Hello folks! I noticed today, that I really give an sort of definition to what Borderline Personality is, and my thoughts on the matter. Obviously this is what my blog is centered around. Oh, and I have my own domain, that will be coming very soon! 😀
I am just waiting for my friend to migrate some things on his server, then all I have to do is import everything over. I am hoping there is absolutely no downtime, nor that things get lost in the shuffle. Thank my A.D.D for this side track in thought, by the way, aha.
“People with borderline personality disorder may experience mood swings and display uncertainty about how they see themselves and their role in the world. As a result, their interests and values can change quickly.
People with borderline personality disorder also tend to view things in extremes, such as all good or all bad. Their opinions of other people can also change quickly. An individual who is seen as a friend one day may be considered an enemy or traitor the next. These shifting feelings can lead to intense and unstable relationships. “
There are also certain traits that also go along with this definition too, which include, and not limited to:
• Abandonment issues
• With the fear of abandonment, we will push always the ones that we love, which creates unstable relationships and friendships.
• Unstable image of the self.
• Splitting (seeing somebody as a friend one day then an enemy the next.
• Impulsive and often dangerous behaviors, such as spending sprees, unsafe sex, substance abuse, reckless driving, and binge eating.
• Self harm behaviors.
• Suicidal ideations and threats of suicide. Please do not take these lightly!!
• Constant mood swings that can last hours to days. They can range from sadness, emptiness, anger, disassociation.
• Difficultly trusting anybody!
I plan to make another entry about my experiences with having BPD, as I do not want to have a single post ramble on and on, and get the readers lost in the mix. I wanted to provide some details about what this disorder can entail.
If you think you have some of the symptoms of BPD, please get a proper evaluation by a professional. I am only here to spread some knowledge and personal experience with the disorders that I have. If you know anybody that is suicidal or thinking about suicide, please use these resources!
