Anyone else ever feel this way?? #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder

I read in a book once about Boarderline Personality Disorder referencing how a person who suffers from BPD and how they feel emotions...they likened it to a patient suffering with third degree was like a lightbulb moment! I was like, “YES! I totally understand that rationale!” #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #intenseemotions


Feel I severely depressed, any healthy coping outlets?

I'm feeling as though I really hate myself and am feeling so much unbearable pain that I want to scream but can't. Has anyone developed any healthy coping mechanisms or a healthy outlet for these intense extreme emotions? It feels as though I am feeling all of the pain that I have ever felt all at once.

I have e-mailed the Samaritans but I am just crying so much and feeling so panicky and have just been binge eating all day.

Big Empty

If I had wings, I'd leave everything behind. I've been dealing with a lot at work and at home. I have men in my life in both of those places and none of them pay attention to me. I never being up me internal struggles to many, I find myself thinking about it all at work only to cry myself to sleep in the safety of my bedroom. That seems to be the heaven for me, while outside is Hell itself. I still struggle with the idea that I'm needed in this world. In my mind, it feels like I'm unwanted, disregarded, and occasionally acknowledged. I sit on the bathroom floor after coming home sometimes. I'm either letting things sink in or I'm crying my eyes out while trying not to make a lot of noise. I count they days until I see the psychologist. More and more I feel empty inside. More and more I feel like I need to distract myself from these intense emotions. More and more I think about dying. I don't expect much anymore, nor do I feel that there is anyone who can really understand me. #MentalHealth #Depression #Sadness #Emptiness #intenseemotions #Feelingunappreciated #feelinglonely #FeelingEmpty #Feelingsad #insidemyownhead #keepingthingstomyself #heaven #hell



Sometimes, I feel content in my sadness. Sometimes, I’d rather feel numb than to feel everything intensely. Sometimes it’s the other way around. This morning, I kept telling myself that someone abandoned me and that I should just give up on expecting things from people period. Everyone seems to have their reasons for leaving. I personally feel that it’s because they got bored of me, or that they were only around to lead me to think that I could trust them and they told their new friends about me and whatever private information I’ve told them. Or simply because I’ve become unlike able to them after a short time. Either way, everyone wins while I lose another battle where everyone else except me knows who wins. Lately, I’ve been wondering why I’m still alive. I wonder why I still hold on to people who are too busy entertaining other people. Why do I feel like I should die whenever I feel rejected or left behind? I’ve got many questions, and probably two answers. #MentalHealth #Depression #SuicidalThoughts #IntenseFeelings #intenseemotions #PeoplePleaser #peopleleave #sometimes #Sadness #numbness to everything #holdingontopeople #reasonstoleave #Catch22 #WhyAmIHere #Rejection

Why Am I Still Here?

I feel intensely depressed, guilty, lonely, sad, frustrated, and many other things. I feel like it would be better for me to just disappear. More so than ever, I feel very, very alone in the world. Maybe the day of my leaving this world is better than me being alive at this point. If I died today, I could think of five people who would care, everyone else has seemed to forgotten about me or has left me behind for other people and things. Nothing really matters, not even myself. #Depression #MentalHealth #feelinglonely #FeelingEmpty #Feelingsad #feelingaloneandlost #Lostmyjoy #Lostinlonliness #lostinlife #SuicidalThoughts #SuicideIdeation #lowselfesteem #whybother #Guilt #Loneliness #frustration #moods #intenseemotions


Trying to Regulate #Anxiety

I’m still recovering from intense emotions from Friday. That day, I felt incredibly overwhelmed, anxious, frustrated and even furious. I spent much of the weekend ruminating in my head everything that was thrown at me. But as soon as I resolved everything mentally, I’ve been dealing with the leftover intense emotions. I woke up with a tight feeling in my chest and upper back. I’m feeling antsy and irritable. Right now, though, lying down to recuperate is not much of an option because I’ve got things to do. I just want these intense feelings to go away; they’re standing in my way of everything, and it physically hurts!

#CheckInWithMe It has been a horrible day 😭

A few hours ago i heard some devastating news that had me have a full blown panic attack and #suicidal in less than three hours of the event. I 've been suicidal in most of my life already. But today i feel extremely foggy and like i 've lost my mind. I can't keep doing this anymore. The news i received made me feel to blame for a decision i made that turned out terribly. It is a lot to handle and i am wondering how can i go through this alone. I feel like i deserve to die for making this decision and i wish i could turn back time. But i can't. 💔

I could try and set an appointment with my therapist but i feel like she will disregard my feelings and won't understand. I don't know what to do. 😭 I am lost in my thoughts and i feel like i can't recover from this, like this is the end. I know i don't deserve it but i need someone to be here and hold my hand and tell me that everything is going to be alright. I 've been deprived of this for a very long time. I cannot fight alone anymore. How can a person survive mental illness with no support system?

I do not know what to do. It seems like a dead end. I feel i cannot handle my emotions or even collect my thoughts.

Worst Part of #BipolarDisorder : Intense Emotions

I’ve been feeling strong emotions this week. Monday, I got super attached to a guy I had just met. I was disappointed and a bit depressed when he didn’t respond to my simple text, basically ghosting me. I do have a problem getting too attached to people too quickly; it’s ridiculous. Yesterday I was irritable all day to the point of almost screaming at people. Today, I slept pretty much all day out of depression; I only got out of bed an hour ago. Sometimes my emotions are so intense I could barely - or I’m unable - to handle them. It effects my life nearly everyday. Managing them is so tough because they are so strong that I don’t know what to do.
How do you handle your intense emotions? How do you deal with them on a day-to-day basis?

Is this tool or technique helpful? #intenseemotions

#Anxiety #Depression #BipolarDisorder #PostTraumaticStressDisorder
Grounding can sometimes help us cope with intense emotions. Often this tool is something that we talk about post an intense therapy session. It can sometimes be helpful to seal away painful thoughts, your #Therapist  can help you find one that works for you if you like this idea.

1. Imagine yourself putting your thoughts, like books, away shelves in a library. Lock the doors.
2. Imagine placing your thoughts in a box. Seal the box and hide it away in a safe place. Only you can open it.
