    I have recently been diagnosed with complex PTSD and Borderline Personality Disorder. I have always known since a young teenager that something wasn't right, I didnt know what or why I was so hypersensitive with EVERYTHING especially when it came to the slightest of disagreements with friends, former partners and current. I havent started therapy as yet due to corona virus, the waiting list is long. how ever i have been educating myself on this illness I've been managing to cope with for the past 16 years, just.

    I am wondering if anyone else out there have been recently diagnosed, or if anyone feels comfortable enough to share their story and how they feel therapy has helped them? I have been warned by my GP that on the first couple consultations I will have to go back to my childhood and talk about the trauma, so I am intrigued to know about other's experiences with this kind of therapy.

    Having BPD is hard. and i find myself a lot of the time asking myself, is this my BPD talking or is this really happening? am i overreacting or am i being reasonable?

    thank you
