it's BPD awareness month. if you or a loved one is diagnosed with this, please do the research, understand it, and educate yourself.
some fun facts:
- BPD is characterized by polarized thinking; all or nothing, good or bad, black or white, etc.
- BPD looks like: paranoid ideation, fear of abandonment, identity confusion, dissociation of reality, chronic feelings of emptiness, pattern of intense and unstable relationships, impulsive self-destructive behaviour, self harm, affective instability (few hours or few days)
suicidal behaviours, auditory verbal hallucinations, trouble creating and enforcing boundaries
- BPD ALSO looks like: infectious excitement, being really compassionate, a heck of a lot of love, a big appreciation for life's beauty, emotional intuition, heightened emotional empathy, immense passion, loyalty, and determination, heightened creativity, great curiosity.
- BPD does not mean being irrationally over emotional. it also does not mean manipulative.
- people with BPD are not "emotional hypochondriacs" (attention-seekers)
my friend asia has a website dedicated to blog posts about mental health, and BPD. i find it very helpful to read, especially with a cup of coffee in hand and light music in the background.
may is BPD awareness month and i am aware of my BPD.

much love
