    Hi Rosalind,
    Thank-you so much for your articulate and intelligent post:-) You have articulated perfectly how I feel. I am 52 and was diagnosed with BPD last summer. Until then, life had been full of so many of the symptoms. even until last year, when after being diagnosed I took massive and daily action in changing my thinking and emotions. Not through therapy (it is $200.00 an hour), but through taking a DBT group course and reading a lot on the subconscious mind and taking a Dream Builder course. So much of the painful and confused thinking that I was trapped in has dissolved, but I am still stuck and blocked in the ways you are and your story is so much my own. I feel that the self-sabotoshing that I do is the last demon that remains in me to be understood and tackled. But of course within that are many things that I am sure I will need to understand in myself. I have manged to find an online therapist who can help me and a 31 day challenge that I am starting.
    Love and light to you,

      Hello Leslie
      Thank you for your comments and positive feedback. I am sorry that it has taken me a month to respond to you, I need to get much better at checking for incoming messages. I am inspired to read about all of the independent steps you are taking to improve your quality of life. I myself had a two year intensive course of therapy via an outreach program, that consisted of group work alongside individual therapy. I find that taking one day at a time works well for me, I try to embrace where I can see growth and ‘give myself a break’ if I ‘take a step backward’.. that in itself is a huge step forward as I would normally beat myself up (not literally) for days after any set backs.. I do hope you see this response. Wishing you all the very best. Rosalind
