So, even the natural daily morning rise in cortisol will cause you to emotionally dump.

Anyhow, I'm pretty disappointed that apparently none of your long string of therapists have informed you of much of this... I was hoping the professional industry was much more insightful and better than that on average. I mean, what the h*ll do you waste time talking about, then? Time is money and really, they should be helping you to accurately diagnose (on multiple levels) and heal as fast as possible.
Nope and I just went to another one today who took a string of notes, was not allowed to tell me anything (hes working for the courts) except

If you went to work now you'd be unlikely to last an hour.

Which is true.

None of them have even mentioned the above to me...are you a Professional?

I didn't even have treatment really for most of the last 4 years. Like, none.

So, how would you set about correcting this? because as far as I can see, that hits the nail on the head exactly - about an hour after awakening. Wow.

By the way how can you stuff something down you don't know you have?

Also I'm pretty sure that cortisol, while interesting, is not my major problem.

A bit more on cortisol and how it gets produced.

Cortisol is a part of the limbic system which controls your most basic human functions. Cortisol is released in response to fear or stress by the adrenal glands as part of the fight-or-flight mechanism.

Often people with conditions like BPD and PTSD have a much higher rate of having "fight or flight" triggered, which is why cortisol can become a problem.

Cortisol is just a stress hormone. We all have varying levels of it. I agree that it doesn't sound as if that's the main issue.

Nope, just an amateur sleuth...

No, cortisol is just a downstream factor that could be causing the morning spikes. Your primary issue lies buried in your subconscious, which is what stuffs stuff and where. So, to really heal (IMO), you have to access your subconscious and resolve your problem's root cause.

But here is where the hero (you) must willingly depart from your conventionally-known world and heed your call to adventure...to cross the first threshold down into the "underworld" (your subconscious).

If you are not willing to do that, then you will remain as you are...as you have been for years & decades...

(But judging by your title for this thread, I would say that you ARE actually subconsciously RED-y for this JOURNEY, whether you knew it or not!)

Oh hush, you evil, thankless stepmother!

It's only a matter of time before Cinderella is magically transformed instantly by a fairy and rescued by a prince from her life of perpetual victimhood and then lives happily ever after!

Keep your fingers crossed!

Seriously though, she's at least made a nominal effort with therapy and acknowledged her BPD - so there is hope. That's already more than many...although she still has a long way to go...
