Identity Issues and BPD
Halloween always reminds me of how stuck I used to be with the Borderline Personality Disorder issue of a lack of a sense of identity (with the masks and costumes and all). Through much work through DBT, I no longer have this problem. I never, ever imagined that I could overcome the lack of sense of self that so plagued me. It is what ultimately led to my diagnosis of BPD and set me on the path of treatment.
Here are some posts from over the years on identity disturbance and BPD. I look forward to your thoughts on this topic.
