One sad part of BPD is the we do have people and social institutions to reach out to, but we FEEL we have no one to reach out to. Our (my) feelings deceive us (me). They lie to us. For me and I believe all of us feelings dominate us, determine our reactions, dictate our decisions. If my brain was not defective all these years then my thoughts, my reasoning would be more of a guide for me, but, alas, no. :( I send to you love, empathy, and desire for you to reach out to others even though you do not Feel they are there. They are there. We are here. I am here.
Very kind and wise words, Larry. Just want to say the same words to you - you too deserve the kindness and support so never hesitate to reach out.
