> Thank you for responding. part of my problem is that I am also social phobic. The very thought of being in a social situation of any kind with people I don't know, absolutely terrifies me. This has really put a strain on my relationship with my husband and children, as they don't understand how I feel. >


Maybe you need another therapist, or try telling this one it's just not doing it for you, and you don't think you're getting better. If you're too shy to do this, you could try writing letters to find another therapist and explain to them you're socially phobic. Check out those websites I suggested. I think I even remember reading that borderline personality disorder often coexists with other mental/emotional disorders. I have many 'disorders' and am highly functioning. I feel I'm about 85% of the way there. I've done lots of work and am very determined to lead a healthy life. About your husband and child, luckily for them (healthy people), it's very hard for them to understand us. I just keep the channels of communication very open with the people in my life, and most of them try very hard at understanding me. My family and boyfriend even read books I suggest to them on mental illnesses. For the most part, it works out in the end.

Also Barbara, you are not alone in your search for the right combination of medication. That is what about 90% of the postings on this website are about. Don't give up. Let me know how you're doing.

Take care, Cynthia
