I have BPD, major depressive disorder and dysthymia. I know exactly how you felt when you wrote and posted. I've been in therapy for 20+ years and see only a small improvement in my BPD. I, too, am a failure. Careers ruined, grad education ruined, family relationships ruined, no friends ... but my adult children and I have reconciled; I have grandchildren. I feel that the only contribution my life has made is the kids. I created life and have reared 2 kids while breaking a cycle of abuse. Unfortunately, I think the 32 y.o. is developing BPD; she also has depression.
The only reason that I have not committed suicide is that I don't want to leave a legacy of guilt and grief for the kids. Eventually, it'll happen, but when my body is as physically broken as I am mentally and emotionally. I'm looking forward to it.
