      What worked for me was Schema becayse DBT didn’t help. I used to call myself a destroyer. Because destroyed peoples lives around me. Part of me is still waiting for everyone to leave at any moment. I just have started to separate myself from that. It came with age and healthy relationships with people who weren’t abusive or toxic to me.

      DBT workbooks were pretty helpful and practice your coping skills even when you are not in distress will help when you actually need to use them.

      I know that feeling I would not touch my grand child for fear of ruining her and all I ever wanted was a grandchildren. I believe I am more of a problem than a good influence on my family and struggle to forgive myself I just have to remember to keep trying to change my thought processes.

      I know what you are talking about, sometimes I also feel like you. Which therapy did you try? The most effective for me was DBT. Did you try it?

      Hey, I’m sending you a big hug. I don’t really have a suggestion on how to treat bpd. I can only ask you to stay strong, and to believe in yourself.
