Dr. Michael L. Ham answered:

I have borderline glaucoma. how much vision loss will I have?

Glaucoma

Vision
Borderline is not really correct. Either you have damage to the optic nerve making glaucoma, or you do not have damage. You may have risk factors or finding that suggest you have or may develop glaucoma. the amount of vision loss will be determined by how well it is controlled, if you do have glaucoma.

I have borderline glaucoma, how long will it be before it gets really bad?

Borderline glaucoma

Glaucoma
diagnosis from your Ophthalmologist indicates you have risk factors coupled with suspicious results on your glaucoma tests that do not meet the criteria for the actual diagnosis of glaucoma. Some individuals never go on to develop overt glaucoma while others do progress. Regular follow up visits and testing will help develop a clearer answer over time.

Side effect

Open-uri20140321-21740-7bswmt
If you notice chest pain or tightness or breathing difficulty, you should discontinue timolol and call your Eye doc about your symptoms. He/she will more than likely switch you to a different class of medication.

Describe the features of a borderline personality.?

Rapid mood swings

BPD is a long-term inability to manage strong emotions, coupled with lack of a stable sense of self. Sensitivity to abandonment/rejection, self-harming behavior (suicide gestures), black/white thinking ("splitting"), & fast mood swings are common. Long-term psychotherapy is often difficult but very helpful, & sometimes medications can help treat symptoms of overwhelming feelings in the meantime.

What to do if i'm suffering from borderline personality?

Borderline PD

Open-uri20130809-12045-1gb8m7n
If you are diagnosed with Borderline PD, find a good therapist to work with in long term insight-oriented psychotherapy. This will be your main base of treatment. You may also need additional skills training for dealing with intense emotions -- Dialectic Behavioral Therapy is set up to do exactly this. You will likely also need a psychiatrist to help with medications from time to time.

What are avoidant and borderline personality disorders?

Avoidant and BPD

Personality_disorder
Avoidant personality disorder is characterized by social fears, feeling socially inadequate, and fearing rejection. Borderline personality disorder is characterized by unstable and intense moods that are worsened by feelings of rejection, abandonment, and emptiness.
