    BPD Defined

    Borderline personality disorder is a mental health disorder that impacts the way you think and feel about yourself and others, causing problems functioning in everyday life. It includes self-image issues, difficulty managing emotions and behavior, and a pattern of unstable relationships.

    With borderline personality disorder, you have an intense fear of abandonment or instability, and you may have difficulty tolerating being alone. Yet inappropriate anger, impulsiveness and frequent mood swings may push others away, even though you want to have loving and lasting relationships.

    We here can a person turn ? #ChronicPain #Depression #PTSD #mentalillnesses

    Hello I come here an post or browse an chat or voice my opinion on others post an I usually do it without being honest, being I don’t actually post something’s that bother I just don’t think of them or it whatever they are called . So on this post I thought I would ask how can a person deal with the fact that they can’t post or tell you what bugs because of what it was , the reason something or someone hurt me an the way it happened is not safe to post I don’t want to tell people I know because I don’t think I can handle or trust they would not bring it up or tell others so I just can’t say anything . And then there is the mental Dr. Who tells me they will report to the police if they feel it was a crime or if needed and being I believe that’s what they gonna do and being I’m not really comfortable with being questioned about it I have no interest in telling a Dr so I am telling you this because I at times want to talk about it instead of just pushing it aside . So my question is what can a person do ? If they can’t just talk about it . Because it’s not easy when you end up alone just because you are not comfortable talking about something and it affects you enough that you don’t actually socialize or go out or can’t make friends because you push everyone away how would you deal with something like that ?
    I do want to add that I did not hurt anyone nor did I commit a crime but that what happened can be considered both of those things . Anyone got advice they can share ?

    I’m feeling bad because I have to stop helping my sibling , am I wrong ? #ChronicPain #PTSD #Depression #mentalillnesses

    Hello I have made the decision to drop my phone account because I have a family plan with six other family members an two of them don’t always pay , so around 3-4 years ago my sister asked me for help to get on my Verizon service plan I chose to help her she after like a month got her boyfriend a phone on my account as well and I let her because she promised she would pay their part well she did for like 6 months she made her payments for their devices an services but after that she started not making full payments being short every month started with a 20 went all the way to me have to put $150 just so I wouldn’t get my phone shut down well this last month after begging her repeatedly month after month she still skipped out on $60 this last month well I used up my savings I got a couple hundred dollars left and I need a water heater for my place so I have decided to cancel my account because I am under contract with all the devices on my account and I can’t pitch in for my sister and her boyfriend anymore, I feel awful about it but they are both older than me and earn more money so it’s like no way I don’t want to anymore. Am I wrong for doing this to my sister ? I feel I am but I don’t actually think I am .

    The emotional pain of families disinterest.

    I find it deeply sad and soul destroying, that if I mention what I’m struggling with to my loved ones, the answer seems #yesweknow when wanting to share the rapid intensification of #symptoms of either #Bipolar or #BPD or #Depression etc…

    Please remember friends, find your tribe. The people who #Suffer and live with what you do. This is where the #Understanding and #Kindness you’re seeking will be found.
    I don’t believe anyone, no matter how much they love you, can even get a tiny glimpse of your #emotionalpain .
    Don’t blame,, find others who feel and understand and have similar #mentalillnesses .
    I hope this little nugget helps you in your #journey back to you.

    The snuggles and struggles of the everyday when suffering from #mentalillnesses

    Sometimes, for me at least, struggling with my mental health and the mental health side effects that was caused by my mental illness becomes an impossible juggling act.

    From my medications to my emotions to something as small as going to the supermarket and having my phone ring while I’m there can shoot me into an incredible panic. Having your mental illness be seen as “being dramatic” and “over sensitive” and “an attention seeking tactic” to being told “you enjoy it, you tell people you have it” makes us really hard for me to deal with things.

    Today was a bad day and I had my own struggles and feeling pushed aside because someone doesn’t like that I have it and doesn’t want me to disrupt them with my struggles. Teling your brain what other people say and think is bs is easier said than done.

    If you had a bad day I hope tomorrow goes beter, if you had a good day I hope tomorrow is another good day.

    Bipolar Disorder #BipolarDepression #BipolarDisorder

    Bipolar Disorder has many
    different faces. Bipolar Disorder is diagnosed when someone has episodes of mania that can change to depression. However, there are different types of the disorder as if being diagnosed wasn't enough.
    Bipolar 1 - Episodes
    of extreme mood changes that go from mania to extreme depression.
    Bipolar 2 - Milder
    mood elevation with milder episodes of hypomania that alternate with periods of severe depression.
    Cyclothymic -
    Describes brief periods of hypomania alternating with brief periods of depression that aren't as severe as the former two.
    These are three of the
    common diagnosis for Bipolar Disorder. Mixed episodes and rapid cycling are also considered different aspects of the disorder. A lot of times there are other mental disorders that accompany Bipolar Disorder as well as Substance Abuse.
    People are often
    misdiagnosed for many reasons. Often Depression is diagnosed and Substance Abuse can make it difficult to tell the difference between mood changes. Web MD has some good information about all spectrums of Bipolar Disorder. They also have a self check guide.
    Although Bipolar Disorder is
    lifelong disorder, there are various treatments that can help with the symptoms. Along with therapy, there are medications that also help which can include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, and others.
    May is Mental Health
    Awareness Month. There are plenty of resources online that can be useful in helping doctors recognize the signs and loved ones can do research to understand more about the disorder. There's so much stigma attached to Mental Illnesses so it's important to do research.
    If anyone needs to do more
    or are experiencing a crisis, NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness) has great resources and a helpline for emergency situations. Stay safe. #BipolarDisorder #mentalillnesses #WebMD #treatments #Stigma #MentalHealth

    Does anyone else out there get anxiety over specific cleaning tasks? Cuz I do 🤷‍♀️. #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder #Anxiety

    I find that vacuuming is one of my triggers. Even just thinking about needing to do it makes me anxious.

    Does anyone else have anxiety over cleaning? If so, how do you work with your anxiety? I'm more asking as a fellow person with anxiety looking to discuss this topic...not looking for specific answers for myself, necessarily.

    I've decided to do another compilation post for all those who feel their bucket being filled by seeing first-hand, or seeing photographs of, flowers! I know my bucket is filled in this way!

    This Springtime season is such a great opportunity to admire the beautiful flowers that are out there. Whether they grow naturally or whether someone planted them, they make a difference in my life. Is anyone else like me in that way?

    Once again, if you are wanting to reference a specific photo, please let us know the number assigned to said photo!
    Does seeing flowers fill your bucket??
