I had a friend once who had Aspergers and was very pleased about it. She was fascinating. And funny. Sarcastic. Could add and subtract with the best of us.

That aside, and it has of course nothing to do with you, but really was merely an aside, wait, or was it??

You know, when I figured out that I have borderline personality disorder, my psychiatrist, when I told him said that there are so many levels of these things, that people are so individual that few fit into these catagories in any cookie-cutter way.

So maybe I do fit some of the BPD criteria. But I am also just me, and there are many factes of me that are not BPD.

But when I did figure it out, the BPD thing about myself, it scared the living bejeezus out of me. I mean, the floor fell from under my feet, and I spun throught the universe untethered for a while. I hated it, still do in fact. But I take solace in the insight it has given me.

The thing about a diagnoses is that you DO take the parts that fit and DISCARD the rest. These things are not one size fits all.

Tai-chi is very cool. Very cool!!! In my city, in the mornings, there are Chinese people in the parks practicing. My psychiatrist uses it himself.

I am a black and white person, and I struggle with it daily.

And last, I send you many warm hugs. I feel for you so much, and wish you to get through this and out the other side with strength and insight.
