Cool Borderline Personality Disorder

I have been recently been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, anyone out there that can give advise or suggestions of going forward and managing this disorder would be very helpful.

Re: Borderline Personality Disorder

I was diagnosed with BPD, too--and I went through two treatments of what's called Dialectical Behavioral Therapy or DBT. The patient meets in a group with other borderlines, under the guidance of therapists, and he/she goes through a book of exercises, readings, etc. It was designed by Marsha Linehan (sp?), specifically for borderlines. I would ask a therapist about it--and make sure you do get into therapy and stay there. Some borderlines get mad at their therapists and hop from one to another. That will not work. I was also in weekly therapy for three years. It takes a lot of work and motivation, but you can get better. In fact, some people are now talking about "cure." I admit that my BPD was a "high-functioning" variety, but two therapists and my current psychiatrist now say that they see no evidence of BPD (such as rage) in me. Best wishes!

Thumbs up Re: Borderline Personality Disorder

Thank you Payne, one of my major problems is working with groups. I will have to reference a group here and see if it helps.

I just want to live!

Thanks for your support.
