    You have mentioned that you have BPD. I have met a few people with BPD and would say that BPD can be characterised as a lack of inner peace. I understand that the pain is real and am not suggesting that it is not or that it can be magically removed using the power of positive thinking.

    BPD seems to be a temperament that people are born with. Perhaps finding total inner peace is not realistically achievable for people with BPD. Maybe the best that can be hoped for is a reduction in the lows to make them less intense and of shorter duration. I've seen this happen, so I believe that it is possible.

    P.S. Things seem to be moving in a positive direction with you mum and brother. If that is the case, that is great news. I'm keen to hear of any updates.
    Big change is coming

    Everything I've read so far seems to suggest BPD being biological & environmental. I do wonder who I'd be today, if I had lived another life.. But you're right, in that there's rarely any inner peace. I'll be posting to my blog a bit later in the day

    I think you should call your next baby Jamiroquai and swaddle him up in a hamas keffiyeh.
