    Going on a high again

    I was in a manic state about 6 weeks ago which lasted about 2 weeks before a crash. Now I am becoming elevated again. I feel like I'm on Ecstacy or something, everything is just buzzing. I actually hate mania after a few days because I don't sleep and I tend to sometimes indulge in risky...

    Am I REALLY borderline? Help

    So I’ve been in and out of different programmes for coming up to 2 years now. The doctor I spoke to recently has informed me (though not formally diagnosed me) that he believes I have borderline. Something about that seems off to me for a few reasons. Firstly, I only really believe I exhibit...

    People are stupid.

    Its no secret that I haven't yet been diagnosed with anything other than depression, anxiety, avoidant behaviours and PTSD through out my life. If people ask I tell them. I confined in a friend that I think I have bpd as I can relate ALOT to the behaviours and those who struggle with it. Its...

    Is there a link between borderline personality disorder and sex and love addiction?

    Is there a link between borderline personality disorder and sex and love addiction? Because borderlines struggle to be alone we crave intimacy. We have impulsive behaviours such as alcohol abuse and risky sexual behaviours? I'm just asking because I feel as though I don't really have much self...

    I don't know what to do anymore, please help

    I don't know where to put this as I don't quite know myself what I have anymore. I'm a 20-year-old female and as long as I can remember I've been very anxious, even as I child I would excessively worry over everything. I have always been an inflexible, die-hard perfectionist - I've tried to...

    Is this really me?

    A creepy paper in the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science describes humans as "superorganisms" made up not just of our own human cells, but cells of various other organisms too, and some of those cells that are not us can change our thoughts and behaviours. The full paper, Humans as...

    Have you ever had a therapist you felt was abusing their position?

    I don't know why I started thinking about this, but I had a therapist many years ago now when I was at my lowest point who was quite harmful to me. I have a habit of not knowing how vulnerable I am at the time I am vulnerable - I know in hindsight but at the time I think I'm 'not that bad' - so...

    Changing an Abusive Relationship

    In my opinion, fear or shame are the keys to controlling us. When we change this control mechanism, voices can change. So here are some points that may help: 1. Identify the trigger. When a voice makes a remark, note your body language and that of other people. Note what kind of environment you...

    How To Stop Self-Sabotage?

    I managed to fuck everything up. Everything. Because I feel as though I don't deserve a better life, because I feel as though if I try then I'll fail anyway. How does one begin to reduce self-sabotaging behaviours?

    Its All Relative?

    Ok, so this has been bugging me for ages now and I know this is the only place I know I can get a straight answer. Unless you've been down a similar path then other folk think you're being really thick. Anyway I digress. Ever since I got my diagnosis I've occasionally found myself flipping back...

    What is this similar to?

    Hi, I realise nothing here constitutes as medical advice but I was curious as to what you would call this series of behaviours. Possible theories of mine have been sociopath, aspergers etc... But the series of behaviours encompass some traits that are the complete opposite to what the labels...
