One more thing: I don't like the label of BPD, either. My T told me that they are traits. I like that. It made more sense than the label. Since it is sooo different and there are many variations of experiences I do agree that ONE definitive label isn't useful.Read More...
Thanks Jones. That is a great video. I have to say that I was somewhat distracted by her beautiful skin! Kashley: LOL, that is funny. That exercise (hugging yourself) is in a book I read recently. I laughed that the author suggested doing it where nobody would see.Read More...
Holy cow LL -- why did it take me so long to find this post? I have to get a copy of this book, yet I am also afraid to read it. This part was HUGE: "There is an anxious need to feel recognized and loved. Relationships are therefore craved, although they provoke anxiety and anger. Inasmuch as this demanding state does increase other people’s involvement, no matter whether positive or negative, it reduces the fear of feeling alone and abandoned." I wonder if this is what my T is doing with...Read More...

I really enjoyed this book, it helped me be aware that my T must care a little about me which I really struggle to believed LuciRead More...
yes, indeed. I enjoyed the fact that the opinions expressed were balanced. Some of the contributers in the book were a little over the top in their criticism of therapy and alternative medicine, and need to check out PubMed where they can clearly see that there are good studies that prove the efficacy of talk therapy, pharmaceutical drugs, and alternative approaches. I'm not sure where people get it in their head that pharmaceutical drugs have been proven more effective than other methods...Read More...

I used to be very much into the New Thought stuff, but I have become skeptical of some of it. I intend to go back this time, and find what is useful for me and what is not. I think that for me, just stilling my mind might bring me closer to bliss. Often this happens while I'm doing something like snowboarding, that requires focus. I actually have this book on the shelf. I'll see what I find in it today, open it up to any page...Read More...

xoxo: This looks pretty insightful. Is the rest of the book as good? It certainly seems better than some of the other (similar) books that came up in the Amazon search...ones that offered platitudes instead of insights..AND were more expensive! If it were available on Kindle I would get it right now (instant gratification Thanks, and let us know what else you come across in your readings!Read More...

My Mum's definitely got borderline traits. She gets angry and irritated if you defy her in anyway or annoy her. She doesn't often get malicious or anything but she's quick to storm off with swear words under her breath. She talks to herself and intellectualizes an awful lot. Mum has got used to seclusion and isolation though she dotes on me when I'm there. She's a mixture. I'll definitely have a read. Thanks UnbrokenRead More...
((SomeDays)) I think we are going to learn a lot from one another. I'm very passionate about helping others find their own happiness, and when/if I find a "trick" or "technique" that helps to calm the storm raging inside of me, I am going to gladly share it with you all.Read More...
