    What does anxiety feel like?

    I have struggled with anxiety for a lot of years and it's awful. And i think the worst part of it is to try to explain to people what i feels like..I would describe it as drowning inside and out, it so much more awful then people think. How would you describe it?

    Video: Borderline Personality: Loved Ones - You Can't Rescue Them

    YouTube I thought this was a good video, although I strongly disagree with the point of people who leave BPD patients should leave and be OK with it. Listening to her talk helped me realize what my abandonment issue is, and who it was. She's going to pay for it by spending the rest of her...
