I was diagnosed with Borderline when I was in a mental hospital and sat under the desk in my room for 2 days without eating and got put on suicide watch.

My main symptoms are extreme anger, rapidly destabilized personal relationships, feelings of abandonment/emptiness and impulsiveness (primarily with substance abuse). I cope by simply taking my medication. I take 2 anti depressants, Remeron and Paxil, both high doses and they keep me relatively stable.

My advice is as follows. Go to a psychiatrist and get on the appropriate medications for your Bipolar and BPD. Prayer might make you feel better for a bit, but God isn't going to answer your questions as to why; nor is he going to make your illness go away or make it easier to cope with. These disorders are organic, based in the brain and are understood by science; and thus a scientific approach (medicine) is the appropriate way to deal with them.

If you were diabetic, you'd take insulin wouldn't you? If you had a heart condition or cancer, you'd take medication wouldn't you? You're disease is just in a different organ, the brain. When you learn to look at it that way, you'll be able to take the steps necessary to get better.
