Therapist Tip: 1 in 44 children are now born with #autism A core theme in many #autistic #aspergers #adhd individuals is self hatred or self-loathing, in both the diagnosed & undiagnosed. Many are unaware they are #neurodivergent Many are misdiagnosed or have missed diagnoses

BPD - what is it? A handy guide:

Typically major symptom is emotional dysregulation - which means feeling emotions at 150%-200%. But paradoxically folk with BPD struggle to define the feeling they are feeling..

It's trauma. Chronic trauma (typically childhood) combined with parents either absent or ill equipped to support their child. Sexual abuse is common. This can lead to a child developing a heightened sense of parent's emotions to avoid negative consequences - becoming an "empath".
Diagnosis is typically a long road - the industry avoids these patients and will go so far as to avoid mentioning traits in notes in an effort to shield the patient from said stigma - ultimately unhelpful. BPD folk like to 'woo' healthcare providers as another major symptom is...

I barely slept that night as it was quickly apparent that neighbors and lifelong friends were impacted. A dear friend lost her childrens' babysitter and youth leader, Noel Sparks, she'd hugged just hours earlier.
I recalled the evenings and birthdays I'd spent at Borderline, picturing the interior of the bar and imagining how people would try to escape the carnage quickly.

Let’s talk about #RejectionSensitiveDysphoria or #RSD (a thread). Or better, let’s have @squishdivergent tell you in this excellent article: neuroclastic.com/2021/03/20/liv…
RSD is not a disorder or diagnosis. It is a phenomenon that happens to people with a long history of being invalidated and rejected, people with #complexTrauma, people with certain #mentalHealth conditions, or people with a neurological predisposition. Black background with rainb...
RSD is common among #Neurodivergent folk, especially for #ADHDers, and can be a result of wiring and a history of being rejected. (Alt text added to images) Image description: On a bla...

"Tachchen, ich bin Nora und habe Erfahrungen mit psychischen Erkrankungen, ua. #Depression " - Ein Satz, der mir mittlerweile relativ leicht über die Lippen kommt, für dessen Inhalt ich mich jedoch jahrelang schämte.

Ein kleiner Thread zu meinem 2. Jahrestag im Mutig-Sein

Seit Mai '15 schreibe ich auf meinem Blog nora-fieling.de offen über meine Gedanken, Gefühle & Erfahrungen mit Depression, Angststörung & Borderline(-Anteilen). Dafür schaffte ich mir mit dem Pseudonym "Nora Fieling" online einen Raum, wo ich alles ...

Heute vor 2 Jahren beschloss ich, Gesicht zu zeigen und mehr zu mir und meinen Krisenerfahrungen zu stehen. – Ich feiere heut also mein zweijähriges Mutig-sein 🤩

Ok, let's do this. What are good YouTube channels that you watched (or still watch) because they're fun to watch, but you also ended up learning from them?

Only recommendations from people born this century are allowed

@gauravjoshi2000 @arshkabra @KabraRuhi @ShahAvanti02
Include a link to the YouTube channel, what it's about, and why you liked it. And tag others who could add to the list. Younger kids deserve better recommendations than the ones from the previous century.

@NYTObits writes of John Gunderson: "He was adamant over the years that psychiatric drugs did not help resolve #borderline symptoms." nyti.ms/2E6UmHv This statement is narrowly true. In lectures, he specified circumstances that warrant the use of a range of medications...

He spoke of instances when mood stabilizers, #SSRIs, and even antipsychotics might be of use. He spoke out against the overuse of medication but saw a role for judicious use in clinical management. ucdenver.edu/academics/coll…
