Hi, I'm new here and newly diagnosed with BPD (also cyclothymia and episodes of depression). My psychiatrist sees me once a month to get the meds right: an a typical antipsychotic which knocks me out and an antidepressant. My cyclothymic mood swings are under control, I'm left mildly depressed so will be upping my antidepressants, but obviously nothing is targeting my BPD problems. I've been referred for therapy but there's an 18 month waiting list. I've done my homework since being diagnosed to find out what will help me. I have no idea what will be offered. It's on the NHS so I'm guessing it won't be DBT. Has anyone found other types of therapy useful? Things need to get better. I can't live like this forever. But I don't know whether to wait for this therapy or not.
