Wow!! Never been on a forum like this before. Guess not many people use it. From the names I see looks like we all have a lot to say and we are many . What I am really looking for is some insight . I have gotten to a point where I do not have many friends.Don't want any. Hardly any due to the fact I don't trust the world so because I am kind of cut off I don't know what people think about the world. It does feel good, however, that I am not the only one with this 'thing' , call it illness or condition, or whatever. I have been told I am a good' borderline, having borderline traits .Can someone tell me what is so good about being any kind of borderline?. It's hell. Always paranoid, extreme thinking , defensive, emotionally dangerous and explosive and never letting anyone see the neediness as though I can hide it. Then there is the depression, the emptiness and the numbness. GOOD Borderline?! Yeah right!
