For now, here are the entries from my journal that pertain to my BPD/DBT experience directly - although how can one really separate out what is part of a disorder from the rest of life?
Anyway...Folks with BPD might find the following of particular interest and I did want to introduce myself to the community:
Who am I?
BPD Recovery - Entry 1
Slow & Steady Wins the Race
Memories, Self-soothing, Sensation
Force of Nature
Fighting Emotional Fallout
Fighters & survivors
*looks up at list and chuckles* Well, I warned you I was prolific! LOL. Oh, and here's a positive quote to end my introduction on. Be well and please, I'd love to hear from folks!
"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel unsure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone."
