Grief Quote

I just found this quote on Facebook that spoke to me.  It’s from the Page “From HELL to WELL”

“I closed my eyes and abandoned myself to my grief. It felt better, somehow, to be helpless. I didn’t feel ashamed.”
~ S.J. Watson

I don’t feel ashamed of my grief.  What I do feel is that I can’t properly grieve because my parents and sister are ashamed of the way my brother died.  I know I keep bringing this up but I feel like this is the only way I can process it.  Also, I figure you guys would like to know what’s going on in my life, and in my head.  If not, please let me know.  I don’t know if there’s anyone out there with the same type of problem and maybe I’m helping them?  Or maybe not.  But maybe it can’t hurt to let it out and it might even help.

I found a great online grief support group.  I’m not sure what to share there.  I might share this.  I’m not sure yet.  Still trying to get a feel for the group.  I’ve been made to feel very welcome there.  And here in the blogging world as well.

Thanks to everyone who’s there for me in my journey of recovery from BPD, and in my grief.  It is much appreciated.  Till next time,

— Joyce.

P.S.  Here is a link to the post containing that quote:




The other day I reached 7,500 Likes on my Facebook Page!  Yay!

BPD Proud Pics!

I saw some people posting pics on Facebook saying that they had BPD and were not ashamed.  I thought I’d do it on my own Page and invited others to post their pics or message them to me to do for them.  I was overwhelmed by the number of pictures I received in my Inbox and posted to the Page.  I am so glad that people are coming forward to help eliminate the stigma of BPD!  We even had some male contributors!  They are all so brave!  If you would like to check it out, I’ve created an album of the pics that were sent to my Inbox.  You can check it out here:

BPD Proud

I will be updating and adding to this album in the future.

Check out Google Plus and My Other Links!

Well, all of my posts are automatically shared to Google Plus, privately.  Then I have to go back and share them publicly manually.  Oh well.  I might not share every single post publicly.  I might just share the best ones there.  If you want to read all of my posts, you’ll have to read them here or on my other links, which are:  Facebook, twitter and tumblr.  I’m also on Pinterest and YouTube.  Check out my weekly newspaper here.  And, if you’d like to check out some merchandise by Make BPD Stigma-Free, you can check out my Zazzle store here.  I’ve had my store for about two years now, and I think I have yet to sell one item.  I’m wondering if I should close it down.  I’ve got myself a few items from there.  I have to advertise my blog and other links, you know!

Check out my links and let me know what you think.  (I’m a poet, and didn’t know it!)  😉

Facebook Challenges

Yesterday, I was messaged by a couple of Facebook friends.  They were both having a very difficult time.  I provided some support and felt good doing it.  The only reason I want more Facebook Likes is because I want to spread awareness of Borderline Personality Disorder and help eliminate stigma.  It’s so unknown, and what people think they know about it is so far from the truth.

There are many sites out there providing support for the “victims” of us Borderline Monsters, but not as many for us Borderlines.  I’d love to change that.  We need to support each other.  There are some out there if you know where to look.  If you check my Facebook Page, you’ll see many Pages I’ve shared.  You can also look under other Pages I’ve “Liked”.

To those who messaged me yesterday, if you are reading this, I hope you are having a much better day than yesterday.  I am always there if you just need to vent, I can listen.  I’m a great listener.  Huge hugs to anyone needing them today.  Have a great day,

– Joyce.

Running Two New Groups In One Week!

Friday is the first day running my new BPD Group.  I’ll have a couple of new people in the group.  Plus I’ll be running my first Facebook Group meeting on Sunday.  I’m so nervous!  Two people responded that they were coming and one “maybe.”  What if nobody shows up?  What if lots of people show up?  Will I sound stupid, like I have no idea what I’m talking about?

I hope it goes well.  It would be so good to meet others with BPD.  I’ve hardly met anyone else with it, except at my DBT program, but that was different because that’s what we were all there for.  This will be meeting “in real life”  i.e.  outside of DBT Group.  It’s so nice to meet others who understand you, who know what it’s feels like to have Borderline Personality Disorder.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

Wish me luck,

Humour and BPD

I share lots of mental health humour – funny pics, quotes, etc., on my FaceBook page for Make BPD Stigma-Free.  Some people might think that it’s making fun of mental illness, but it’s not to me.  I can only speak for myself.  When you feel down, you feel it ten times worse than other people.  Instead of feeling bad for a few mins, we can feel bad for hours, days, weeks.  You have to laugh or else you’d cry.

What do you think?  Feel free to comment.
