Many of us have both a personality disorder AND a job to deal with.  Maybe some of us have BPD and a boss from the underworld.  Work can be difficult when you struggle with a brain illness.  In a lot of cases, BPD completely strips...

Good evening from the States, Readers.  I appreciate SO MUCH the positive feedback I received from Part 1 of this discourse on people who are developmentally disabled.  It is a subject that is so dear to my heart, as is general mental...

I still haven't recovered from this depression I am trapped in.  It takes all my energy just to make it to my computer, to get dressed, to wake up.  I don't have words to describe this feeling and so I'm reaching out to you,...

Many of us have a long history of doctors' visits and therapists.  I have so many I can't remember all their names anymore!  This is no coincidence; BPD is known for its difficult relationships and trust issues.  There...

I tend to write when I'm feeling well and my advice and statements are most definitely made from the healthy place in my brain.  Well today I decided to write in the midst of my depression, stuck in the mud, sinking into sickness.  ...

Much of the focus in many therapies, behavioral and otherwise, is on retraining the brain.  It seems like a simple concept but it takes hard work and dedication.  My therapist has our group take time EVERY SINGLE HOUR to work...

First of all, let me just say that I LOVE borderline people.  I know people don't like to be labeled, and that is not my intent.  I do want to point out that people who suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder have a treasure...
