So, I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder a couple of weeks ago. I have a friend who was diagnosed with the same thing a long time ago and I'm having to kinda rely on her experience for advice on how to handle it. The biggest, single, most important piece of advice that she gives me is to find a therapist, preferably one who specializes in borderline personality disorder. And I want to follow that advice, more than just about anything. Only one big problem: I'm broke. I have very little money and I'm using that to cover basic living expenses. I have no health insurance, either. How do I find a therapist to help me if under those conditions? For that matter, I can't even take meds to help stabilize my mood because, once again, I have no money or resources. I don't much like psych meds after some of the negative experiences I had with them as a teen, but..... I think I do need them, at least for now. Again, how can I get help here?
