This is my story on Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I created this blog as a safe place to talk about anything and everything.Somewhere to post my poetry, my thoughts, feelings, symptoms and struggles.
I started this site because I wanted to feel related to. When I was first diagnosed I wished I would stumble across a blog, a book, really anything that made me feel less like a monster and more like a person. I wanted to find safety in numbers. It was the first time in my life where I thought blending in would benefit me- I just wanted to know there were more people like me. People whose minds never quieted, people who felt deeply or the absence of feeling completely. I wanted someone to talk about the ugly so I could forgive myself for my thoughts and actions and accept that this disorder was just that. But I din’t find much out there. Thus began the creation of Borderline: A Life Story.
I hope you can come to my site and feel some sort of relief, “great, I’m not crazy! There are more people out there like me!” Well, you are still crazy but you are not alone. Take a gander, read over some of my poems and entries, I would appreciate it!
