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!

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.
