First day back to work after b p d diagnosis
I'm extremely anxious this morning. I have not worked for over a year. I lost a dear friend and then almost lost myself to the depression and suicidal ideation i went thru.
I went through 2 months of residential and 3 months of intensive outpatient, and just recently received a diagnosis of bpd which really encompasses many of the symptoms and issues that I have. I'm frustrated because there's not really a pill to help, it's just the way my personality is and who i am now.
Trauma has made me now who I am. I have a lot of reservations because my temperament at times gets the better of me and I've put off getting a job. but at this point I can't any longer. I accepted a job almost an hour away from home.
I'm a single mom with 2 boys and I have split custody. I guess what I'm asking is for support as I embark on this new chapter. I'm really scared. But everyone says that I can do this. I can, right?
