Amandafran, I'm so sorry you are struggling with this and that things are so scary. It makes me sad that people put labels on us and make us feel unworthy, when it just isn't true at all. I was diagnosed as BPD and Avoidant PD some years ago and am now training to be a T. I have the help of a wonderful therapist, who sees people as unique and special rather than as labels and this has made all the difference. All the Ts and trainee Ts I have met have some difficulty in their early lives and I'm pretty certain that any one person in the world would have at least one PD if tested.

BPD is tough and makes life that much harder, but it doesn't mean you can't do the things in life that you long to do. Perhaps it may take a little longer. You have so much to give to the world, and an understanding that those who haven't seen the darkest side of life will never have.

DBT skills are excellent and, as Canadagirl says, are for everyone. I can understand that you would prefer to keep your relationship with your therapist as it is, but it is possible to learn these skills through Marsha Linehan's book on your own. He might then be happy to discuss your progress as part of your normal relationship.

My thoughts are with you. Go well. Please let us know how you are.
