what are the things that motivate you to keep goin with therapy?
I am moving next Sunday. I only have my boyfriend to help me, which I am super grateful for, it just sucks that my family won’t help me. I mean I get why my grandparents can’t, they just can’t do what they used to, but my mom can, and she’s choosing not to. It also sucks that I’ll still be alone, it’s too soon to move in with my boyfriend and I’ll be even a little farther from him, but closer to work.
Hey guys - I’m new here & look forward to getting to know you all🥳
What’s the hardest part of BPD for you? Mine is every so often, the only way I can describe it, is forgetting who I am. I’ve have worked so hard to get to where I am today! But, sometimes I can wake and it feels as though, I’ve made no progress. I like to listen to motivation speeches sometimes. Just because, it can snap me out of it and reinforce everything I already know. Today is a good day and next time I feel a certain way, I will come back here to read my last two posts. 💡🌈🥰
I hate having to do everything alone. It sucks so much.
Anyone else struggle with severe social anxiety and want to help eachother improve? Yeah me neither…
I’m out of the loop. What is PMDD?
How do you get over knowing your spouse can do better than you? I hate it! I’m so insecure because there are so many women that look better than me and in the summer it sucks because there are so many gorgeous women with shorts on and I am fat and have no butt and don’t wear shorts because I’m not attractive. 😩 I hate it so much.
How are you doing?
Hello, I’m struggling with the whole bpd situation. I feel alone, lost and sometimes I crack from the constant insults, and the need to repeat myself. It’s my sibling, she’s bpd, not being treated and I have no one to talk to about this. I want to set proper boundaries with her. Thank you 💜
Staying positive does not mean everything will turn out okay. Rather, it means you will be okay no matter how things turn out.
If you're always trying to be normal, you'll never know how amazing you can be!💜🌈🤗
TW: (In this paragraph I have abbreviated trigger words. I also highly recommend you don’t try this coping skill if water is a trigger for you.) Coping skill for anxiety: Have you ever heard of an ice dive? You may have seen videos of people diving in icy water but this is not that kind of activity! Ice dives involve submerging the face in icy cold water for **30 seconds or less .. or you could dunk your face in and out quickly.** This sensation triggers the “dive reflex. The dive reflex is an evolutionary protective mechanism that occurs in mammals in response to water submersion. The body responds by lowering the heart rate and increasing blood flow to the heart and brain. This reflex shifts physical, neurological and chemical body functions, the body literally does this as a way of preserving life. The dive reflex pauses or slows down nonessential functions since emotions aren’t absolutely vital to survive short term, this coping skill will calm a person down. Try this coping skill! It can be incredibly helpful for intense emotions that trigger panic and anxiety attacks, intrusive thoughts, SH urges, SI and more.
Is someone able to talk? I’m just really struggling with SH urges and (trigger warning) have done it a few times today. Just things with my father are incredibly awful and I can’t stand being alive any longer. Thank you so much whoever reaches out. If you didn’t see this on Monday July 4th then there’s no point in responding.
My boyfriend made a joke about one of my big insecurities and then I said something about how he likes that specific thing that I don’t hav s, and then he said he liked another part of me. So he admitted he doesn’t like that part of me without saying it. I’m so upset and insecure now, my insecurities are in full force. How can he truly love me if I don’t have what he really likes? Is he settling? Ugh. I hate this. 😩
Hi all, wanted to let you know that there’s a new resource in the U.S. Just like 911 for criminal matters.. dialing 988 will be known as the national suicide hotline. When will it be accessible? On Saturday 7/16 the “988” number will be going live. This is the suicide hotline. 💜📞
Howdy! I’m new to this community. Nice to meet you all 😎
Why Is it that night time is so hard to get my ex of my mind I miss her so much
I can’t trust myself. I can’t trust my thoughts. There’s no truth in my life or stillness I can find at the moment and when I do rely on something that feels true it falls through. I feel like somebody who’s falling in mid air constantly. I don’t know what to think I don’t know what to feel because I can’t trust my own judgment when things are constantly changing in my mind. I don’t have a supportive, validating, or stable environment. I’m just so stressed out.
