What side of the brain do you use?
The interaction between both is a game of volleyball, a confusing element within its features, a comprehensive account of our genetics and memory processes…
Skills are what motivates us. Experience is what shapes us. Atoms. That’s all we are atoms.
I thought I’d do a post after seeing a post on Facebook about a kind hearted young girl taking her own life because of borderline personality disorder caused by abuse.
I just want to point out the effects of borderline personality disorder and how it may impact on caregivers:
- BPD are loving individuals
- They are not dangerous
- They are warm and caring
- They isolate themselves when they feel too overwhelmed, they become angry when they are afraid
- They experience extreme mood swings when faced with interpersonal trauma and/or distress
- They think with their heart
- Its one of the most commonly recognised personality disorders
- During a crisis the sufferer loses control – as a result this can lead to suicide or intense emotional reactions to triggers that relate to the sufferers interpersonal traumas.
- They have problems interacting with others and dissociate to mask their inner pain
- They feel lost and abandoned the majority of the time
- If intensely bullied/abused may experience delusions and hallucinations
- Is often confused with Histrionic Personality Disorder, dissociative identity disorder, bipolar disorder, ptsd and narcissistic personality disorder.
- It’s not a label, it’s neurological and affects the areas of the brain responsible for controlling mood
- Creativity, drama therapy and music therapy helps with restoring the individual to a normal level of functioning
- Can affect relationships and are at risk of further abuse
- Are often criticised by the healthcare professions who don’t understand during a crisis the illness can take over the mind of even the most high functioning borderline
- This needs to be removed from the personality disorders category because it’s the only personality disorder to have the highest suicide rates and personality disorders start before the age of four -bpd is the result of abuse.
Ancestry is such an important part of genetics and how genetics can influence our thoughts and behaviours. I’ve always been fascinated by ancestry because I like to relate my hobbies and goals and discover who I am through history.
When I was younger I found out some valuable information. My great grandfather served in the war and worked on his own radio station within his home using morse code. He was a loving gentleman and I miss him in more ways than one. His ancestry dates back to France. When I loved Egyptology and archaeology he would give me an album of pictures as a child and I enjoyed flicking through at the black and white photographs. His grandfather was Louis Pique who was a selfless altruistic person who enjoyed helping others but was often thought of as a strange individual. His history is currently in Dover Museum. I loved the violin as a child but had to give up this hobby when I moved to Stevenage although music will always hold a special place in my heart. Below: Louis Pique.
