I have received so many comments from people who are truly desperate and feel so alone and I felt compelled to do this video. I want you to know you are NOT alone – I even looked up statistics to see just how huge BPD is! I feel on a bit of a mission now to try and help people as everyone deserves help! Having BPD is not a life sentence and there is a way out. I just wish everyone could be shown this way out! Big hugs to you all xxx
hi guys today I'm going to talk about borderline personality disorder again because one my borderline personality disorder videos are getting loads and loads of use and I never actually realize just how many people out there suffer with it I am being inundated with comments and messages from people are so desperate if you have commented or messaged me and you're one of those people that are really suffering um I just wish I could give you a hug because I have been there and I remember just how lonely I felt I felt so alone I felt like no one understood me and at the time I don't think many people actually did those around me didn't really they didn't understand and there is a real stigma attached with mental health and I just wanted to do this video really to say like you're not alone like I've been looking up statistics and I'm going to read you so much I've got them on my phone now right borderline personality disorder affects five point nine percent of adults this is in America at some time in their life that's 14 million Americans that's just America 14 million right BPD effects fifty percent peep more people than Alzheimer's disease and nearly as many as schizophrenia and bipolar combined BPD effects twenty percent of patients admitted to psychiatric hospitals and BPD effects ten percent of people in outpatient mental health treatment not just that on another website i found forty percent of people that have borderline personality disorder have previously been misdiagnosed where they've been told they might have depressive disorder or bipolar disorder so yeah they've been misdiagnosed so that's like that is a few statistics it just shows how huge this illness is how many millions of people suffer with it so if your likes at home and you're feeling just how I felt so alone like no one gets you nothing's ever going to get better just no doubt millions of other people out there feeling exactly like you are and exactly like I did now as you know from my other videos unlucky I don't feel like that anymore I don't feel alone anymore and you have to have faith that you will not always feel like this it's not a life sentence it doesn't mean you are going to spend the rest of your life like this and things can and will get better I don't know what else to say to you I just wish I could give you a big hug because because I just remember that feeling and just how bad it felt and I wish back then that I had had someone come and just hug me tight tight tight and say Sherina it's not always going to be like this you're going to have an amazing life you're gonna be really happy and one day you're going to look back on it all like it was some bad nightmare um and not just that you're going to come out the other side a stronger person because I'm definitely stronger than I ever was ever and there are literally millions and the statistics we have their people have been diagnosed there are still millions out there that might not even been diagnosed yet that are suffering with this your comments to me making me like want to stand up and say right we got do something about this that people shouldn't have to suffer like this it's not fair I'm getting comments from young people like teenagers that suffering some of their families don't believe them some their families don't even get on with them they might be living alone they're teenagers they're still babies like in my eyes I know when I was a teenager I thought I was grown up but looking back now I was just a child there are just so many people out there and it's really like open my eyes because I know this is just the tip of the iceberg and I'm thinking well shreena you've got to do something about this now I know I can't save the world i wish i could but um yes like I want to make it my mission I wanna highlight just how many people are out there and they're suffering not just that I had a phone call the other day from someone who's so desperate and they're saying I want to kill myself and they have told their mental health team this and no one is doing anything no one is listening to them and I remember there were times like that i have like that well I was desperate and when you're desperate the last thing you want to do is have to keep phoning say is anyone going to call me like is anyone gonna call me back like you just be like fuck you take me seriously I want to die and it's so sad that there are people out there that are suffering and they're not being listened to they're not getting the help that they need light in this country I've talked about dbt i am a huge fan of dbt i believe it was like life-changing and I did it but it's not a hue in the United Kingdom you it's not that easy just to get on a course not everyone does it not everywhere does there but we are lucky we have the NHS which is amazing because it means at least we could get into the system we don't have to pay it won't cost us a fortune we can get treated I'm getting messages from people in some countries where like the medical bills are just so expensive they're desperate for help and they can't afford to get help and it just seems so unfair I mean I wish I could contact Marsha Linehan I think I'm she is the lady that developed DBT and I would like her to train me properly I can tell you DBT skills from what I've learned but i'm not actually qualified in it and i'd like to like do huge conventions where loads and loads like hundreds of people with borderline could come and learn these skills all in one place all together like that would be like a dream to help so many people and do them all over the world because there's so many places that don't do it and people can't access help i was thinking to myself right how am I going to do is contact marshal in ham and I can see she hasn't been on Twitter for ages and so that's given me something to think about i think i'm going to contact oprah and say look there are people that are so desperate give us a platform and give us a hold hands we can get the word out there because people can be helped borderline personality disorder doesn't mean you have to live like that in that horrid hold feeling forever and ever there is a way out but people need to be shown that way and they need to be helped and as you can probably tell from my voice I'm really passionate about this because I came out the other side and now I know there's a way out back then when I was really suffering I didn't think there was a way out and that's why I'm kind of using my voice now and I'm doing these videos because I want to give people hope and let them know there is a way out you will not always feel like this if I could hug you I would hug you I just want to get the word out there I just want to help people and because no one deserves to feel like that and everyone deserves a chance of getting help not just because where you live or how much money you have everyone deserves help and teenagers need to be listened to people like they need to be teaching these skills in schools I think if dvb-t was taught in schools to everyone it's like these life skills there I think there'd be a lot less teenagers with mental health problems had they got these skills behind them and but yeah anyway I suppose I'll leave that there but I am sending you all loads and loads and loads love as always thank you so much for your comments thank you for watching my videos yeah I love you all and you were not alone I promise you you're not alone see you guys bye
