Hey Maxime, there's no reason to feel ashamed of the borderline dx. I understand that there's a stigma among medical people that don't like to deal with "borderline" patients. But there's no reason why having the borderline dx should affect the way you are treated for suicidal depression, etc. They are somewhat separate issues. I was embarrassed to admit I was depressed, then to admit that I was suicidal, and then to admit that I needed inpatient treatment. Then I realized that I don't really care what nurses/doctors think of me. They are there to provide a service that I'm in need of. I don't need to impress them or have them like me. If I feel they aren't providing adequate care/treatment, I will mention it. I'm tired of feeling like I need to be ashamed and submissive for having a mental illness. Sorry for the tirade. I just don't want you to feel shame for something that isn't your fault, and isn't really shameful at all. I certainly don't think any less of you. I think you're pretty courageous and resilient for dealing with some of your issues, and not giving up/giving in.
