Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Just a rant - no need to reply

    I'm meeting my new psychiatrist later and I'm actually so scared, what if they're just like the last one? What if they think bpd is incurable too? I suppose she actually wants to see me so that's a step forward, but I just have the words of my old one running through my head, that I'm never gonna get better, and he said there was no point in helping me cause I was gonna end up dead or in jail anyway. I'm Scared I'm never gonna get the right support cause of that being my primary diagnoses

    Hey bubbles s

    Firstly I wanted to reply cos it sounds like your struggling. It's normal to be scared when your meeting somebody new, is there anyone who could go with you for some extra support?

    That doesn't sound very nice what your old psychiatrist said to you, it's not the truth, your going to achieve things in your life, even the small things are achievements. This is a bump in recovery, it's normal to have bumps along the way, but that doesn't mean your not gonna get through this. Your stronger than you think

    Here for you if you need to talk about anything,

    Keep posting.

    Take care lovely one

      Thanks, it actually went okay, the first decent psychiatrist I've met! He looked at my notes and said my old psychiatrist was incompetent haha, so he decided not to read anymore and start fresh which was good as some of the stuff my old one wrote about me was awful. He even said I should start planning my future, cause he believes, even if I can't recover from my illnesses, I'll be able to at least manage them in everyday life, which actually made me cry with relief

      also, can I steal that wee paragraph for my recovery journal ?
