Newly diagnosed BPD on top of multiple other diagnoses. Any tips, recommendations on treatment?

      Understand that when learning about BPD, there is going to be some pretty hurtful readings. When I was newly diagnosed (2011) I jumped right online to figure myself out. It was a very scary and stressful time and I cried so hard when I read how it pretty much calls people with BPD monsters. Now that I am a lot further in getting to know myself and my BPD I can easily brush that off. Honestly with BPD the most helpful thing I have done so far is DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy). I highly recommend getting into sessions/group/app whatever you can find/get into. That is all I can really recommend at this time, as I didn’t really start getting consistent help till a few years back and even now I struggle. I just keep reading books and writing journals about my feelings and triggers and learning how to better help myself to change certain ways I think and react. I know BPD seems like a scary burden, but I can promise you. Once you start to better understand your own personal self..it starts to get a heck of a lot better and you can actually help others if you choose to.

      I got diagnosed several years ago and to be honest I’m still lost. There are not many DBT therapists in my area and they are highly and not in network of insurance so it is stressful financially. Does anybody have any resources that are free for reading or learning about DBT such as workbooks? Or your favorite books? Don’t even mind spending a few hundred bucks but therapy in my area over the course of several months looks like it’s gonna be thousands

      I wrote a big comment and it disappeared, that took me 30 minutes lmao. Anyways if you have any questions about resources, symptoms, DBT, Medication options, or just need an ear, my dms are always open. It's a long journey, and it can be a tad stressful. But we Borderlines get enough flack, so we gotta stick together and lift each other up
