newbie reaching out
lunakissed posted:
I am new here and I am new to reaching out to others. I have lived as such a recluse for so long that even going online like this is hard.

I am also disabled with a host of physical issues....fibromyalgia and arthritis to name a few.

I have heard that people with BPD have a high rate of these types of physical diseases and I am not surprised as anxiety can produce stress which then manifests itself through our bodies.

Anyway, I wanted to say Hi....

One other piece that I would like to share is that I have been accepted into the DBT program here after a stint in the hospital this summer so I am looking forward to gaining skills to help me have a better quality of life and maybe help me physically feel more like doing this rather than sitting in my apartment wondering how I managed to get to this point in my life.

Greetings all

Hello and welcome to both of you. I pop in every so often, depending on how I am feeling.

Great news that you have been accepted onto the DBT programme locally - it is amazing! I didn't realise how much of a difference it would make.

Hope you are keeping well
