Think About It... Rumination is a mode of responding to distress that involves repetitively and passively focusing on symptoms of distress and on the possible causes and consequences. Ruminating often precedes onset of depression. However, emotional memory can be managed for those who are haunted by the experiences of their past. ~Joseph Carver, Ph.D

O.K., just for pondering purposes, what does it take to be in a relationship with someone suffering with borderline personality disorder?

I will come back with more.

Practicing Detachment

I think this is a topic relevant to all of the boards. We would discuss what it means to detach and the benefits of doing it. Maybe people could use examples from their lives but it isn't about their personal stories it is about the benefit of detaching.

I have noticed some violent reactions to pd behaviors, especially where coparenting occurs.

I think tools, techniques, or ideas for accomplishing this would be great!

I've thought that it would be nice to access some info, or a guide, to the process of dealing with the aftermath of a broken romantic relationship with a BPD.

It can be a devastating experience, in the severity of the pain and the longevity of that pain.

It might be a good idea to help people thru that pain by educating them about the process.

I believe that Lynn Melville is doing some work in this area. Is there anything we have currently available?

I agree with both topics above.

I am now at the 'now what do I do with myself' stage.

It is a very different place.

Maybe a rebuilding your life workshop. Focusing on the non helping the non deal with the aftermath once they have decided to move on for good. This may help retain some of the old timers who feel that they have moved on and the board no longer serves them.

A life after the relationship type of thing.


DONE

We started a new board for this purpose

This is a great topic and one I've thought about at length - along the lines of "I'm out, so NOW WHAT?"

What does Healthy Relationship look like?

How does someone care for one's self without sacrificing relationships?

Just because you put yourself first doesn't mean you are abusing your family & friends.

Soo.  How does this work Skip to actually start a workshop?
