Hi i have just joined this site and it is so good to read what others have written on here and to see how strong people can be which hopefully might give me a kick up the bum as i need some inspiration. Ive been a mess in my head for as long as i can remember but nobody would have known cos i was so good at being the witty sociable one but i have finally been diagnosed with bpd. Its a relief to know its not just me being a silly cow and a bad person. I'm determined to get myself sorted and find some inner peace for a better life for me and my daughter but have been told any kind of psychotherapy means a 9 to 12 month waiting list. I am soooo disappointed because i just want to put the hard work in and find a way to cope better with every day life. i dont know how i will get through the next 9 months with no help, its kind of like taking sweeties off a child cos i so thought the system would be there for me. My psychiatrist who i see every 8 weeks asked me what i wanted from the psych dept, which i didnt really know how to answer. Ive got an appt coming up soon and would like to have an answer this time, of what help i can ask for.So how do i do this myself? does anyone have the time (or the inclination) to explain how they got therapy (i'm poor and cant pay for private care). I've started learning reiki and meditation but im scared thats not enough, kind of feel i need more constructive help now. Am i asking for too much? Being a drama queen? Anyway just wondered what help anyone else out there might get. Thanks.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
