    I sent a couple of Medical BPD websites to my family members and people that are close to me so they may see some triggers that I may not. It's helpful to stay on top of anything that's going to set you off before it does and who better to see changes in your behavior, etc. than your friends and family. I'm a huge advocate of posting sticky notes with positive affirmations in places I go to frequently; bathroom, fridge, table next to your favorite chair any other places you can think of.
