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.
And, an article with a pic of me in my Lady Gaga Halloween costume…
► PS This week I guest blogged for the Roanne Program on Living With BPD. It’s a really encouraging post, and I hope it helps you in some way. Check it out, and let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading.
