I feel the same way.
I have largely isolated myself from people because of this. Therapists tell me that is not a healthy way to handle this, but it sure does cut down on the abuse when there is no one around to abuse me. And I donít need to worry about who finds out what a horrible person I am because there is no one around.

I hope everything works out well for you with your boyfriend. I hope all of us with BPD find the most comfortable place for us to be and we are able to stay there.
