Get Me Out of Here - By, Rachel Reiland

This is by far my favorite book about BPD. Yea, “I hate you, Don’t leave me” is a great book, but this…nothing could ever possibly get you any more inside the mind of a borderline than this book.

When I read this book I feel like I’m reading about myself. There is so much about it that I relate to, its scary. She takes you along with her, through her…

U know how in winter it gets so cold and u think u will never be hot again and in summer it gets so hot u think u will never be cold again I think that is how it is with ur feelings like when u r sad u think u will never be happy and when u r happy u think u will never be sad. But u will be hot again and u will be cold again and u will be sad again but most of all u will be happy again

So I’m not sure if I’ll ever use this or not. I should, but I often have plans to do specific things and when shit hits the fan, everything goes out the window. Not necessarily because I choose not to do them, but usually because I’m so dysregulated that I forget I have things in place to help me. That, or I attempt those things and it doesn’t work as…

Love Doesn’t Cure Mental Illness

Love Doesn’t Cure Mental Illness

Originally posted on Infinite Sadness… or hope?:

This week, not surprisingly, there has been a whole lot of talk on our screens about mental illness and suicide.  Having those subjects ‘out there‘ is a good thing, but I can’t deny that unwise words and ill-formed arguments have not helped anyone, most especially those personally affected by the tragic death of Robin Williams, and also…

Coping with Change

They say that Borderlines have trouble coping with change.  I’ve noticed that, if I have a little bit of time to prepare myself for it, it isn’t too bad.  But if I don’t, it hits me like a ton of bricks and I have to really practice using my DBT skills.  Is anyone else like this?  Can you cope with change as long as you have a little bit of warning?  Or is it hard no matter what?

Do you love me?

Originally posted on Beautifully Borderline:

How can you tell that someone loves you? What does it feel like? I know what it feels like to feel love for someone else, but I’m not sure I am skilled at feeling it from others toward me. People say it. People do nice things sometimes (some people), but I’m not certain that feeling “loved” is something I’ve ever really been able to experience other…
