A day without sertraline 100mg

A day without sertraline for a BPD brings on sudden intense mood swings and changes to our brain’s biochemistry. It’s similar to someone coming along with a magic wand and transforming your character into someone you don’t even know or even worse, a ghost.

You begin to feel your emotions heighten without the medication. You experience emotional intense flashbacks. You just want someone to care but not to get too close. You want to hide in a dark room all alone and cry yourself into oblivion and ironically you enjoy it. You enjoy feeling again but you also remember the stability of being on medication. I was speaking to my cousin earlier and her local GP in Enfield said to her “Just be happy” even though she has bipolar and bpd? Like easy for them to say. Sometimes that can hurt those who take the courage to ask for help. Isn’t it about time that psychiatrists worked alongside general practitioners. After all, doctors examine the body but psychiatry examine the mind yet these blogs from the eyes of a sufferer helps research. It helps development to find a cure for all.

The Pain of the Borderline


Love hurts us all or should I say the wrong type of love. Love can make us feel afraid, feel desperate not to lose someone, or it can turn the other way.

Within an instant a borderlines pain can be extravagantly magnified in altitude to the point their pain is expressed in verbal threats which they don’t mean. Although this may classify as domestic abuse, the borderline is unwell. Domestic abuse is different. The perpetrator has capacity to know what they are doing but with the borderline their illness is preventing them from forming a singular identity and healthy relationships because they are afraid of what would happen next. Their anxiety magnifies but most of the time their words expressed in anger are defence mechanisms for comfort and support. It’s like they are screaming out for help wanting to feel validated, appreciated and loved. I think if we helped a borderline channel these negative feelings then we could heal them and their families. Love, patience and understanding is all it takes.

I am a borderline.

A mindful day

It’s been a while since I wrote anything at all that would influence the reader to be mindful of their surroundings and make a difference in this world so I’m going to start by discussing the phenomenon “The Secret” and explain the concept of mental health and mental illness.

I know what you’re thinking. How is philosophy and science related? We can’t measure the exact thoughts we have except our frequency can be examined. So let’s begin with explaining what the secret really is about.

The secret describes a law of attraction model where we can influence the circumstances, people and events around us just by thinking about it. I need to be really clear about this so the reader, as in you, understands properly. Okay so if we focus all our attention on something we want we are more likely to achieve it as our perception shapes the outlook of our universe except in regards to mental illness this isn’t that simple. It’s like when you lose an adult tooth. Its unlikely it will ever grow back because it’s not the mind but the body that teeth are part of. I bet you’re wondering well where am I going with this?

Really think about it. Take a second and to think well biological mental illnesses are part of the body but affect us mentally. Yes there are such things as chemical imbalances because I’ve felt it. I began to believe in the illuminati once and my outlook was beyond powerful. It was like I was predicting the future before its occurrence or that could have been a hallucination but can never tell.

Even though we have these great pholosophical concepts that keep us motivated to improve ourselves and our lives, we should never just assume that those with mental illnesses can just heal themselves by thinking about it because sometimes the illness is all theyve ever known so they don’t know how blessed it feels to live without mental illness.

Remember, keep science going and find new treatments. Less stigma and more understanding is a necessity.
