Free online DBT course (with marked homework assignments)

I feel like all my prayers have been answered. I am still on a waiting list for DBT through the NHS and have been struggling through the DBT modules on my own, when I come across an online DBT group that not only gives you a weekly DBT lesson by email, they set you homework, and mark it for you too, to make sure you are on track! All of this is free, so I can only assume that these people are doing it out of the goodness of their own hearts – and with over 500 people subscribed to the course, I imagine that they are kept pretty busy!

The only criteria is that you have an e-mail address, and that you think you have/have been diagnosed with BPD, or feel that you could benefit from the DBT.

I can’t wait to really get my teeth into this, while waiting for my assessment appointment with psychological therapies which has come through for February 26th. I have also got my appointment for the Colposcopy which is March 21st, and I am trying not to think about it until then.

I had a better day today, spending most of the time pottering around the garden and staying relaxed. I weighed myself this morning (I know I said I wouldn’t but I couldn’t help myself) and have put on a lb – I don’t know how as I have been working really hard but I am due on my period so perhaps that is it. I haven’t let it bother me – I am just going to carry on as I am exercising.
