I'm a 30 something west coast stay at home Mom.  My husband and I have been married for about 10 years and have 2 children 5 & 8 yrs old.
I've struggled with depression for the majority of my life.  The past few years have been especially difficult with the stresses of postpartum depression and caring for our children.  Beyond the usual sypmtoms of depression, my irritablity, mood instablity, rigid thinking and general lack of commitment to living has led me to be diagnosed with traits of BPD.  After many years of psychotherapy and less than helpful medications, I'm currently participating in a DBT program to help me manage my symptoms.
The behavioral modification of DBT has left me wondering who I am under all the changes I need to make in myself.  I hope this forum will allow me to freely express myself, explore my thoughts & feelings and find others with like experinces.
