    Damned If I Do, Damned If I Don'T

    I'm in a program that specializes in BPD. I have group therapy from 10:15-11:30 five times a week. I don't like being in group because it makes me extremely uncomfortable and I try to say as little as possible. When I do speak, I'm very friendly. There's 8 people in my group...
