So if someone is thinking about doing a 5150 on themselves, because they are homeless and "without hope"; and they ask me if it is crazy to do that, what do I tell them? Another words, is this a smart idea for them or not (rational). What the hell is rational anyway, if it solves your immediate problem, that leads to other problems?
aprilmayrocks posted a topic in Personality Disorders - Fuck Off! No, Wait. Fuck Me Now!I was reading an article about borderline and came across this: Hypersexuality in the Borderline is an intricate issue. On one hand, she uses it to escape her numbness and emptiness. http://gettinbetter.com/dance.html This is exactly what I do! I use sex to help feel the empty void I feel. Does anyone else do this? I am not sure if this is the most healthiest way to cope with my emotions but it works.
I don't really know if this is the right place to post this, because I don't have an eating disorder in the usual sense of the word. But it wouldn't fit anywhere else, so I'll just go with it. I tend to restrict and/or purge when I'm feeling out of control. Mostly purge, because it's a more instant release. It's not a weight thing or anything, which is why I said it's not an ED in the 'usual sense'. Anyway, right now my life is sort of crumbling around me and I feel the desperate urge to regain some control. But, I know it's a downward spiral from there and I'm not supposed to lose any more weight. What do you do to keep from relapsing?
