    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...

    Intrusive Thoughts

    I have the most intrusive thoughts before I go to bed... I wish I had someone to talk to before I went to bed each night... I don't want to feel so alone... Last night was so bad that I prayed to God to put me into a coma. At least that way I wouldn't embarrass myself or hurt anybody else.
