.  I've decided to start taking on board the suggestion that mindfulness & meditation can really help with BPD... Y'know, as long as I keep on taking the mega drugs.
I already do yoga but I don't want to go to do meditation at somewhere with religious connotations so my teacher recommended this Headspace online course. Even I can manage 10 minutes a day right? RIGHT!!!! (maintaining long term commitment & focus is another thing that's tricky when you have BPD. I'm in to everything deeply excitedly but very short termly.) 
So far so good, it actually made me super relaxed and still after a really rubbish brain day. Hopefully in the new year I'll start to be ready to face therapy again. At the moment dealing with outpatient treatment for eating & trying to stay day to day well is enough. I'll survive Christmas first!

Is DBT availabe for you? I'd really like to go to a skills group but Germany is very far behind that and it seems it is not covered by insurance either. Mindfulness is one core of DBT.

I haven't heard of dbt but I'm going to read up on it now. I have been offered cognitive analytical therapy which also uses mindfulness. Luckily I can get that on national health service.
