Hi Deneb,

How is it going today? I hope you're feeling a bit better.

I don't think most people want to be on meds--I never did. I even did strict, no med cbt for awhile. My cbt coach told me I needed meds. :( I cried my eyes out, but it's true. I feel better (much better) on them.
My understanding of BPD is along the lies of what Twinleaf (?) said about an underlying dysregulation. In some ways, BPD is similar to C-PTSD, which is my dx.

I think there is much misunderstanding about BPD, like 'if only I could do this or that better', or even the idea that BPD shouldn't respond to or need meds, when at the heart of it lies a biological dyregulation.

I hope you can take it easy on your self Deneb :) At least that's what I'm working on. And btw, I have lots and lots of triggers :(

Hope today is a good one for you.

MDD currently controlled. C-ptsd and comorbid health concerns. Chronic fatigue.
