So yesteday I had my first big appointment. I was finally officially diagnosed with borderline personality disroder.
I have been prescribed lamotrigine and am being put forward for psycho therapy.

I am relieved I am finally getting somewhere after years of struggling with this. But it's also daunting knowing for sure what I have and that it's not going to go away...

Hello Tyson. Welcome to the forum. I can understand the mixed feelings you have after getting your diagnosis. I have found it helpful to research BPD to give myself more understanding of it. It is great you are going to have therapy. I believe it is very important for us.

I second the above poster because research is key and it is UP TO US to try learn skills to live with bpd as there is no cure.
You seem aware of your situation but that has its upsides.
Good luck the suffering is eternal.
