I'm a 22 year old yungerman sufffering from borderline. I'm going for DBT sessions. I've seen some improvement and I'm looking for a friend (preferabally in brooklyn) who is either in it, or has beaten BPD. Anyone else out there. Please respond!
Thanks

I'm not sure if u r looking for a 3D friend, or on line. If u are looking for an on - line aquaintance, then I have a suggestion.
You could post more details rather than just "Looking for support", in other words I mean, talking about a specific event that you are dealing with, or feelings that are coming up.
It is easier for people to respond to specific ideas, as a opposed to a generalised type of question.
In this manner people will get to know more about who you are, and will be able to support you on a much deeper level.

good luck
debbi

Good for you that you are addressing it early on and getting help.

Severe borderlines don't recognize or refuse to admit that they suffer from it.

Where are you going for DBT?

The info could be helpful to others looking for a group.

I suggest that you go to the Mood Disorders Support Groups sponsored by the Depression & Bipolar Support Alliance. They meet on Wednesdays at the St. Luke's Roosevelt Adult Outpatient Psychiatric Clinic. Go to the site: www.mdsg.org... There are a few frum people who go to these meetings...

Are any of you still here? I am suffering from BPD. It would help to talk to other people who are also.

Leah,

Have you made any progress in treatment for Borderlines?

I'm looking for a support group for family members of BPD sufferers.

Yes, Thank G-d i have made progress. Being in a BPD program at UCLA is helping. Very slow progress, but helping. Still difficult, tyring to hang in there.

hi, i am the mother of a BPD and would love to be in touch with other parents who are dealing with the same issues. just as a BPD goes thru gehenum, the parent who loves a BPD and tries to be their helping support, goes thru gehenum on their own.
yes, you know they have a problem and are not in control of their destructive actions, hurtful words, and torment their loved ones go thru. but you reach a point where that knowledge just doesnt help anymore. someon who tries to love a BP (who is in denial and wont accept any help) is in for torment.
anyone who is experiencing the same?

I'm not a parent but I am a husband of someone who suffered with BPD and it was not easy. B"H things have gotten better. I suggest you read the book Stop Walking on Eggshells http://www.amazon.com/Stop-Walking-Eggshells-Borderline-Personality/dp/157224108X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1258412335&sr=8-1 good luck.
Kol Tuv,
Aba
