"Hi there,

Welcome to the boards. Hope you gind it more helpful.

Its hard to find support, sorry that no one will take you to see your gp/doctor i am not sure if this is the same for you but you are aload to book doctors appointments without your parents being there and you can attend them unacccompanied.

Depression and other illness can be quite scary especially when your quite young. Do have a look round the site there are lots of useful articles and information on here.

You are not alone.

Sunday to thursday we have support chats and general chats on at 8pm till 9:30pm if you would like to join them. They are a great way to get to know people and seak support at the same time. Heres the link to the page -

Hope to see you round

  • 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

    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow

    Think ability, not disability

      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 ?
