(Llsibb, I opened a new conversation so others can read and chime in. I hope you don't mind.) Hey how are you guys??? I'm new to this site. And Im just in the process of recovering from yet another failed attempt to stop it all. Been trying to make sense of what's wrong with me. And I spent the last 12 hours reading all the stuff on here. And I now feel like Im not alone and maybe there's still hope. I know that u can understand how I feel. Please if possible to help me out here. What should I expect to happen? Will it ever change??? Who should I talk to?? Who should I see?? I'm having major trust issues. Any advice on how to pick a specialist and how to be able to trust one enough that I can cry my heart out and get all the secrets out once and for all?? Please please. Thank you soooo sooo much A snake with gold wings to fly is what I always dream of.

My advice would be to find a therapist. Ask if they teach the DBT skills. Unless you immediately are not comfortable with the first therapist, give that person at least four sessions before you decide they can't help you.

I decided I wanted to see a Christian Psychologist and that's when I found DrB.

I don't think we'll ever be 'cured' of Borderline Personality but learning the DBT skills is a good start.

I hope others will add their advice.
