> I am relly lucky in that mu pdoc is younga nd enthusiastic..

That's been my experience with young pdocs, too: they're excited, and their knowledge is very up-to-date. They also seem to understand pharmacology better than many older pdocs do, IME.

> s for the DBT, they want me to start that as soon as possible (or as soon as they can fit me in!) and after that has started, start some intensive "talk" therapy (3 times week - maybe every day).

That sounds like a good plan, assuming the therapist is a good match for you. (Who's "they," out of curiosity?)

> he also wants me to thiunk about joining a group that meets once a week, specifically aimed at those with BPD.

Like a support group, or interpersonal group therapy? That's a good idea. You might find that there's a lot of interpersonal tension in the group, but I still think it could be very helpful.

> i spent two yers getting no help, and now have it piling up - it really gives me hope though.

Two years? That's not good. I know that if I went without treatment that long, I'd be a total basket case, and my understanding is that BPD is a much more chronic thing than depression (my personal demon) is.

> Thanks for so supportive over it!!

Well, sure. How could I be anything else? It's a terrible disorder to have to live with, and I really feel for you (especially in light of all the stigma directed at people with BPD). I hope that things work out!

Best wishes,
