Hello CalebCO, welcome to the group. Glad you found us -- it's a good place for support from people who really "get it".

How did you get the confirmation about your wife having BPD? Did she get an official diagnosis, are either you guys in counseling, was there an incident, etc?

Do you guys have any kids together?

Post whenever works for you, no pressure. Hope you can settle in here; we look forward to learning more about your situation and how to be there for you.

Welcome CalebCO,

You'll find a great community here. Seems like there are many modes to engage including just venting, asking for advice, and supporting others with your experience.

How did you find out? Does your wife know she has BPD?

Welcome to the community.

I've vented.  It was looking like Divorce, two weeks ago she hit her bottom [on a 22 year journey], and saw the light, now things are to change for the better.

Considering that she has been officially diagnosed, there is hope and it requires a lot of work on both your part and your wife's part to make it work -- I am not going to 'sugar coat' it. 

I can share my experiences if you are interested.
