    CBT therapy (for me not very long yet) has been useful. Researching to learn more about myself. Learning how to apply symptoms to potential triggers. Patience with yourself.

      I've definitely had luck so far with CBT but I definitely need to work on the bridge between certain symptoms and triggers

    I was misdiagnosed BPD a long time. And took Delectable behavior therapy. (DBT) i found it most helpful in managing episodes that make me feel like im spiraling out of control (snowballing). I have the most sympathy for BPD people. Their therapy is hardcore no-nonsense. Distress tolerance helped me the most and when i could control my distress the mindfulness became so much easier!

    DBT, art, and video games that take all of my attention/focus have helped me significantly. I've also had intensive outpatient programs (IOP) and partial hospitalisation programs (PHP) that were based off of the CBT format of therapy which helped me a good bit too
