    Another good video, with a bit of a book review

    YouTube The key point is getting those in a BPD sufferer's life to understand what they're going through. That is hard when family likes to keep their damned heads in the ground like ostriches.

    Being steady

    Change of meds

    Since last October I've had my ad's changed every month. Now they've been stopped altogether since 2 weeks ago, and last week I was put back on anti-psychotics. No wonder my head's all over the place and I'm desperate to die.
