Yes, I'm here but haven't been posting. Too little time, too much depression, and too many struggles. I changed my signature to reflect on the need I have in life right now. I hope others might like it, too.

BPD is a thorn in my side. I hate it. I try to use my DBT skills but they don't seem to help me like I expect them to do. I am frustrated and so is Dr.B (my therapist). My mind races all the time; I think I am mostly right about decisions but then I am told that my way wasn't/isn't the right one.

I probably will not post much for a while. I'll be lurking more than posting.

Thank you for thinking of me.

Mary,
Something I have tried that really is very helpful is:
GOD

I will say Satan go away and leave me alone and then I will pray the Lords Prayer and this has been real good when I can do it. It's just a matter of decidng not to suffer anymore I guess?!

I'm sorry to hear you are struggling! I really think that is beautiful your signature!! YAY!

You do know me but may not remember me. It's been a while since i talked to you here. I'm usually on sh board.

God speed friend!!!!! All we can do is one day at a time

Thanks!
May God walk before you. b.e.f.
