    My Mental Illness Journey Blog

    So recently, I have been so depressed and anxious and I am losing the will to live. I have been signed off work, again, I have been self harming - which I have never done before, and I have lost the will to live. I feel incredibly lonely. I thought it would be good to start a blog, something...

    I'm going to blog as much as I can about MBT

    I wanted to blog about what I'm learning in MBT, in the hope that it'll help me retain the information, and maybe help some people with BPD (or who have BPD symptoms) who are perhaps waiting a long time for therapy. I will be updating it every week. Here's my first entry.

    Hi, I've just joined. Getting to better

    Hi, I'm new here. Like many of you, I've had the "demons" inside my head tormenting me for my lifetime. Drugs help, but they muffle more than extinguish the pain. There is nothing worse than having your mind - the one thing you can't escape - turn against you. I'm hoping to learn how some of...
