Something I’ve wanted to do for a while is to create some kind of blog or resource around Borderline Personality Disorder. I have been diagnosed with BPD for around 2 years now and something I have noticed is that there is a lack of awareness around it, and also mental health in general – and there’s a lot of stigma attached to conditions.
I bought a domain in December last year, mybpdblog.co.uk – with the intention of starting it up as it’s own website – since I have made the decision to redirect that to a category on this site where I will be putting in posts about the condition, the treatment and also general resources to access information about BPD for people who have the condition, or people who are close to others that do have.
This is something that is also hugely helpful to me, and I feel will aid in my own ongoing recovery.
Here is the original post from myBPDblog.co.uk:
So, creating this blog is a big step for me in my recovery. I feel that if that in some way I could help someone else, or even help myself in the future, then I will achieve something.
Even just spreading awareness of what this condition is, considering that 1 in 5 people in the world could be diagnosed with traits of this condition, is a big thing for me.
I myself, have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder/Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder for over 2 years now. I have also, along the way, met a few others with this condition – who have very different symptoms. That’s the thing with BPD, it’s a varied and wonderful thing. It can present itself in different ways with different people, meaning that 2 people with this condition may not have the same symptoms.
With this website, I will share my own experiences, ensuring that anyone mentioned stays anonymous – and i also would like to create a hub of resources, as there are a lot of places on the internet with useful information regarding BPD, a lot of support groups – both for BPD and mental health in general, and a few numbers you can call if you’re in crisis.
Until next time,
Peace & Love to you all
Thank you for your time,
