ptsd therapy
In therapy 10+ yrs. BorderlinPD, Ptsd and Major Depressive Disorder. Dr’s say I can live a better life? T/F?

Is there anyone out there who been in therapy and on meds this long that believes there is still hope. I don’t believe any of this is worth it, I don’t have the will, want or motivation to keep working especially towards nothing!

Hi,
I suffer from similar conditions to you and have been in therapy for an extensive amount of time.

I won’t promise you that it will get better. Mostly through my own experiences, my life changes like the seasons. I will have periods where I’m okay – just okay. Then I will have bad moments but fundamentally I have learned that I tend to live through the bad moments. I don’t live well – I quit jobs, change my name and move states.. but here I am, still living, breathing and able to post a response to your question.

Recently I have become accustomed to the idea that I will most likely be in therapy for the majority of my life and due to this realisation, I have terminated my study in a Psyc degree because of it. I am having a lot of trouble with Depression in the wake of my decision. But I know that my life will go on, I’ll move onto something different and really, who knows what the future will bring?

All I can tell you is to stick it out. Change therapists if you would like – maybe you need a different approach, I’ve been to at least five different therapists before I settled on my current one. Be open to trying new things, I participated in group therapy a while back and quit it because it wasn’t working. Now in my everyday life I use things that I learned in group to cope with different situations and really I think it has been quite helpful. Be open to change and let change happen.

I don’t expect this answer to help you that much. You’ve probably been told this time and time again. I know I am saying it because it’s what I’ve been told. I really have no other advice… hold on and good luck xoxo
