I'm a master's student, studying psychology. I recently came to the realisation (after convincing from my boyfriend and reading much on the disorder) that I probably have BPD. I live in a relatively small town where I know most psychologists and feel very uneasy going to see them about such a disorder, scince they are potentially my future collegues. I really want to work on this to get better, but I feel stuck, not knowing where to start. Is there any hope for getting past BPD without a therapist? I only have a mild form of the disorder. For example, I have not had any suicidal behavior in 8 years, and I have no addictions or severly impulsive behavior. Does anyone know something about self-help in this field? Any suggestions on where to start? Thanks for your help.
