Interesting take on How to deal with BPD. I found some of it accurate and helpful. What do you think?
Borderline Personality Disorder, BPD, is a serious and debilitating mental health disorder that hugely impacts how you think and feel about yourself and those around you and causes many problems which affect how you function in everyday life. People with BPD often see a pattern of unstable relationships, extreme erratic emotions and impulsiveness.
BPD is a real illness. It’s far from just a phase of feeling down in the dumps. It’s scary, suffocating, unbearable. We have no control of the illness, although we can receive help to try, however, due to the chemicals in our brains, it’s a very hard thing to do. Although BPD is less known (which is in part why I am writing this blog), it is just as real as depression, and it’s even as real as physical illness such as Asthma or Cancer.

I have made a few changes to my blog. On the right-hand side are some widgets. At the top, you’ll notice a video called “The Quiet Borderline: The Forgotten Ones”. I made it a few years ago. I hope you enjoy it. I’ve also added Archives and a stats counter, telling me how many hits I have to this site. I’ve wanted to add these things for a long time, but just now figured out how to do it.
I’m especially interested in what people think of my video. Many of you have seen it before, but it may be new to some of you. I hope that you find it informative and may even want to show it to your friends, family and others to help explain Borderline Personality Disorder to them. Let me know if you do, if you like, and how it went. I hope that if is helpful.
Till next time,
On Monday, my daughter turned 20 years old. My parents and I took her to do some grocery shopping. She picked up a cake mix and some icing. I guess she was going to bake herself a birthday cake.
I visited my parents and then we went to visit my sister and her new hubby. I didn’t get home until 10:00 pm. That’s late for me! I had a lot of fun visiting. I think it was good for all of us.
We had a big thunderstorm last night that put the power out for a few hours. Now our dryer isn’t working. I had just put a load of clothes in it too! Now, I’ll have to hang them up. We don’t even have a clothesline put up. We may have to go to the laundromat to dry them.
The foster parents are away on vacation, so my daughter hasn’t seen her sons for a while now. I’m not sure when they’re coming back. I’d love to have a visit with my grandkids. I haven’t seen her new baby since he was two weeks old. He’s about two months old now.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. Before you know it, it’ll be Fall again. All the kids will be back at school. My son will be doing tutoring again. He’s not eating right and is so skinny. I worry about him so much. The medication he’s on doesn’t seem to be doing much for him. He was on half a pill a day, now it’s a whole pill. I think he must need a different medication. He definitely needs to see a counsellor but we can’t force him to go. Kids!
Till next time,
Congratulations! It’s Just Borderline Personality Disorder! | Medical Division – Articles on medical subjects every half hour!
Some very good advice in this article. One of my favourite books for Non-BPDs to read is “Loving Someone with Borderline Personality Disorder” by Shari Y. Manning. It’s very validating and compassionate towards those of us with BPD. Also, anything by Debbie Corso.
