Unhappy Dependent Personality Disorder

I have been diagnosed with this disorder. I've had the symptoms for over 10 years now. I am 49 years old. I have no idea what to do. Suicide seems to be the only way out.

i wouldn't say so. of all the disorders, this one is not so bad. my bipolar has brought me personality disorders too. i also scored for dependent. a lot of people do, even if they never test for it. it's very common to at least score for it and it's not a killer to relationships like some other things are. there are people who like to be needed, so you make a nice fit. you don't turn into a monster every couple of years like my bipolar causes me to, and im sticking around anyway. i just have to accept that i have to make new friends over and over because im always going to make them go away eventually. same with jobs. oh well. maybe some moron will come along and stick with me for some unknown reason. one never knows! i had a friend tell me something very simple and profound. as long as i keep trying, things will get better. just try.

Yes. I agree with jessi, it isn't such a killer to relationships as others.
(I wish someone needed me...)

Suicide is never the only way out. Never give up!

Some idiot said I might have DPD just because of some other diagnoses I had. A shrink and me both agreed I didn't.


Jess, don't call your new friends morons or they WON'T stick with you... :P (Nah, I don't know. :P)
