    Heya Aidan,

    I totally agree with you. Pets are soo lovely to have around when you're feeling low. While I adore dogs, I have only ever had cats, so i'm a little more familiar with them. I love the sounds of their purr and feeling their warmth against me. It's super therapeutic I could honestly talk about my love for cats all day. I don't know much about support animals (other than...

    Hi Kayden,

    Congrats on the great news about your housing and getting the support you need!!! Sorry to hear about the slight slip up you had, but perhaps consider labelling it as just that- a slip up- and committing to yourself to not act on those behaviours in the future. Easier said than done, but maybe worth trying?!

    How are you getting on today?

    Hey Shaunie,

    Sorry to hear youíre not feeling great again. Itís really great that you came back to this thread to get some support J. I think a lot of people on the boards can relate to your feelings of numbness, and maybe even the feeling of crying so much. Although itís frustrating to cry so much, maybe itís what your body really needs. I often feel some emotional release after a good...

    hey Lostsense,

    That sounds so exciting! My cousin also had a baby a few months ago and it was so fun to finally meet her. Babies are endlessly adorable Best of luck for your friend in the delivery of her son! Maybe you can ask your friend to send a few pictures every one in awhile so you can see him grow before you meet him!?

    Hey Robert,

    The friend zone is definitely a tricky spot. This is actually a really great point to bring up during our conversation about communication! Since finding yourself in the friend zone can be frustrating (to say the least), perhaps working to communicate with the potential partner about your intentions and desires from the start could help clarify the nature of the relationship...

    Heya all,

    emishere,good shout, you're definitely on to something there! Thereís certainly a desire to be understood, and feelings of frustration when we are misunderstood, especially with someone who we care about.

    Like you said, self-reflection can be really important to organise and understand your thoughts before you try to articulate them to your partneróbut perhaps...

    Hey Shaunie,

    It sounds like you were having a really low night last night. I'm sure you know this, but it can often take several rounds of treatment to really recover from eating issues, so perhaps it's too harsh for you to expect yourself to be better after one round? How are you getting on today?

    Hoping today will be a better day

  • Hey Robert,

    I can appreciate what you're saying. In my experience, there can be a tendency for people to kind of bash on people who sleep in late, but I think that's just how society views sleeping in. If possible, I would encourage you to just ignore them. Yes, it might not be logical or fair for people to bug you about sleeping in, but it's just how many people are, and perhaps the...

    Hey Shaunie,

    Best of luck with your appointment on Wednesday. It sounds like they've been a little sneaky setting up the appointment for you, but hopefully it will be to your benefit, even if you don't feel you need it (which, like Mike said, is not an uncommon feeling to have).

    I can understand where you're coming from feeling like others deserve the support more than you,...

  • Hey laura,

    Thanks for the update. That was really brave of your to open up to your brownie leader, so pat yourself on the back for that! Hopefully being honest with her will make you feel more at ease around her.
    I'm sorry to hear work is still making you self-conscious. While easier said than done, you might try to remind yourself that people tend to be very caught up in their...

    Hey Shaunie,

    It sounds like you have a lot of mixed feelings about this guy. Did everything go okay when you had him around on saturday morning? How are you feeling about it now?

    Hi Shaunie,

    It sounds like the diagnosis doesn't really fit with your perception of yourself, and that's completely okay. While Robert isn't necessarily wrong in general about common symptoms of BPD, everyone has their own experiences and just because other people with BPD might act a certain way, doesn't mean you will (or that BPD is the correct diagnosis for you). Regardless of the...

    replied to How do you keep going
    Hey horsemad,

    It sounds like you're going through a really hard time right now, but there are definitely things worth staying for. First and foremost, it's worth fighting for yourself. Fight for a better life for yourself. Fight because you deserve and can absolutely achieve something better.

    How are you getting on today?

    Hugs

  • Hi Laura,

    Great that you're using the boards to get support for this! It's definitely up to you to decide what is best for you. Although, perhaps consider the possible support your manager or brownies leader could give you in keeping yourself accountable and making sure you take lunch and have enough time to eat a proper meal. It's just a thought. As uncomfortable as the conversations...
