    7 months on :)

    Hi All it's been now 7 months since I have left all the groups in my local area and I am finally a stage where I am putting it behind me as I was told by someone a while back that you surround with positive that actually make feel good and although the people at the groups didn't lead me on to...

    New therapist

    So my depression has been getting in the way of my job (I work at a preschool, where my energy levels need to basically be through the roof and my mood needs to be stable and healthy). My boss noticed and gave me a few days of “grievance leave” and sent me some resources for affordable treatment...

    Got sent home from work yesterday

    My boss noticed I wasn’t quite myself and brought me into her office. She’s super sweet and kind and lovely and she made sure I understood this was not boss-to-employee, but rather human-to-human, and asked if I was okay. I basically had a total breakdown in her office and told her how I’ve been...

    Is pushing people away basically a fight or flight response?

    Like I noticed today I was in a great mood and decided I wanted to visit my bf at work. I’ve been in a funk the past few days and haven’t wanted to be around anyone, even him. But I figured since I was feeling a bit better I would visit. As soon as I was with him I felt all my walls go up. I...

    I feel nothing

    So I’m in the most amazing relationship with the kindest, most generous and supportive man in the world. I’m super in love with him and I love spending time with him. The problem is that when I’m depressed I very often dissociate and just tend to feel nothing. I can’t even cry when I’m...

    How do you tell friends you don't want to make plans atm?

    Basically what the title says, most of my friends understand I have periods of time where I really am too exhausted to make plans but one friend does not. He is unaware of my mental health and I don't really want him to know but lately he's been asking every other day if I'm busy or if I want to...

    Anyone else?

    So I find this hard to explain but, (I assume) due to my BPD, I find that I'm very in tune to others feelings. Particularly those close to me such as family. But I can't control it. It's like empathy where I can for some reason pretty much always relate to/feel how the person is feeling but I...

    BPD and romantic relationships

    Okay so I've come a long way in my recovery of BPD and I'm always having these little 'epiphanies' about my behaviors. I've just had another one but I wanted to know if anyone else has had the same issue or has any advice on how to combat it. So I've come to the realization that I've only ever...

    Partner's possible abusive ex

    Hey so it's been a really long time since I've felt the need to come here and post but I didn't know where else to ask for advice really. So he's not my partner but a new guy I'm seeing. It's been going pretty good, he's in the army so we've only been on one date and it was amazing, I've never...

    Finally, an answer (BPD)

    So, the past 3 years, I've been going on and off to different doctors, all of whom never took me seriously. In a last ditch effort after my most recent bout of depression and suicidal thoughts, I decided to try and see another doctor. And I think I have finally found someone who will take me...

    I don't quite know what is wrong

    Throughout my life, I've been Depressed, Suicidal, and diagnosed with OCD, Anxiety, Anorexia, and so on. I've always been really bad at asking for help and fairly resistant to the idea of going on medication (because of bad experiences being medicated too strongly when I was too young.) Now...

    Healthy ways to let them know you're struggling?

    Long story short, I have BPD and it's really making my relationship difficult for me at the moment, I need my partner's attention without annoying him. I respect his needs too but I'm struggling and I don't know how to tell him this without seeming like I'm "doing it for attention"

    BPD and relationships

    So it's been about maybe 2 years since I've been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, I've had a year of intensive therapy which didn't feel like it was doing jack at the time but now I realise it has actually helped me by teaching me to think in a slightly different way. Because of...
