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.

Lauren, it takes a while to really begin to understand the implications of being BPD. I took dbt training -- which helps tremendously...but along with that I have been doing therapy...and between those two things... life DOES get better. At least for today, life is better. There are no guarantees for how life will feel tomorrow.


I got diagnosed in Jan of '12. I started out by reading everything I could find on BPD to educate myself. And, yes, it was overwhelming and scary...but I'd rather be an educated consumer.


Just remember you are not alone.
