HealingFromBPD.org: Coping Effectively When You have Borderline BPD Traits. In this post, Debbie tells us about her 5-part series for PsychCentral, Therapy Soup. I found it very helpful.
Feeling a little sad today. I’m reminded of things that could be better. I’m wishing that things could be different. I miss the way things were at my old house. We used to eat together every day. We never do that anymore. Not even for Christmas dinner. Everybody just grabbed a plate and ran off to their rooms with their respective electronics/screens. I feel like crying about it every day. I wish we could eat together as a family again.
I feel so lonely here every day. Nobody does anything with me anymore. When the kids were little, we used to all play board games together and make crafts. We never do anything together anymore. I miss it so much!
I’m left alone with my thoughts, so I head to the Peer Support Centre to be around people. It helps but I can’t be there 24 hours a day. I wish people would want to do stuff with my here. I’m so tired of being lonely.
My husband and I never do anything together anymore. I miss doing things together so much. I feel so lonely!
At least I have everyone at the Peer Support Centre and here on my blog and Facebook Page to keep me company. Thanks so much for listening!
