Are Borderlines Chameleon’s Who Are Afraid to Be Themselves So They Change Depending on the People They Are With?

I feel like that I’m never myself around the people that I’m with. I have BPD, so I usually act a certain way when I’m around certain people. When I say “act” I mean, it’s like I become them. I unknowingly imitate their mannerisms, I always agree with them (even when I don’t), and I do whatever I can to please them, so it’s like I’m not really being myself. Any recommendations on how...

Delusions

I have ptsd and borderline. This winter, I had a phase of four months in which I had delusions. The delusions entailed having somebody else’s presence in my head, up to the point where this presence (while being in my head) wanted to kill me or wanted me to kill myself.
