Britain has voted for conservative to lead the United Kingdom for another five years. Amazingly, the majority of the voters were working class who have been on long demanding waiting lists.
This means far more pressure for us with mental health conditions as we will unable to get the long term intensive support we need to recover.
But why is Borderline Personality Disorder such a big issue and why is it stigmatised?
It is regarded as a disorder of “personality” when it’s a disorder of mood and a disorder of interaction with others. The sad thing is, many people do not know what this means. It means during times of crisis when people are struggling, when they are having their anger outbursts, when they are being pushed out of their work environments, when they are bullied and told well BPD is who you are; remember BPD is an illness caused by trauma and the over diagnosis of this condition is markedly worrying because people with BPD are not dangerous, we are scared. Other personality disorders are nowhere near as debilitating than borderline personality disorder.
Let’s improve mental health care services and lessen the stigma. The only evil I see is the people making cuts on local services, cutting police numbers, damaging our NHS and neglecting the needs of the vulnerable. We are not defined by our condition. We suffer from our condition.
So I ask please kindly reblog this post to end the mental health austerity and formalise a whole new treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder.
We are in pain and we are struggling to heal.
