These are my favourite blogs discussing the conditions of borderline personality disorder and (complex) post-traumatic stress disorder, with which I am also diagnosed. Please feel free to contact me if you know of any other great blogs in this category.

  1. I just wanted to say that I relate to your bit ‘about the author’ I have all those diagnoses apart from bipolar. I have been treated for bipolar in the past though, but that was in my early 20’s, I’m 39 now. I’m also a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and rape in my early 20’s. I also have suicide ideation. I’ve been recovering from alcoholism these past 2 years and would say that it has improved my life. I still can’t perform like ‘normal’ people though. I never had children because of what happened when I was little, I’m also single as I know I need to be that way for a while, my relationships have been chaotic. I’m in receipt of DLA for the past 6 years, I haven’t been in paid employment since May 1991 when I left my job suffering from a schizophrenic psychosis. The new government plans really frighten me and whenever I’ve had to do forms or medicals it’s made me really ill. I am very lucky that there is a lady at Mind who helps with all of this. I hope that you can find some peace of mind.

  2. Thanks for putting me on your blogroll, however I must object to being in the bpd/ptsd catagory. Neither of those are diagnoses which I have or have had. I am merely depressed (‘cept for the weirdness caused by what the stupid citalopram did to me),

    • Sorry. Where there is no clear statement of diagnosis/es, I act on the information available to me on the blog, and in this case fell into the trap of making the erroneous self-harm/PTSD connection. I’ll move it in a minute.

  3. Wow! It’s an honor to be on the blogroll of such an amazing writer! BPD/PTSD is a fine place to park me. If you want the password for my “Supplementary Material,” you can see the long list of official and armchair diagnoses on my Bio page. Let me know. Thank you for including me!

  4. Hey!

    Thank you for adding me to your blogroll… it is an honour. And thank you for your kind words on my post the other day, they mean a lot, so thank you.

    Take Care xx
