  • I was told I had a borderline personality disorder a long time ago, I was 24 ish.I went to counseling and I also was told I was manic depressive. I went on Prozac & it did help.As the yrs have gone by I went off & back on.I've gone up in dose, & eventually went on Wellbutrin, this is something that helps quit smoking as well, go figure.I stayed in therapy with a therapist for yrs.I still go as needed & I am 36. Good luck with everything.This is a good thing if you have a serious depression you will be on your way to better times soon.Hugs,take care.
