I have been reading the books of Marsha Linehan, and I have come to the realization that 'BPD survivor' is no less than 'cancer survivor' or even 'concentration camp survivor'. People forget that.

what is a bpd survivor?

for me, a bpd survivor is one who survived having borderline personality disorder and, more importantly, its successful treatment, as treating bpd may be extremely painful for an individual

i think living with it is painful, treating is good? i dont know im on a quest of finding out if i have bpd myself.

Marina I

speaking from the experience of someone who has been through therapy (me), the therapy is very painful. I read about it in Linehan's books as well. After being stable for 6 years, I come back to therapy and I break down again, that's the idea

unfortunately. But it is worth it. It really is, so find the courage in yourself and go for it

Guys, who is here with BPD history (me as well)? Do you believe that BPD can be completely cured? How long have been your stable periods, and how effective was DBT?
Marina I

It's just that I have been stable for 6 years after 2 years of therapy: a year of CBT and a year of DBT.

But now I feel spiraling down, and had extreme ***al ideation last week. I went back to therapy and already have to call my therapist to stabilize myself. I feel like my brain is broken... does anyone relate to a story like that?

Hi, Marina, I've only gotten my BPD diagnosis last fall, and due to language barrier I've had very little therapy. I've never been stable yet, and I find your story quite inspiring , actually! If I can have six years of stability! Omg that would be

Alicia B

fantastic. As far as I know it's never completely cured, but I'm sure you can have even longer periods of stability. Keep working, you are doing so well, I am very very impressed by you!

Alicia, thank you so much! It's the dialectical behavioral therapy that helped me so, so maybe you can look for it when you can

do you know any good ways to prevent and treat depression besides pills? I mean, I know about sports and all, but maybe anyone can share some advice?

Hi Marina. Do you feel overwhelmed? I recommend mediation and mindful exercises. I used the headspace app. Good luck 🙂
