    Can our Pets catch our BPD

    I have a Rottweiler that was gifted to me from a friend who owns the parents of Maddy. Maddy does not act like her parents instead I find her doing interesting attention seeking things. I leave and she destroys things. She also pretends to be overly hurt from simply things like walking over...

    Hi :)

    I just registered because I have severe anxiety and depression and its all slowly ruining my life. I'm still waiting on counselling (6 months now) and I need to be able to talk to people I don't know about the things going on, and everyone here seems really supportive. My main reasons for...

    I don't feel anything anymore.

    I'm not really sure if this should be here, or elsewhere, but I feel like my issues begin with my depression. Feel free to correct me. Exactly as the title states; I really don't feel much of anything anymore. It's been quite some time since this has happened. I've been this way for well over a...

    Leaving partner / Mortgage / bills

    I'm seriously at the end of my tether. I've unfortunately realised too late that my partner is an addict. We brought a house together 2 years ago. I can't stand to be here or around him, and haven't a clue what to do. I can't sofa surf as I have pets. Can I just move out and expect him to pay...

    Those of you with pets. What do you do with them when you are sectioned? I would like a pet. However, the thought of losing the pet if sectioned is putting me off. Does anyone help with temporary accomodation for them when you are in Hospital. Or is it a case of the rspca takes them in and they...

    The Deeper Spiritual Purpose of Pets

    The Deeper Spiritual Purpose of Pets | yoursoulsplan The process of placing our energy within a body, and in so doing forgetting that we are vast, majestic, Divine Beings made literally from the energy of Unconditional Love, is akin to being struck on the head by a heavy tree branch and...

    night night.

    This world is cruel. There's no help for people like us. Our own partners, husbands, parents, children, don't understand. The government and our employers don't understand. We are seen as weak, a drain on society. For those who have pets. They love us unconditionally. I say good night. Good...

    My cat/s

    Our last cat Wyllow died April 2011 and I really miss her (and my grandparents). With Wyllow sometimes I call her name sometimes I really wish she could come back. On the subject of cats does anyone know of any way of stopping them, kindly, clawing one's clothes to bits?

    So I have a yucky headache and a yucky tummy ache and I'm curled up in my bed in a ball...and my doggie Max comes over and nuzzles right under my arm. I still feel sick but now instead of feeling lonely, I feel warm and fuzzy inside.

    Intrusive thoughts again :(

    Feel like shite and the bitch in me is off again. It's not helping any:cry: I know i'm a failure, a bad mom, wife, friend. Then the bitch keeps sniping at me. I shouldn't be writing this as it's probably just attention seeking and not as bad as i'm making out, i always make mountains from...
