The ins and outs of loneliness


Prayers finally answered!

Posted by Angeni Mai , 27 October 2014 · 74 views

It has been a trying few weeks between leaving my sister's house due to her boyfriend, her refusing to speak to me until I pay them, etc., but one of my prayers has finally been answered. I received the SSA's decision regarding my SSI claim. It was APPROVED!

I am more relieved than words can convey. It feels as if the clouds have lifted and the weight o...


Facebook stupidity (RANT)

Posted by Angeni Mai , 30 September 2014 · 132 views

Before you read, grab some popcorn and a drink. This is long and better than a soap opera and drama series combined.

My sister posted a status about me a little while ago and tagged my best friend in it. She is so technologically challenged that she doesn't realize that I can still post on her status via my other profile that I have not blocked her o...


Back home

Posted by Angeni Mai , 30 September 2014 · 67 views

I got back home at 2:09am on Sunday, September 28th. Things simply did not work out with me moving to my sister's house because her boyfriend is an asshole who is physically, mentally, verbally and emotionally abusive. I am glad to be out of there and away from that. I could not deal, let alone live with, someone like that for an extended period of time l...


Irritated to no end

anger, irritation, thoughts
I swear that the universe is trying to tell me I will not be approved for SSI. My lawyer's secretary and I were supposed to have an after hours call so that she could get the info for the ADR from me but she called last minute to tell my dad and I that we'll have to have the call tomorrow at 6:30pm because she forgot that she has to take her dad to the do...


Long three weeks ahead

I am excited and nervous about the next three weeks. The breakdown is like this -

Week 1 - August 25th to 31st:
1) Call the pro-bono mental health clinic to set up an evaluation, 2) make an appt to go see the gdoc by Friday, 3) call and get my medical records from IP stays, 4) talk to lawyer's secretary to fill out disability report, 5) meet with law...


Memory issues causing fear and terror

Posted by Angeni Mai , 16 August 2014 · 130 views

I have been dealing with some memory issues for a couple months. I'm going to make an appointment to talk to my PCP about this but I would like to know what you all think.

My memory was fine before I stopped taking my meds in May. My memory seemed fine for a while afterward but soon it got to the point where I could not remember things I had thought 2...


To be honest

TBH, Self, image
To be honest I hate receiving compliments 99% of the time. I feel like people are either just telling me what I want to hear or l feel like they give me compliments so that they can laugh about things and talk about me behind my back. I don't know if I'll ever be able to accept compliments without feeling like people have an ulterior motive for praising m...

Well, as the title suggests, I've created a Facebook group. It's a group for people who have a diagnosis or suspect having Borderline Personality Disorder and like to dabble in the arts. No matter your medium, all art is welcome. Please read the rules in the description of the group.


I hope to get this...

Just another sleepless night

insomnia, tired, creative and 2 more...
I am feeling pretty well lately. Ever since being put on Saphris, my life has changed for the better. It has literally been my saving grace. There is so much more that I can do and not be afraid of having a meltdown, outburst, or panic attack. I hope that my doctor will let me stay on it for a while, if not long term.
School is going very well. I have com...

changing, worse and better
Well, nobody ever said that I would feel good forever. I can't stop feeling like I'm just a waste of time and space. I don't understand why I have to feel like this. I would love to be stable for a while before having another change in how I feel but I can't seem to do that. Just ONCE I would love to feel like I actually matter and what I do has a positiv...


Ready to move forward

college, English, class, school
I signed up for English 102 yesterday. I am ready to start class already. I hope this is a good sign of what is to come.

I called the head of the English department a little while ago. She said that taking English 101 and 102 with the combination of creative writing and regular composition is extra, not necessity, to be accepted into the Creative Writin...

I will be going to officially register for classes on Tuesday. I would go tomorrow but it is MLK day tomorrow and all schools are closed in observation of said day.

I am so excited to be going back to school but, at the same time, I am scared shitless. What if I fail? What if I get anxiety and start cutting classes like I did back when I was in my second...

Well, it was good while it lasted.

Anxiety/ panic attacks are back and, apparently, here to stay. I've been having constant anxiety coupled with sporadic panic attacks and it's not getting any better. I'm not sure what caused it to start up again as I am on a daily med regiment to control it but it's not working anymore apparently.

There are a couple...

Residential treatment a no go ... :(

Posted by Angeni Mai , 31 December 2013 · 263 views

I have recently come to the realization that my best chance at recovery for all of my issues would be to enter a long-term residential treatment program. Easy to apply? Yes. Easy on the wallet? HELL NO!

I did some research into treatment facilities near me that treat most or all of my disorders and issues relating to them. The best fit was a treatment ce...


I'm mixed and I know it ...

Posted by Angeni Mai , 31 December 2013 · 149 views

This is the Fifth night in the last week That I have not been able to sleep due to being in a mixed episode. If I was purely manic I would be able to handle it well but not sleeping in a mixed state is terribly dangerous for me, as I am even more unstable than in a manic or depressed state.

I hate being mixed because I am energetic but too unmotivated t...


Long overdue updates!

Posted by Angeni Mai , 29 December 2013 · 162 views

Hey guys! I'm sorry it has been so long since my last update. 2013 has been a long, hectic year for me.

In April I was admitted to an inpatient facility and was there for a month but wasn't doing any better once I left. I was sent back five subsequent times and am still not doing very well. My therapist wants me to go back inpatient and to rehab come mid...

Prayers So far there are officially 22 injured, 2 killed by whomever decided to be an asshole and set off two bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. I will be praying for them all.

Hopefully the death toll does not rise.


Sleepless in Maryland

Posted by Angeni Mai , 15 April 2013 · 231 views
tired, depressed, anxious
Sleepless in Maryland Well, it doesn't have the same ring, nor plot, as Sleepless in Seattle but you get the idea. I didn't really sleep much at all last night. I managed to fall asleep at 9 pm and sleep until 11:30 pm, but after that it was a lost cause. I'm wondering whether it is purely depression related, anxiety related (because of my doctor appointments tomorrow), or a m...
