I Have BPD, Do I Need Medication?

Question by H is for Hello: I have BPD, do I need medication?
Alright, recently I have been diagnosed (yes, actually diagnosed by a psychiatrist) with Borderline Personality Disorder. Well, technically Im not officially diagnosed because Im only 14, but I have every one of the symptoms. They called it “Borderline Personality Organization.”

My doctor says I dont need any medication but I know shes only saying that because my mom told her she doesnt want me on anything. Almost all my family has either BPD, depression, anxiety or some other mental disorder. I KNOW I need meds for this – its really bad. Im suicidal almost constantly, depressed, I used to cut and have an eating disorder, I have awful anger problems, really anxious, and sometimes I feel like Im going crazy.

What meds should I be on for this?

And how do I convince my doctor/mom this is what I need? They both know all of this and I was in a psych ward for two weeks a couple months ago. I dont know how to make it any clearer that I have a problem that I cant fix on my own..
I know there are no specific meds for BPD. Im talking about meds for all my symptoms. (The depression, anger problems, etc).

Not to be too off the hook, but I’ve always wondered what BPD is, since my grandmother might have that.
