> The rest of the time, you treat yourself well, do things you like, think of the things you enjoy in life, do things you enjoy, see people you love, etc. In other words, you LIVE and enjoy life! Do not obsess on the BPD issue, you'll just hurt yourself and make yourself miserable. There is more to life than that, and you have so much to learn, do, feel - make sure that outside of this LIMITED time you take to deal with the therapy issues, you have fun and enjoy life.

Thanks, Sid for the advice. I am feeling better this morning -- no migraine thank goodness. I decided to get early and put my house in order. I am having an appraisal done today and although my house won't be perfect at least the kitchen is clean and some of the clutter organized. I decided to keep myself very busy over this weekend. So I will take a day trip to visit a friend and she is taking me out to dinner for a belated birthday celebration. I think setting time limits to think about the BPD (Borderline issue) is a good idea. If I think about or rather obsess about it I just feel awful and get very depressed. The migraine for me is usually a symptom that I need to take better care of myself. Thank you again for your help. If I have a hard time, I'll post again, Okay!!
