BPD Male Here, New to Boards

Postby BrittleCrystal » Sun Feb 03, 2019 5:19 am

Hello everyone. I am a 35yo Borderline male who lives in the Northeastern United States. I am just starting to try to overcome my illness, though I've been aware of it since I was about 20.

I have a history of self-harm - hitting myself, burning, other - and severe substance abuse issues. I've caused myself brain damage while attempting to "drink myself to death". I thought I would never recover at all.

I have a partner who loves me deeply. I start seeing a psychologist on Tuesday. I haven't been in therapy for a decade.

If anyone wants to say hello and/or has any questions I would appreciate it. Otherwise, hello to you all! I will be frequenting this section of the forum, as BPD is my main diagnosis...

Hello, and welcome. Good for you for starting therapy again -- I'm working on that now, too. Been in and out of therapy for short periods of time for the last eight years, but I'm taking it seriously for the first time in my life. I'm even considering group therapy to push myself out of my comfort zone. Are you going the DBT route?
