  1. Sometimes you get to a point where meds become necessary. But not everyone gets there. My therapist is if the opinion that the mental health community over medicates. BPD in my case refers to Borderline Personality Disorder, but bipolar II hasn’t been ruled out and one therapist I saw said it’s highly likely I have it as well. With BPD, therapy (DBT) is the proven method of treatment. Medication is less effective, thought you can treat anxiety and depression that way.
  2. Honestly, I’ve been prescribed medication and I don’t take it. I think it’s a personal choice unless you’re at a rock bottom point. Once in a while I’ll take Valium to soothe my anxiety. But I prefer a more holistic approach to wellness. Mindfulness can do wonders.
  3. Thank you. I started DBT therapy last year and I’ve made tremendous strides. The difference a year has made is incredible. Right now, I mostly struggle with bigger questions...just coming to terms with not being as strong as I’d like or as autonomous. Or just the fact that none of us are. I’ve definitely faced what happened to me more in the last year than I had since it started over 15 years ago. I’ve done a lot of forgiving and letting go. But I’ll probably always have PTSD. I’ll always have borderline personality disorder. I’ll always have a drinking problem. The inclinations don’t go away, but I can turn the volume down enough that they don’t rule me and learn not to act on unhealthy emotions
  4. Thank you, it’s over, but I know I’ll be cleaning up the mess my whole life. Thank you, hun <3
  5. Hi, all. I’m 23, female, USA. I was molested between ages 7 and 10, then had negative sexual experiences (some would call rape, but not me) in early adulthood due to risk taking. I’ve been diagnosed with BPD, PTSD, alcohol use disorder and major depressive disorder. But none of that defines me. I’m mostly a happy person with a lot of love in my life and consider myself a very fortunate person. Therapy and amazing people will do wonders.
