    I've been talking to this woman for a very short time. She is amazing. She is very well versed in BPD. She thinks that BPD can be beautiful . I think she called it a superhero power. I've been trying to maintain but I'm losing the battle. She gets it. She told me that she will stay even in a borderline moment. My friend told me to trust, because I don't.i decided to just screw it and trust completely.

    A few weeks ago I got the one thing I've really missed my entire life. Friends who get me. One even read about it. I got an intimacy that night that I didn't know I needed. So I officially didn't care anymore of finding a partner. A week ago she messaged me on an app I have pretty much never used.

    I want to know my feelings are real and not just the BPD grasping.

    I created this rule for myself, that I won't discuss feelings for at least a month. And no meeting family for 6 months. I want my next one to be real and lasting. Someone who sees me. And she absolutely does.

    I always feel like I need to come with a warning label, but not with her. I had a mini episode today and she responded in a way I never thought possible. She said I was having feelings and that's okay and she was happy I communicated. And she fixed it right away.

    I feel her... it's crazy.

    I'm trying so freakng hard to not jump. I feel like I can't trust my own feelings

    Devastation

    The Coronavirus Pandemic has been terrible. I've been anxious for months over getting sick. Finally, the Fall college semester rolled around, and during the first week I began to meet with all my friends again (with social distancing, of course) and to go to classes. I was having a good time. I even wrote down a whole schedule for the next week where I would meet with someone almost every day.

    I live in Louisiana. My family and I evacuated for Hurricane Laura at the beginning of my second week of school. I thought we were just doing it as a precaution and that we would return home in three days. However, Hurricane Laura destroyed our city. I've heard that it caused 2.5 million dollars worth of damage to my university campus alone. Our house is relatively intact (although it does have some damage), but our city is in shambles. We've been living out of hotels for about three weeks now, I think. Classes have been delayed and moved entirely online. I won't be seeing my friends much again, and I won't be around my peers. This is my last semester of college. I don't even want to go back to our city.

    On top of that, I've been around my family so much now, and we're all depressed and anxious. They're getting on my nerves, and we're arguing. Things were just beginning to look up for me, and then they all came crashing down again.

    Any advice would be nice.
