Who are you?

Hey, I’m Terri. Today I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Thought I’d make a blog about it. I’m a 26 year old artist who lives in North Wales, UK. I’m full of piercings and a few tattoos (though I want more). I love my cat, Loona. So that’s the basics.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a personality disorder that defined as, emotional instability, disturbed patterns of thinking or perception, impulsive behavior, and intense but unstable relationships.

I have a few symptoms that go along with this:

Fear of abandonment, unstable relationships (not just romantic), unstable self-image, impulsive and self destructive behavior, self-harm, extreme emotional mood swings, feelings of emptiness, explosive anger, an feeling out of touch with reality.

I feel relieved, I finally know what’s “wrong” with me. I can finally after years of not knowing why I am the way I am, get the right help and treatment. At the same time I’m scared. BPD comes with a lot of bad press, so many people think people who have bpd are “crazy” and “psycho”. I’m not, I’m just a girl trying to do the best she can with the skills she has. I have no control over it, it’s not my fault. I’ve been given information on bpd, and what to do next. I’m getting my meds sorted, and I’m on a waiting list for help with a psychologist. I’m gonna put it all down here, how I feel, what’s happening, so wish me luck.

  1. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the web will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness
    and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a very good job
    with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!

  3. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do
    with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos
