I am new to this group and fairly new to the dx. of BPD although I feel it is correct and I have struggled with it all my life but the dx. has always been recurrent major depression. I have just emerged from a two week episode of intense suicidal thoughts preceeded by some mania. I have not been right in over a year. I live alone, have always supported myself and I have no idea what the future will hold. I feel like a baby taking baby steps. I cant imagine going back to my proffession full time and cant imagine any other outcome.All I know for certain is that at all cost, I have to avoid what ever trigger sent me in to the terribly suicidal state and that is hard because I am not sure what it was.. I am thinking that, had I been hospitilized,, someone would have helped me with discharge planning.. anythoughts or advice?? I have a counselor but he is doing REBT. Not sure it is what I need.

I've been pretty stable the last few months. I haven't had a depressive episode in months and no hypomania. My meds really seem to be working. I was substitute teacher last school year but I recently found a part time job as a paraprofessional and I am happy with a set schedule. I'm doing so well and I hope it continues. My kids see a huge change in me and are proud of how well I am doing.
