This is mine. Facebook. August, 2017.
It’s been a long battle, where I felt like I’d almost completely lost my sanity, but today I got officially diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (bpd) and bipolar type 2. I feel like a weight has been lifted. Bpd is very stigmatised and misunderstood so let me clear a few things up……
Bpd is a very real often debilitating illness that causes much emotional distress to the sufferer.
Bpd does not make me a bad mother, friend or lover. I am difficult to get along with, a lot of things trigger me, but I care deeply and feel too much. Even if it doesn’t look that way. I just can’t process it all properly or articulate it in effective ways. Quite simply, my brain is impaired.
I am not manipulative, or an attention seeker. I am in great emotional pain and cannot articulate it. It’s been compared to having 3rd degree burns, but emotionally.
I’m not gonna boil ur bunny coz u dumped me. If anything, I’ll make u dump me first, or just push u away when u won’t.
I am who I am, and I am trying to heal. If u don’t like it, u know where the door is
