"I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder about 6 years ago. I am now 35. I feel as if life has passed me by because as someone with BPD I just can't seem to make any type of relationship last or work. There is so much pain I feel all the time. I am so depressed. I just keep hurting people who I try to get to know. No one in my family is even speaking to me right now. Everything in my stinking borderline life pretty much sucks. I don't even get why "this" is happening to me. My question is, can I really recover from Borderline Personality Disorder?" -- Mary Mcallistar - Alberta, Canada
BPD Coach A.J. Mahari responds:
Mary, so much of what you describe is often expressed by many of my coaching clients who have Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). It is important to give yourself permission to feel how you feel without judging yourself. Having Borderline Personality Disorder is a complicated and complex way to experience life. Having BPD is often a very painful experience for those diagnosed with it.
Recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder, in some circles, still seems to carry with it stigma and controversy. However, as one who myself recovered 14 years ago, yes, it is possible to recover from Borderline Personality Disorder.
