Hi all, I have recently become a mental health advocate for a charity. My current diagnosis is BPD, I have also been looking up on C-PTSD as I feel as though I identify and my anxiety has definitely got in the way of me fidning working and making any types of relationships work. I'm 23 now and I am not giving up on trying to find something right for me. I am studying and decided to become a mental health advocate because who understands better than somebody who is actually going through the struggles of it? I love writing and thought I would start a blog, however when I sat and thought about where to start I panicked and wasn't sure where to start, so I'm wondering if you could help me. Do you have any ideas for pieces I could write for it? The whole point is to raise awareness, and support people who are suffering.

I have wanted to start a blog too but every time I start to my anxiety gets the best of me and I don't go forward with it.

I think you should write about what you know.You said you were diagnosed with BPD,so write about that.BPD seems to be a very misunderstood illness and by sharing what you go through,what you experience,how it impacts your life,etc,I think many would appreciate that.Maybe if you get a diagnosis of CPTSD then write about that too.I know many people feel turned off when people write about something they feel they may have but have not been diagnosed with,especially since there's a chance their self diagnosis could be wrong.It might make them feel you really can't relate or understand,that's just my opinion though.

Perhaps you could write an article for the forum's website.

There is so much which could be added to it from personal experiences to providing information which would help our members and the 2 million or so people who visit it each year.

The material on the website has been added to by forum members over the years.
