    Coping with self harm


    Self-harm is a term that has historically been used to cover a broad range of behaviors. It refers to deliberately causing pain or damage to your own body, and can be suicidal or non-suicidal in intent. Self-injury is a type of self-harm, and refers to deliberately causing pain or damage to your own body without suicidal intent.

    Self-injury is more common in young people. Some people who self-harm may also have suicidal thoughts.

    There is not just one factor that contributes to self-harm. Instead, there are a variety of biological and environmental issues known to cause self-harm, including:

    -Having friends or family members who self-injure

    -Experiencing stressful life situations like traumatic events, family instability and sexual identity uncertainty

    -Living in social isolation

    -Mental health conditions, like depression, anxiety and personality disorders

    -Drug and alcohol use or addiction

    What was the defining moment or incident that made you seek treatment for BPD?

    Living with a mental illness can be frustrating and unpredictable, even on the "good" days. When the "bad" days become more frequent or even unbearable — and you struggle to get out of bed, are forced to cancel plans, or miss work — you might decide that you need a little extra support.

    What made you seek treatment, either for the first time or after a length of time without it? Share your defining moment with us in the comments below.

    I'm back after a break... how are you?

    I'm in a mental health IOP currently after a hospitalization in December for a bipolar mixed episode.

    I'm taking it one day at a time!

    also have some new physical health conditions to add to the list that I'm taking care of!

    Inner child healing

    I’ve been watching this show on Hulu called Shadowhunters; there’s a character named Jayce and he’s been possessed by a demon. The possession took away everything in his mind to which equates to his lover is nonstop being murdered by him and he can’t control himself from killing her again and again as she keeps popping up. His brother and sister who are also Shadowhunters go inside his mind with the help of a warlock to search for the real Jayce. Since his sister and brother had been taken away in his childhood memories, the grown up Izzy and Alec (brother and sister) find the real Jayce and persuade him that they aren’t the demon in disguise torturing him again. The fact that the childhood memory was about them sword fighting and laughing their little selves out and then losing them in that memory, made me immediately think about my sisters and me, with me losing connection with them so soon in life. I was only in late elementary/early middle school when my younger sister stopped wanting to hang out with me and my other sister didn’t know how to handle my personality disorder (which we had no idea about yet). I blubbered like a baby during the entire thing and had to pause it to write it in my journal and here. #Anxiety #innerchild #Healing #Depression #PersonalityDisorders

    Are people with bipolar manipulative?

    Manipulation isn't a formal symptom of bipolar disorder, although some people with the condition may exhibit this behavior. In some cases, manipulative behavior is a result of living with another mental health condition, such as personality disorders #BPD #ubpd #bipolarworld #BipolarDisorder

    Do Narcissistic Women and Borderline Men Attract each other?

    People with Borderline Personality and Narcissistic Personality Disorders can find one another attractive and may actually forge more stable relationships with one another, at times, than they can with people without personality disorders. #BPD #narcissistic #MentalHealth #MentalIllness
