I have BPD traits and PTSD that make it difficult to relate to people. Any tips on what has helped you adjust to society enough to build some healthy relationships?

@oanaM I feel for you saying you don't know about letting anybody else in after this.

I wish I had an answer for this.. I tend to minimize the amount of social interaction I have in life. I avoid situation that might trigger me.. When I do interact with people I tend to do it on a subject that is very calming to me technology. My love of tech has pulled me through most all my dark time and I have now converted that love into a career and have earned a rep as the IT Nerd (A Title I wear with honor).

This has allowed me to have most people talk to me about tech which is both calming and fun for me.. So maybe if you have a passion that you really enjoy and find calming find away of bringing it into your social life.. find friends with a common interest etc...
