    hi everyone. I am new to the site and I am interested in the creative ways people are finding to help with BPD. I have done a lot of reasearch so I know a lot about the causes and the symptoms but I have not been able to find much by way of recovery. I actually had a therapist that was familiar with bpd tell me it was too hard to treat. I left her services after that.
    I have accepted that this disorder has run my whole life and I am really miserable. I want to be able to have a normal relationship with someone without giving up my whole identity. I would like to know that there is hope and solutions that are out there.
    I tried DBT but I learned that I don't know what soothing feels like. I was always on my own when I needed some comfort so I don't have that in my skill set. It doesn't seem to be something that anyone can explain or even understand. Sometimes I think I say things that are true for me but people who didn't live my life cant understand and they don't really believe me.
    I hope there are some ideas for me I look forward to hearing them.
