    wow…had a few tears there. I have suffered since I was 14 and from the age of 16 was misdiagnosed so many times and forced to take all this medication for things like bi-polar/eating disorders/manic. It made my life even more of a living hell. Last year, after yet another destructive relationship, I tried to kill myself and ended up in a clinic. I was properly diagnosed and received DBT. I had never even heard of BPD or DBT before that. Now I feel like a new person. I am off all medication and am finally making a life for myself; a stable life. Simply being aware of the way my mind works has helped more than anyone could imagine! I just watched this video with my boyfriend and we both agree it is beautifully done. I feel it explains things so clearly. Thank you so much x
