    I suffer from dissociative fugue or commonly known as BPD Amnesia (temporary amnesia moments)

    Associated with BPD refers to the feeling of losing time. Even though the individual is awake, they may be unable to recall where they were, who they were with, or what they were doing. #ADHD #Autism #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS #Depression #BipolarDisorder

    ...like way too often recently. You too?

    Good evening everyone!
    Long-time listener, first time caller.

    Every time I've wanted to post in the past 6 months, I've either been too far down at the bottom of the well to find the energy and courage and just couldn't, or I've been functional enough and riding high and definitely wanted to avoid revisiting what I just escaped from and can hardly check in here. I'm assuming that's par for the course.

    That being said, just wanted to say thanks to all of you who could overcome that issue and share your stories with me. You've definitely helped me when I needed it most.

    Why I chose the name Sunantilambanomai.

    Essentially, this is a Greek word from many centuries ago that describes someone who joins you in your struggle. It is a description of someone who sees you struggling with something and steps in to help pull or carry the weight of the burden that you are facing. When I first heard the word it was described in the class as, “to pull with someone against something that is trying to overtake or overwhelm them.”

    Picture the classic tug-of-war scenario. On one side of the rope there are people or things that want to defeat you and on the other side of the rope is you doing your best to withstand the heavy pull from your opponent, using every bit of strength you can muster.

    Like me, I’m guessing that many of you have lost the tug-of-war many times. Because of my illnesses, with the weaknesses and limitations that come with the territory, I’ve done my best to be strong, yet ended up being pulled into situations and circumstances that I had no viable coping skills for. As you may well know, It’s a deeply awful feeling.
    BUT, now imagine the same tug of war scenario where the opponent is the same, but you have someone else, or even a team of people on your side of the field that are pulling with you on the rope against these things that threaten to defeat and destroy your well being....physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually.

    That is what SUNANTILAMBANOMAI is all about. These forums within The Mighty that allow for open discussion with people who have had such similar struggles who can encourage and share information - this place is an example of what it means to experience Sunantilambanomai.

    Some days I can join in with someone on their side to add some strength to the pull on their rope so they don’t get jerked out of their stance and lose to the enemy. Some days y’all interacting with me is just like you pulling with me, adding strength and therefore I can better withstand my opponent without losing the battle.

    I think this whole website is incredibly valuable. We can relate and not feel so alone in this fight. We meet people who “get us” that we never would have met otherwise. This community makes me feel so much less alone. Thank you all.

    Today's Battle Won

    The perpetrators came home. I panicked
    and packed my bag and ran to Central Park.
    Hate swelled up in my heart, transforming it.
    Just before, I had been all light. Now dark,

    I wanted to go on the hunt for prey.
    Horrors of the past threatened to choke me.
    My reality was slipping away.
    Fighting back, I reached for a friend, "Help me!"

    Over a meal, we tended to our wounds.
    Our discussion was sobering at best.
    To have him as a friend is such a boon!
    I pray our friendship will pass every test.

    As to my yesterdays and tomorrows,
    whom can say? Today, I'm done with sorrow.

    Heart Beats

    World swirls.

    Deep breaths,


    Don't move.

    That's it.

    Calm down.
