Hello everyone,
I’m happy to have found this forum!
I have been struggling with depression and anxiety for years, as far back as I can remember and I’ve been recently been diagnosed with BPD and looking back on my life I can see it started way back in grade school.
Anyway, I feel incredibly alone and it’s so very painful at times. My kids father who lives with us is hoping I get better soon so that we can be intimate, yet he has no interest in listening when I share about this side of me, he says “well that’s why you have a therapist!” *sigh*
I don’t have any friends and I’m hoping to attend my first group session the beginning of January.
Well, I guess this is a start...

My First Day too!

Hello! :)

I GET IT!! i just want you to know this.
I am grateful for the great people i have around me, but none of them seem to understand the way my mind works.
I find it difficult to open up and to be honest about whats going on inside my head through fear of being judged.

I'm hoping in this forum i can find some people who understand what its like to be a bit different. I'm honest, open and always up for a chat.

Good Luck on your journey,
Stay Safe,
Peace Out

Hi Firefly,

welcome aboard! :welcome:

I'm glad you have been diagnosed. Thats the hardest bit in my opinion dealing with the diagnosis then everything falls into place with meds and things get easier. I was diagnose 6 years ago and I was so glad at the time that I could just sleep without the constrant distress, now 6 years on I'm fully stable, have a full time job and several friends. I still suffer dissociation now and again but learn to deal with it.

Everyone here is lovely. It truely helped me in the beginning knowing I wasn't the only one going through it..and somewhere to come for support :flower2:
