30 Days Of Brave – Day 2

day-2.jpg

As today’s ‘Act Of Brave’ requires a public statement of commitment, I am going to start this post with some selfless promotion. There’s nothing more public than social media right now and as I am all over it, I have put together a handy list of all my profiles that you can FIND HERE. Please come on over and find me on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook as I will totally appreciate it and maybe even flash you a smile.

And now that’s out-of-the-way, let’s get to the subject at hand huh? Continue reading →

30 Days Of Brave – Day 1*

What Is This All About

So today is all about new-found inspiration and let’s not lie here, right now I couldn’t feel further from it. I am not sure how I feel.Nervous maybe? A little hopeful? Truth is, I spent a few moments earlier trying to think about the last time I was truly inspired and I all could come up with were the false bursts of focus I describe here. That’s the trouble with us borderlines though isn’t it, the moment often seems so overwhelming that none of it feels quite real and even if we do start something.. it doesn’t last very long.

Finding Focus (An Update Of Sorts)

seuss

Oh the mind of someone with borderline personality disorder, it never really stops does it? A wiser person than me once described my way of thinking as ‘having a lot of internet tabs open at once’ and you know what, it’s about right. I start things all the time and never quite finish them because there is quite simply, a thousand ideas crammed inside my head. I flick from one thing to the next and nothing has any order or place in reality because although I can spend hours planning wonderful things, they never seem to really go anywhere. I have all the ability to analyse because I spend enough time doing it to other people but I when my mood is low I lack motivation, drive and want to finish anything.

Does Any Of This Sound Familiar? Continue reading →

It’s Been A While

sorry

 

Woah! It’s been ages!

I mentioned in my last post that I was undergoing a medication change and that much is true. I will also tell you that I have felt every long second of that medication change and in fact, I ended up putting my mind and body through three big changes in the end. It was horrific and to be fair, I just want to forget it. In reality, I am going to talk more openly about my experiences here very soon aswell as post a full update and discuss a some new blog doings that will hopefully bring me back here with a bump!

It’s all very exciting.

What needs to be said now though is I am sorry, I ran away and I was dealing with stuff but honestly, It is ok to take some time for yourself. I needed to and I did. I am back now and I am well so if you are still about and reading then please continue.

Please wave high and proud so I can see you!

I will be back next week to start some daily blogging*

*Yes, you heard me right.

There is much debate about the use of medication for BPD which I am not prepared to enter into right now. That’s not to say I won’t at some point because I will. I will also no doubt write posts about what medication has (and hasn’t) done for me in terms of body and mind over the years. Right now though, I want to focus on something I am going through and not only that, something I am sure many medication taking sufferers will also have to go through.

The joyous act of changing to and starting a new med. Continue reading →
