    Do these fleeting thoughts classify as mood swings?

    Within seconds or minutes my mind changes from “let’s move forward, go to college, work hard and get a good job and better yourself” and then the next moment it says “don’t bother you’ll be dead soon, enjoy the remaining months of your life” And I have episodes of crying, irritability and...

    What has happened to him? I need some advice? I’m stressed out!

    Nick (my ex psychiatric nurse) used to pass me in the way to work of the morning every now and then. I’m also friends with his sister on Facebook but I do not know her personally. I look often to see if he has liked his friends posts as that is a great indication that he had been active and...

    Identity Disturbance

    I'm highly interested in this area of BPD because it seems to be my most prevalent symptom. I have absolutely 0 sense of who I am at all times. It never goes away. I'm newly diagnosed and have yet to begin therapy, so I'm inquiring about others' experiences with development in this department...

    Can someone help me out quickly please? What does this mean? I’m very upset.

    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...

It...

    Hearing someone after my mom passed away

    After my mom passed away, I started feeling my bed rock. As if somebody was kicking it. 2 nights later, I was lying down and I heard “no” repetitively. It was a distant muffled high pitched males voice (presumably) and it was ceaseless. It stopped after 10 minutes. I was walking around the room...

    The pain of being love starved

    It is my understanding that a lot of the anguish folks with psychological issues are forced to endure often comes from the place in their heart that their parents failed to continually fill with the unconditional love every child deserves and needs, so it remains a gnawing (black?) hole. This...
