  • Saturday after getting my boys to bed, I fell down a flight of stairs. I hit every step on the way down with my tailbone and the rest of my back. I went to the doctor yesterday because the pain in my tailbone hasn't gotten any better. He said I have a sacroiliac sprain. X-rays sowed no fracture in my tailbone. Also hoping I didn't damage the artificial disc I had put in my spine at L5-S1 in June...

    Losing someone close

    My heart goes out to the post below, the one for the loss of the oldest child 3 years ago. Davey Joe was my nephew, but was like a son. He lived with us during college, was only 2 weeks younger than my son, and the best friend of my son. He died in a motorcycle accident just a few months ago on 2/14/16.We wrote a song in memory of Davey Joe that has a great message, “keep your eyes on...
  • My oldest child died almost 3 years ago since then my life has never been the same. I have lost my job, list friends and other family issues. I really have no one to talk to, and hope to connect with others that understand. I feel lost and don't know where to pick up the pieces of my life.

    I have what many would consider an embarrassing addiction -- internet porn -- and I am one week clean but it feels like a year. Working from home gives me access whenever I want and I've discovered that I use it to distract, I guess like everyone uses any drug. It was something I became reliant upon on a daily basis I guess to avoid thoughts, depression, anxiety. It soothes me similar to my food...

    Can't Keep Going

    I just can't keep going. My depression is so bad and I can't see it getting better. I wish something would happen that would take me out of this life. I won't act upon it, just wish it would happen. The pain is relentless.

I would feel excited when making plans with friends however as it got closer to the time I would cancel. I don't know why. I don't know if it was the anxiety or depression. It's been a year now since I...
  • Hi All,My name is Victoria. I'm 25 years old. It wasn't until the tail end of last year/this year that I was brought to recognize what BPD is, and how it affects my life. It all began from a heartbreak two years ago, when my ex accused me of being bipolar and having BPD and breaking up with me. He said I was exactly like his ex wife, who had BPD. That thought haunted me, and I started going to...
