    Stone cold sober and still feckin' miserable

    I often wonder if drinking too much makes my depression worse, but having been stone cold sober last night and crying my eyes out. I don't think it makes a difference. I know I had a childhood that was better than most people. Although I can't really remember anything significant that was good...

    BPD getting worse?

    Crazy talk here I go :unsure: I feel like my BPD is getting worse. In some ways I think perhaps this is good as perhaps Im just recognising that how I behave is 'wrong' but I cant DO anything about it! Even when I recognise I have overreacted or I have pushed someone away or am in the process of...

    Something I should have done a while ago

    Well I've finally got round to deleting most profiles on the net, Myspace, Facebook, Youtube etc. Hopefully no more 'internet drama' and only frequenting on sites where I wont get hassle from strangers who feel they are validated in questioning other peoples motives for their own gratitude. Also...
