GOOD EVENING @Julie77 @Thear5 @Sarz @Abs @LeahMcK @soul @Treve @alikeness @Fairy @Dolf @Former-Member @the-janelane @Srb @aggieg  @MaryMahem @Shaz51 @Determined @24601 @LustStarrr @Sans911 @Clancy @lisajane @Teej @BlueBay

I'm really looking forward to tonight!

Tonight I have a list of questions submitted by people through email and social media, about BPD. People were asked what are their burning questions and what are some of the things they aren't sure are myths or facts.

It's taken some people a lot of courage to ask some of these questions and I applaud them going to the effort to get a better understanding!

I will post the questions here throughout the night, for people living with BPD to answer what they feel comfortable answering. There's no wrong answer - you're all experts in your own experiences! 

So before we get into it - I thought I would throw it out there for people to introduce themselves (to the extent they can being anonymous) and ask you share a bit about what brought you here tonight Smiley Happy

Hey! I thought it'd be great to check in to hopefully contribute some answers to the questions. I'm 38 and was clinically diagnosed with BPD in 2014, and try and remain as proactive as possible, another reason I'm here Smiley Happy
