shadows,

> Why is that friend applying for a position that
used to be yours?

We've both been interested in a very small field. It's complicated. But there really aren't that many jobs in this area.


>Hmmmm Would I be hurt? Yes, it's only natural that if I had a bad experience, that I wouldn't want to hear someone doing great there and rub it in later.

Yeah, it's kind of a relief for me to hear that my feelings are pretty normal, so I'm glad you would feel the same way.


> Have you asked why your t thinks you have BPD? What does it mean to you if you do?

I'm not sure if I've come right out and asked her this exactly, although when she brought it up the first time, I'm sure she gave me some sort of explanation. I can't recall what it was. Maybe I should ask her again.

I'm also not sure what it means to me if I do. That's a tough question to answer. On the one hand, it makes me feel like I'm even more f'ed up than I realized. On the other, it's sort of comforting to have a label, a reason, something like that, for why I've been f'ed up all this time. I think the answer to your question is a lot more complicated than that, but that's the long and the short of it. (Am I using that expression correctly? I'm not sure.)
