Thank you Dem - I am just sorry it took so long for me to be able to get the right words together. Us BPD'ers have a heck of a tough time but we can get sorted. Sometimes I think it is harder than being, say, bipolar, cause it isn't something that can be controlled through meds. ok so the depression and anxiety can be but the actual BPD only seems to get better through skills training (DBT) and that is hard work! It is worth it though, I have noticed such a huge difference. I still have all the same feelings but I am learning how to make sure they don't rule me.

I am very pleased my post helped. Keep posting please - it will be good to hear how you are doing etc.

oh and thank you for the comment about my pic - feeling rather insecure, hateful of myself and wanted to hide. Might put it back up but not yet.

hey there dem - The sun is shining, the sky is blue and the trees are all wonderful autumnal colours so that makes me smile a bit.

I'm taking some time to recover from the last week. trying very hard not to let the urges take over my brain and body but it's so so hard.


Hope you are ok
