Hi!

I'm Lauren, and although recently diagnosed with Borderline Personality, I have suspected I had it for a long time.


It is amazing there is a group like this. I honestly had no idea, and joined WebMD today for weight loss, then stumbled upon this discussion group.


A lot of days are hard for me. Luckily, I am in what I call a "good space" today.


How do you cope when you're not in a good space? I have a hard time coping.

My therapist taught me the DBT skills. They are absolutely incredible when I have a bad day. You'll find they are skills you probably already use.


I'm glad you found this community. There are few of us and sometimes no one will post for days/weeks. I try to check in every day.
