Should we tell our kids about our mental health and if so how do we do it?
How do we stop ourselves taking our anger out on our kids?
I always needed to be liked – I couldn’t bare the thought of someone not liking me – and I would go to extreme measures to get them to like me!
I seriously thought I was like Peter Pan. I just did not feel like I had grown up at all. I felt like a lost child stuck in an adults body.
There were times when I would try to develop my own way of recovery by fixing on things. When I did this I would distance myself from my loved ones and be quite cold and cut off from them.
When I broke up with someone I could be devestated one minute only to have completely moved on the next. Why do we do this?
I started dissasociating at a young age and the memory loss soon followed – both short term and long term memory loss.
My Family think I am a completely different person to who I used to be. But it can be hard on families to believe we truly have changed.

Sorry to do another porn video guys! In this video I discuss how porn can be really destructive to relationships.

A routine is so helpful in recovery and can make life easier for us. But how do we do it?
Here I discuss some of the issues we have with sex – intimacy, promiscuity, low self esteem etc. We can also use porn as a way of getting our needs met without the worry of intimacy!
I can remember the feeling of betrayal and deep hurt I felt when I discovered an ex watched porn.
I always felt different and could be in a room full of people and still feel lonely.
I spent so many years feeling guilt and shame and feeling like I deserved love from nobody! Luckily I don’t feel like that today!
I could be so cold to the people whom I was supposed to love the most.
I was like a chameleon for years – constantly trying to adapt to be like others around me – to the point I didn’t even know who I was or what I liked.
I used to have real issues around sex which I explain in this video.
What if someone you love who you either think has BPD or has been diagnosed refuses to get any help? What if this person is a parent? What are your options?
Where am I from? What tattoos do I have? How did I take care of my kids when I was really low?
What if you have some of the BPD traits but not enough to get an actual diagnosis? Would DBT help?
How does the ‘monthly moods’ effect you differently if you have borderline personality disorder?
The kids had their half term hols, I went to Ireland for my brother’s wedding, I no longer have a house to move in to and I cried for the first time this pregnancy!
