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:

Hello world.

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

Hello world! Long time no post, so here goes…

Recently my friend has launched a blog website, which is being hosted from my gallardo server – I hope to do another post specifically around this soon. But he had a great idea.

Everytime he has been updating his website, he has been scanning it with Wayback Machine, so that he can see a difference every time it is updated if he ever wants to look back. Whilst he was doing that, I decided to look at some old sites of mine that I have had over the years, and feel free to search them (I’ll provide a list of the domains that I’ve owned at the bottom of this post)

Anyway… this got me thinking – I must have took a wordpress backup at some point surely! And trust me, I’m not the kind of guy that loses backups!

I managed to find a wordpress export file, dated 21/11/2011. This contained posts dating back to 2009. Wow. So, these posts have been imported today. Mainly for my own nostalgia if I ever want to look back.

I’ve then gone trawling through the web archives and managed to fill in some of the gaps. It turns out I didn’t post a single blog entry in 2016 though… which does surprise me!

Check out the archive here now! 🙂

Here’s a list of domains I’ve owned if you wanna look down memory lane on the Wayback machine

  • www.punksnotdead.org.uk
  • www.iniall95.co.uk
  • www.iniall95.com
  • www.niall.me.uk
  • www.niall.tv
  • www.niall.co
  • www.thepunknetwork.co.uk
  • www.davies.me
  • www.nd.me.uk
  • www.northcareer.co.uk
  • www.burnindzire.co.uk

Peace out,

Niall

After installing WordPress to my website to run a blog on the 28th June, I decided to make the next decision to migrate the whole site.

I had to edit a lot of the page content HTML, mess around with WordPress to get it to run nice, edited a lot of the content as it seemed really out of date and then complete the migration. This involves changes wordpress settings, moving the physical files on the FTP and checking all permalinks work OK.

All done now, and glad as it’s 4:55AM. But well worth it. Have a look around the site, let me know what you think in the comments below. But just to note that ND CMS is no longer operating here… RIP, though the code and database will be kept in backups forever!

Peace and love all,

Niall 🙂

So, as I’ve been told to rest today by the dentist, after having one of my teeth taken out – I decided to use my time adding in any YouTube and Soundcloud uploads that I’ve posted across the years.

You can find them in the archives, most of the dates are rough guesses, apart from the YouTube videos which should be correct as they’re helpful in providing the upload date.

May add some further updates shortly. Will see how things go.

See you around!

Niall 🙂

Hello world,

I decided to start a blog again, after years of not having one/updating one. Was going to code one myself into the custom built CMS that runs www.nd.me.uk, but ended up just installing WordPress. So here it is…

Just a place for general rantings I guess…

Catch ya later!
