    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...

    My husband of 29 years (who I have 4 kids with) left me for a 18 yr old three months ago, my neighbour is still in contact with my husband and I found out last night that she was pregnant.

    My Denial Self..

    I've been thinking for a very long time to write, but I didn't know how to start or where. I looked up on google and I found myself here. My writing will be more like a kid explaining his story, so my apologies about that. Lets just start from the end, I am a 26 yrs old girl that has been...

    I’m so lost.

    I love to write. Ever since I was little, it’s always been the best way I can express myself. But I’ve written my stories and pain in a diary for so long and feel like I’m screaming into the darkness, where no one can hear me. I know nothing about forums, but I stumbled upon this in my nightly...

    Oops ....

    Hi! I'm, well, at this point I don't really who I am. I wanna talk to someone, but I don't want to talk to anyone... I'd rather they just read my mind. I wanna talk to someone, but I don't know what to talk about .... what do I talk about? Which part? How do I give what's in my head to others...

    My BPD ruins everything.

    Because I can not control my emotions I’ve lost jobs, relationships, even family members and friends are pulling away from me. I feel like I have no one and nothing. I just don’t know how to cope other than harming myself. It’s the only thing that helps but I want to stop. Any suggestions from...

    At a loss

    Hi I am new here and I joined because nothing seems to have worked and I don't know what to do next. I'll sort of tell you my story I guess: So basically I have a huge set of interconnected anxieties about anything and everything you can think of since I was a child e.g. work, health, sexual...

    Drove my friend away

    So, today I drove away my only friend who was patient with me. I had one of my episodes and became angry with him about social media. Then I find I can no longer see his Twitter page. I panicked and thought he is angry with me. Then I finally confessed to him that I suffer from BPD. Then I went...
