Hi everyone im Gem-Louise.I have EUPD which stands for Emotionally unstable personality disorder I also selfharm and have suicidal tendencies. I am currently under a CMHT and have also been in the psych ward a few times.I find it hard to talk to people about how I feel as I cant find the right words to explain and I fear I am going to be judged or told I am stupid.I am not a confident person and have really low self asteem.I also have eating issues and make myself purge.I have been sexually assaulted in the past, lost the only person I felt cared about me and it just feels like life is constantly passing me things I cant cope with..I would like to get to know people so feel free to message me anytime.

Gem-Louise. x

Sorry to hear that you have been through that Gem-louise, you will find no judgement here atleast not from me, here you just vent what you want and ill listen, if i have the spare energy for it and is online, there are also plenty of other people here that can help and listen, and probably the lot that has some experience with your issues, i too self harm in a way got that confirmed by the psychiatrist i just do it untraditionally but it is indeed self harm, it can be triggered by painful emotions and memories maybe that is the same for you.

I cant relate to your eating issues i dont know the specifics and i never really struggled with it, food was just always something that served a purpose in my case, and not something to be enjoyed in a way.

Anyway i wont tell you my real name, but friends called me annew.

Nice to meet you, and welcome.

:welcome: to the forum.

Just wondering how you came up with the name. Of course you don't have to answer :)

It's just that is what my Mum calls me.
