Misery doesn’t just love company, sometimes it needs company. Knowing that you’re not alone in the often alienating thoughts and feelings that accompany Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) can be a great relief.
Here are a few blogs written by a variety of people, each on a personal journey or recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder. A glimpse into their experiences might help you as you navigate your own journey.
My Raw Recovery
Reading this blog feels like you’re getting a shot of positivity and hope. Don’t be fooled, the blogger — recent college graduate Alex — does not hold back when writing about the horror of the depression and anxiety she has dealt with in her struggle to beat Borderline Personality Disorder and her co-occurring eating disorder, but there is always a message of hope and possibility in her writing.
You’ve heard of turning lemons into lemonade. This blog illustrates how someone with Borderline Personality Disorder has taken her struggles, owned them, and run with them. Kayla Kavanaugh, described as a “singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and mental health ambassador,” has used music to express herself and help deal with her struggles with Borderline Personality Disorder. A big part of Kayla’s work deals with fighting the stigma around BPD and other mental health disorders.
