I have BPD. I have had it for a very long time. I have gotten help for it, group help and one on one therapy. I am so much better for it.


I just want everyone who posts here to know you can live with it and still be happy. I have never quite gotten over it, it still rears its ugly head once in a while, but I am so happy with my life. I am so lucky. I am so much to be thankful for.


Much love to all on the board and much good health.

Thank you for sharing this, Merrida.
As i'm sure you know, when you're in the depths of despair it's really difficult to imagine you'll ever smile again - and so it's always lovely to hear people talk of feeling better.

I have found that a lot of the symptoms I was having 5 years ago when I was diagnosed have really got better. It's amazing to think how far i've come.
So yes, I do agree with what your posting too. Things can get better.

Would also like to wish you all the best and continued happiness. :hug:

Hello SomersetScorpio,

That is why I posted. I wanted people in the forum to know that it can get better when you work really hard. It is possible to be happy and still have the disease. Life can be wonderful even with BPD!!!

Love,

merrida
