BPD and severe depression, but still a person.

Hi everyone. I am new here, so will introduce myself.
I am 26 and have been diagnosed with Borderline personality disorder and severe depression. I have been off work for 15 months now, and cannot leave my house alone due to extreme anxiety and paranoia. I am desperate to get my life back, and wish I had a job and a routine. I am struggling with the benefit system and have come up against some blatant discrimination. I just didnt think things like that happened anymore :unsure:
I am studying for a Bsc degree in psychology. I love it and really hope I will complete it, but the old concerntration plays me up quite alot.
I have a boyfriend, we have been together 9 years, but now live apart due to my illness and other crappy life factors! I have a cat called Monty, he is just as crazy as I am. I got him when I was first diagnosed, and he has been the best companion anyone could ask for.
I find that having a sense of humour is a great way to deal with my illness, and try as often as I can to laugh. :D (not easy on those black days).
So, in a nutshell, thats me.

Hello there

Hi there I am Lucy 46 and live in cov. I have borderline and anti social personality disorder amongst other things lol. I really identify with what you said about your cat. I have an absolutely gorgeous male lurcher called Philo and he truly is an amazing dog and has helped me more than words can say. If it wasn't for him I would not be here. I find it very hard to have close relationships with people and he has been my life line really. Anyway I am new and only joined the site a couple of days ago.
