    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Do you have Borderline Personality Disorder? This new Exchange has been developed so we can encourage each other, share tips to get through those down days, and/or just vent.

    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

    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.
