My name is Lydia. I am a 27 year old bisexual woman with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). This is my journey of healing through Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and various forms of support. This blog is potentially NSFW but I try and put "read more" tabs on the "unsafe" or possibly "triggering" content.
I have been in DBT now for a few years and I pretty much know my stuff. I'm not always perfect at using my skills and sometimes, I get willful and don't want to use my skills. But I have come to the conclusion that the best way I can help myself is to help other people. My therapist told me that I would actually make an excellent DBT coach. I am not a professional, but feel free to message me with questions. I will ask you if it is all right with you if I publish them because I would like the context to show my answers and perhaps help other people out with the same question. But I will respect your wish if you wish to keep it private.
I've been away for a while and I have noticed a sharp decline in my happiness. I think it is related to being away from all the support these BPD Tumblr blogs. Also, since I am going to be taking on a role of giving advice, I consider it my duty to be on more. I wish you all welll.
