symptoms in BPD is not true "psychosis." What do others think?
