    Interesting video about BPD and loneliness

    YouTube Seems interesting enough. The part where he says we can feel alone in a large group of people is the story of my life. My a-hole ex-relatives did that to me, yet somehow I'm in the wrong for getting mad at them. They frickin' deserved to get hurt by me.
