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.

Another Rant on BPD and Stigma


So many books, articles and blogs are very damaging to Borderlines.  They have tips on things like how to “train your Borderline.”  I’m not kidding!  Here is a passage from one such book:

One analogy I have used around this issue is:  “My H is really a good, law-abiding person.  It’s just that every once in a while he robs a bank.  But really, deep down inside, he is a good, law-abiding person.”

So, we’re all bank-robbers?  Seriously? Not only that, apparently we’re all sociopaths/psychopaths too.  Just check out these articles:

I’d love to know what your thoughts are on this.  Please comment below:

BPD and Feeling “Different”


I feel so different from other people.  Not just a little different, like some people.  Different as in “I’m the last of my species that’s about to die out” different.  I feel so absolutely, positively ALONE.  Alone in the universe.  Like on Star Trek: The Next Generation, when Capt. Picard discovered that “time capsule” from a world that had died out.  That alone.

No one understands.  To feel so alone and misunderstood is HELL!

But then you hear rumours about others like you, and you begin your quest to find them.  You HAVE TO find them.  You are compelled to find them.  You search everywhere and, just as you’re about to give up hope, YOU FIND THEM!

They begin to describe their lives and it sounds exactly the same as what you’ve been going through.  For the first time in your life, SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS!  You feel tears of happiness streaming down your cheeks for the first time ever.

 

YOU ARE NO LONGER ALONE!
