Living In The Third Degree With BPD

Living In The Third Degree With BPD

By Brad S.
This podcast is about my experiences of having a wife of 34 years diagnosed with BPD. I talk about the turmoil, challenges and frustrations of my relationship and raising a family when BPD is present.
** I do not have any professional experience with mental health all my knowledge is from my own research and living with someone with BPD. If you love someone who has BPD, remember...
“Love and understand them, because they find it so hard to understand and love themselves” - 2020 Brad

#50 Honey You Foiled My Plan!!!
This is a few tips and tricks you can try to use that work for me when you're being accused of something before it actually happens it's kind of a reverse psychology but letting her know however she wants to take it but to look at reality and it can prove if you're guilty but also it can prove how much you really love him/her.  ****** Please feel free to send me an email with questions, comments or feedback to thirddegreepodcastnh@gmail.com ******** AUDIBLE.COM SPECIAL FOR MY LISTNERS ******* Click the link below for a special for our listeners!

#40 A look into season 2 - Starting with Family and children affected by BPD
I figured I would start with Family and children affected by BPD, with the statistics of my listeners age group and emails that I have gotten Im surprised that I mostly hear about a girlfriend/boyfriend or husband/wife but very, very rarely talk about family life and/or children involved and the impact that BPD has had on them or even the fact of listeners who were affected living in a household with BPD affected one of their parents or even one of the children being diagnosed with BPD. ****** Please feel free to send me an email with questions, comments or feedback to thirddegreepodcastnh@gmail.com ****** ** AUDIBLE.COM SPECIAL FOR LISTNERS ***  Click the link below for a special for our listeners!

#38 BPD the Cancer of the mind that keeps living
This episode is how I compare someone that is diagnosed with cancer, they are given a time that their life might expire and both of you are prepared and see the physical downhill of losing their life, but with BPD it takes their life away from you mentally but they continue to live on just like being an empty shell of someone you don't know anymore! After my wife was diagnosed I slowly saw her slipping away into someone I didn't know after 34 years being completely a stranger and Finally someone completely different. ****** Please feel free to send me an email with questions, comments or feedback to thirddegreepodcastnh@gmail.com ****** ** AUDIBLE.COM SPECIAL FOR LISTNERS ***  Click the link below for a special for our listeners!

#34 Putting yourself in their shoes by trying alternatives
These are a collection of some tips that I gathered by researching online or listening to audio books that I have tried in situations with my wife (who has BPD) and they have worked many times and I wanted to offer them to you. If YOU HAVE BPD: I would suggest that you think of situations in the past or that may arise and try turning the tables and think of the examples I put in place and IF YOU ARE A NON-BPD maybe you should try these tips if you care enough about the person in your life with BPD and if you ant to end a cycle of the same outcome. These tips may not only help upcoming situations BUT they may end a situation that is a reoccurring situation but you can try to end the cycle with a new approach for a better outcome. Good luck to all and remember... If you have BPD, you are still a good person, you are special and beautiful! You are loving, caring and compassionate but what might make you question all these good things about yourself is people with BPD generally have a more harsh side then people who don't so with the over the top tantrums, the nasty harsh things you say to your partner it may overshadow the good person that you really are, so if you want to feel better about yourself and have a happier and healthier relationship you need to work on yourself and then the good in you will shine!   ****** Please feel free to send me an email with questions, comments or feedback to thirddegreepodcastnh@gmail.com ****** *** AUDIBLE.COM SPECIAL FOR LISTNERS ***  Click the link below for a special for our listeners!

#33 You can't change someone else, no matter how hard you try!
It's true that you cannot change someone else, but you can change yourself and how to cope and work better with the person with BPD as well as changing the circumstances and the situation to an extent. But I have always believed that when 2 people love each other you don't always have to sacrifice because its easier to compromise. This episode also has some tips on little things I have done to help add some spark into the relationship which does NOT always have to be with a partner who has BPD, listen and you will see it can help ANYONE! ****** Please feel free to send me an email with questions, comments or feedback to thirddegreepodcastnh@gmail.com ****** *** AUDIBLE.COM SPECIAL FOR LISTNERS ***  Click the link below for a special for our listeners!

#29 Listener Email: "Honey I Have to Use Drugs To Deal With You!"
This is a Listener Email, His name is Daryll and wants to get my opinion that it is OK for him to "Self Medicate" himself with Heroin ONLY BECAUSE he is just using it to deal with the bitching, complaining, accusing and turmoil so he thinks it is OK. But to make matters worse he tells his wife this as his excuse thinking she will forgive him and he thinks she will allow him to use heroin because its her fault anyway! But I reply telling him he is so lucky because rather than telling him to pound sand and get lost NOT JUST FOR using drugs, but blaming her and saying hey let me keep using so I can deal with you! She actually was nice enough to give him the chance to clean up and come back home!!! You will find this my LONGEST EPISODE and I really get into the nitty gritty!

#28 Listener Email: How do I make my husband understand I don't act this way on purpose?
Julie a 34 year old married female wants to explain how she makes nasty comments about why her husband has to work late, but she never gets the response she expects. I try explain that "For every action, there is a reaction." and that "Like attracts like". I feel that I offer a better and more rational response that she can offer to the situation.

This is a theory that I designed just a short time ago that will allow you to show your person with BPD pros and cons of their good side and bad side give them credit where credit is due but explain it to them the cons of the bad side and the description and chaos that it causes and the lives around them.  *** AUDIBLE.COM SPECIAL FOR LISTNERS ***  Click the link below for a special for our listeners!
