The room in which I’m neither awake or asleep

Good evening, settle down quietly whilst you listen to the waves within my neurotransmitters sending complex messages to my delicate frontal lobe… Explore the depths of the darkest roots and the narrowing thoughts depression emphasises. After three months on the Sertraline my anger and impulsivity has been managed with the medication which I am immensely […]

The Isolated Borderline

To the partners of the sufferer. I know how hard you try to help your loved one. I know how hard you try and make communication. The days your loved one curls up in bed not ready to face the day whilst you put food on the table, the rapid mood swings with such emotional […]

What to say to a borderline during therapy

Psychologists and psychiatrists can play their part in treating a borderline by reorganisation.  Below I’ve listed ways how: Replace ‘you are too emotional and take things to heart’ with the words ‘I know you’re struggling, please can you explain to me what happened in more detail and why you feel the way you do? If […]

The mind of the borderline

We can create, we can love, we can heal  We can connect patterns, we have obsessions with positivity counteracting the depression within our brains, fighting for survival on a day to day basis. The stigma attached to the condition is degrading and decreases the worth of the survivor. Notice how I use the word survivor? […]

Criticism of the borderline

Can you imagine strolling through life asking others not to hurt you to only suffer from the after effects of institutionalized discrimination, psychological manipulation and have your life swept from you as if you’re to blame for the abuse you’ve endured out your life. When borderline ask for help for additional symptoms they haven’t experienced before their past is judged as […]

Till death do us part

A tree never forgets it’s roots right? Well nethier do people.  Observation is a gift. It’s a resemblance of being open-minded. I’m not one of those people who says “Get over yourself” or “You’re just being silly” if someone opens up to me about a problem. I’m the type of person who understands real world situations and what […]

You’ll want to read this!! Borderline & the INFJ

During my last borderline personality disorder crisis at the time I felt I had no control over the changes within my brain and focused so much on the labels and the permanent factor thrust aside them, I didn’t focus my attention on probability and how my memory can cause my anger. I’ve built on the […]

Have you ever let a friend down because of your anxiety?

I have, and this has always given me tremendous guilt. Guilt because when my brain doesn’t want to co-operate and you’re worried about how you will seem. You just want to apologise to your friend’s but they understand when you’re not well but slowly they begin to walk away from you like you’re a burden […]

Does it matter what others think about us?

As a borderline I often worry about what others think of me. How they see my image. How they see me as me. Are they able to see my struggles although more often than not I’m met with – you look fine. You’re okay. You tend to look deeper at your inner self at this […]
