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?
My SO has issues that cause him to not like to be touched at all what-so-ever unless he is under t he influence. Because of my own mental health Dx, this is something that takes a tole on me at times. Do you guys with PTSD find anything helps you with this sort of thing? or can you recommend coping skills for me? I'm as understanding as I can be because I care very much for him. When I do get upset about it, he makes statements like "See?? I told you you'd come to hate me like the others". The emotions I'm feeling are shame and hurt, not anger or hate. So.. any advice? Thanks in advance.
