Re: Introduce yourself here

Hi I am enaged to my partner who has bpd. I have Asperger's syndrome, I love to read and watch movies and tv shows.
I am struggling to cope with my partners disorder as when she is triggered her reactions send me downhill. I just want to know how to handle conflict and difficult situations in a way that works for both of us!

Re: Introduce yourself here

A big welcome to everyone!

@just_me - it sounds like you have your hands full. I hope you find this community helpful. Feel free to start a new discussion, if you would like feedback on something specific. 

@Annieabella - There's a great thread you might want to start with called 'BPD Tips for family and friends'

@Newwave Welcome! If we can help point you in the right direction, just let us know. I love travelling also. Where has your fave place to travel been so far? 

Regardless of what brings you here, you are all welcome to join us for a chat in 'Hot chocolate anyone?' or 'Let's talk - how was your day today?' Looking forward to see you around the place Smiley Happy

Re: Introduce yourself here

I am joining because I don't feel very alone at the moment and I think it will help to see what others are dealing with. 

1. I like to sew and make craft items when I have time 

2. Reading novels is my alone time and escape

3. I try to stay positive  

Re: Introduce yourself here
