  1. I'm glad I could help. You can always take better care of others if you always take care of you as well.
  2. This is so commonly said but just take it a day at a time with how you cope. Its okay if you go from feeling strong to feeling weak. I hope that you find the strength to keep checking on you (taking a time out to yourself, talking to someone on the outside of the situation , making sure your practicing self care). Take care
  3. Yes! I just pray I don't get into mania again. it sent me to the hospital. I try not to drink too much coffee, get plenty of sleep, and pay attention to my thoughts(impulses, listening to voices of any kind is a nono). Instincts are tricky with me because ive been been diagnosed with sad and what seems to be instinct can be... paranoia. I don't know. I just try to be conscious. Thank you for your input. I thought I was the only one that stopped my meds. Haven't told my family. I don't want to scare me Aunt.
  4. I have been diagnosed with bpd. I'm glad that the stigma is fading. Not to belittle your story. Your an inspiration, hope to see you posting more soon. I want to go to a therapist, but I don't want to confess that I've stopped taking meds. Not to say anything is wrong with taking to them. So I write a lot. And choose a few people to spill all my beans to, God primarily. Anyway, take care.
  5. Have you ever thought about writing your feelings in a journal? It has helped alot when I was crying
  6. I'm glad that you came back. I hope that words help you in the future
  7. Reading is good but i believe writing out your thoughts is very important. It does not have to be in order, it dosen't have to "make sense"... just speak from the heart
  8. i agree with the above answer. I also think that it would be good to seek counseling and find another lawyer if you can.

    Been A Bit

    I've done it too. But I look at it as learning experience. Don't beat yourself up about it.

    I Can't

    You don't actually have to take a break. But you can ask for "me time". It would good to tell him the reason in detail. And I definitely think that it would be good to mention the depression.
  11. Do you write in a journal? It would be good to start, and read what you wrote to your therapist. I think its good to be on a site like this because you can get help while helping others.
  12. You will be okay. The marraige was never meant to work because it was built on violation and disrespect. What I mean is... the relationship created an enviroment for you to be violated and disrespected. He violated and disrespected your enviroment. It wasn't meant to work. It is not good to be in a marraige where a person does not respect you. The marraige was created through an act of manipulation. I'm so glad you found someone that respects you! (I hope the same for me oneday! Your okay already. Because you moved on. Deep wounds heal slow. But they still heal Take it one day at a time. I'm

    That's okay. But maybe you should print out the posts that really help you get through.... keep those stashed. And once you do that.... kinda try sites that are still active. I did that once and the post still gives me so much strength.
