About Me

They say you should blog about something you are passionate about. I am passionate about getting well.

I'm so glad you've stumbled upon my blog and hope you find something here that helps you.  Whether you have Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), think you do, or love someone who has it, know that there is help out there, and there is hope.

Self-soothing with a cup of decaf
My name is Debbie. I live in California, and I was diagnosed with BPD a few years ago but had been suffering from it for over a decade. As of 2013, following an intense commitment to learn and follow through with the practice of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills, I no longer meet the criteria for the diagnosis. DBT continues to remain an important part of my life on a daily basis.  I now actually co-facilitate online DBT classes worldwide at DBT Path with a licensed therapist to help my peers like YOU!

 I am putting my stuff out there because there are people in this world who have been through or are going through similar things - maybe not quite as bad, maybe worse. I want you to know that you are NOT alone. You are a survivor. You are strong, and no matter what anyone says, you can heal and get well.

I am in the process of healing and am in recovery.  I don't claim to be all well. I have my days where I backslide on a large scale, and I have days where I show a lot of progress.  As time goes on, I seem to be more aware and insightful, as I hope you will see in my writing. But, we have to remember, it is all a journey, and we each have a voice worthy of being heard.

I completed over two years of a weekly Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) group, which helps many conditions but was especially designed to help those with Borderline Personality Disorder, and it is helping a lot. I'll be talking about my experience in the groups in my posts.

You can learn more about me and my books, Healing From Borderline Personality Disorder: My Journey Out of Hell Through Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Stop Sabotaging: A 31-Day DBT Challenge to Change Your Life by visiting my Smashwords profile.
