Hey @LooneyToones 


just personally I think that anyone can learn to change behaviours at almost any age and 65 is still very much in the sweet spot for that 😊. I also have lots vested in this as well as I’m not young either at 52 and am really learning so much now. Possibly seeing a psychologist there may be more to gain than to lose, you always have choices to change psychologists as well if the first one doesn’t feel the right fit. In my opinion (not based on anything more than my thoughts) I think it might be helpful to approach the psychologists about the behaviours that are causing you concern. I have many over the top reactions too that I’m trying to learn to overcome. Many of us have BPD traits that cause difficulties without a full diagnosis of BPD. I’ve found it helpful to work through specific things(traits)  with a psychologist. I hope this helps.
