    Petrified my boyfriend will commit suicide

    Hi there, thank you for your time. I’m extremely worried about my boyfriend and our relationship. We’ve been together for 4 months now and in that time his depression and anxiety has gotten so much worse no matter how much I try to support him. He says there’s no point in him staying alive and...

    Loneliness

    How does everyone else deal with the loneliness? When you feel a burden to everyone and get told your texts are too long so then you feel like they’re dreaded, where do you turn?! Can’t cry it out that’s not an option just feel empty and pointless. Why can’t I just get a little support not from...

    Making/Keeping Friends...

    So does anyone else find that being a sufferer of BPD that it’s really hard to maintain friendships? I mean, I don’t know if it’s because of the paranoia in the sense of you always feel like such hard work or a burden and therefore must be difficult to be around and be friends with and because...

    I'm doomed to stay single for the rest of my life.

    I wasted my 20s not achieving what I want. All gone due to my paranoid schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. I want to fall in love with someone. I yearned for it for decades. Especially who likes to share hobbies with me (Anime, computers, etc.). I want to date with a girlfriend who loves...

    7 years later

    I joined this forum in 2012 having been diagnosed with BPD and was frustrated about a further diagnosis of a functional disorder by a neurologist. It is 7 years later, I am now an old/er lady of 69 years of age. In those 7 years my life has transformed. I have completed DBT and my physical...

    I’ve lost the will to live

    There are so many reasons, I could write a book. But that won’t work, and it’s one of the problems. I spent the day lying on the couch, with the occasional tear leaking from my eyes, despite the meds that used to work, preventing the ability to experience this type of relief. I’ve got no one...

    Should I be concerned?

    So my mother's terminal illness, a brain tumor, is probably going to kill her very soon. Lately, Im wishing it was me dying, not her. I also wish I could die, so that I don't lose her. My life is a nightmare now. The only relative who understood me (whilst not getting everything right) is gone...

    I feel nothing, and then too much.

    I've been laying in bed for almost 3 hours now, staring at the cieling. I don't know why I do this, why I just lay there doing nothing, thinking nothing, and feeling nothing. I have things to do, I'm a busy person and I'm still in school, but I can't bring myself to do anything, I don't want to...

    Here to heal.

    Hi. I found this forum recently and didn't have the courage to join until today. I've set up a thread explaining my problem and the type of OCD I have. I'm essentially here to try and heal and come to terms with myself. Maybe even come to like myself again after so many weeks of stress and fear...

    I'm so scared of growing up

    So this might be a little long so I apologize. Please bear with me. Here's the thing. Recently I've been thinking about life and how I'm almost done with my first year of college. And honestly I realized how terrified I am of getting older. I feel like I'm stuck in this fantasy of wanting...

    Hello every one. This is my first time here. I am just seeking some support and some advice/intervention on how to deal with a paranoid partner. It is taking a toll on me mentally, emotionally and financially.
