Every life is worth living — but sometimes tragedy happens, chemicals in our brain change, or simply, the daily grind beats us into a less-than-ordinary existence. How do we deal with these obstacles and choose to live through them? I’ll chronicle the quest to find meaning in suffering and share what I’ve learned from those further along the road.
And with that, perhaps we’ll discover the fight within us.

    If you need males with bpd to volunteer for interviews please contact me. I was diagnosed just over 2 years ago. I completed the year long DBT course. Yet I am still struggling. When I went through the dbt program I was the only male there,with 12 women. That made it even more difficult for me at first. It is so difficult as a man with bpd. The only one I can really talk to is my therapist.

    Hi Amanda… I hope all is well with you. I so enjoy reading the things you post but don’t always find them. Would you add me to your mailing list? Thanks, Kevin (
