I hesitate to write this here because most people seem to be struggling. a lot of really intense stuff has happened in my life in the last couple months (I'll save you the details). in the past this would have led to very dangerous, maladaptive behavior that might have even landed me back in inpatient. and yet today I am thriving. I'm using all my coping skills (I do DBT), and for the most part my life is full of joy. I am so incredibly grateful, and I want to keep on living, which is new for me
my name is Camila, but only my family and most professors call me that, I usually go either by Kimi or Kae (nicknames I’ve gotten from my amazing friends from two different parts of my life) and I’m from Puerto Rico - most of the time I hear Kae more often these days since Kimi was more when I was a kid/early teen. I’m 24 years old now, and I’m a Borderliner, I’m the organizer of an online “group therapy” that focuses on learning DBT skills after I’ve been in a DBT program myself for the past 4 years. I also have depression, anxiety, ptsd, I dissociate, get a lot of sleep paralysis and so on, but all these things make me who I am today and who I am today is actually a pretty damn tough but kind person. I struggle with every day life even after completing the program because I’m fully aware this is a /personality/ disorder, so its a lifetime disorder (also have type 1 diabetes) and even though I lead a group of people, sometimes I need someone to lead me, and I gotta admit, I’m a little ashamed to even admit that... I shouldn’t be, I know, I just wanna /be/ the point instead of /make/ a point sometimes, I guess?
