I have struggled for 30 years at least with issues that were called depression and anxiety, medication resistant depression and anxiety, then on to bipolar 2 with med resistant depression and anxiety, and now on to BPD. It has evolved and I do believe that the more I learn about BPD that I am sure that is what is going on. I've found a therapist and meds doc that I am optimistic about. The biggest struggle I am having at the moment is trying to get my head around the talk therapy/dbt stuff. I have such a negative view of a lot of it because it never worked in the past. I like to think that I am still trying is a good thing, it is just so frustrating that I seem to be "stuck". I have myself so convinced of certain things that some of the talk just in one ear and out the other. I want to change... have a better life... actually live my life. I haven't read through a lot of things here yet. Just wondering if anyone can relate to my therapy struggle and maybe give some advice what to do.. My therapist wants me to make a list of things i want to work on and prioritize them..... I was like... they are all important/bad. So yeah.. that's where I'm at. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
