Thanks, Violette. I appreiciate you sharing.

"If medications work, DBT could be viewed as unnecessary due to waiting lists, maybe people who might need it more, maybe people with severe cases. DBT could be potentially helpful for many (as people who have done DBT often say this regardless as to whether they are borderline)"

I really do not like the idea of taking medication and then DBT being unneccessary. I am not saying that I don't want to get better. You mention people who might need it more-- well, I want help too. I really just want one realy human connection where I can share things I haven't been able to share in over 13 years. I have turned inward upon it all until I feel like a phantom. Medication won't fix that.

You are right. Medication might help some of the depression and anxiety. My therapist said that in my case, it might be worth an experiment to see what happens, but he doesn't think it is my final answer and he won't make me do it.
