Better thank you. I upped my meds again, so back in the fog again, but at least more stable.

I hate the fog.

Well done you xxx
I have cPTSD, and BPD, to be honest I never felt BPD, but cPTSD, was like someone looking in my head.
Steve told me and I'm going to tell you
BPD is just 3 letters, it's not who you are, and yes BPD is the only PD that can cured. But, you will always have slightly odd thinking and coping skills. And, occasionally you need a top up.
Good luck your DBT journey, write about it and let us know how you get on.
Lots of Love
Poppy xx

Thank you poppy and midnight. I needed the love. It’s been a terrible day. Every freaking aspect of my project that’s launching on Monday is screwing up. And the response is, well it’s not so bad.... well no, there are legislative regulations that make not so bad, very bad.

There is almost certainly a way forward. Would you like to share in a roundabout way of what has happened and what you are possibly facing as a result...

I feel like an asshole, unable to cope.

Work offered me a full time position after four years on contract. It was fantastic news because I always felt kind of homeless prior.

It also gives me a bit of protection from the new boss coming in, so a lot of stress has been reduced.

I feel like I’m taking the right steps to recovery, enrolling in dbt to give me tools so I’m not so explosive. I am hopeful.

Go you, congratulations, you see, even with BPD / PTSD you can hold it together enough to be seen as a person who someone wants to employ

Just signed my permanent papers today. It’s official. Better still, they are counting all my previous years career experience towards my seniority in the role AND vacation time. It looks like I will jump from two weeks to five a year. I was stunned.
