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.
