I believe BPD is partly genetic and partly due to our upbringing. I was asked if I was worried that I will pass it on to my kids.
We can suffer with black and white thinking and push our inlaws away – how can we cope with this especially if they don’t know we have BPD.
How do you go about getting help for BPD if you think you may have it but don’t yet have a diagnosis?
The kids are back at school and I’m happy I can get back in to a routine!
Sorry the sound isn’t great in this video – I mustn’t have connected the mic properly. Throughout nearly all of my relationships I would test my partners to see if they loved me – a lot of the time they weren’t even aware that I did these tests!
I hope you all have a lovely Easter and bank holiday xxx
Why would we suffer with hypochondria? Could it be because we are crying out for attention?
Nobody likes to admit that we can do these things – but unfortunately I have done all of them. I do not believe it makes us bad people though – we act in desperation.
Believe it or not BPD has some positives! The deep love we feel is one of them. I did not want to lose those feel-good feelings when I came in to recovery.
Some people just do not believe in Mental Health unfortunately and this video discusses your options if one of those people include a family member.
I was one of the worlds best at making excuses not to go out. This can become very isolating though and unhealthy.
I often here from men saying their bpd wife/girlfriend has cheated on them and they don’t know what to do.
