ive been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder as well as post traumatic stress disorder and im having a hard time accepting it. of course i agree with the diagnoses, its more like i feel like a loser more than ever now. i want to be "normal" and by that i mean i want to feel okay, and not be afraid that something is just waiting to happen to me all the time.
im starting dbt therapy and taking medication (switching from effexor to zoloft and a small dose of seroquel) and im having a hard time being hopeful. can you tell me of any success stories? how do i determine if its susccesful anyway?
