6 Month Anniversary


Blogging milestone! It’s the 6 month anniversary of Beyond the Borderline Personality blog!



I don’t know about you, but I feel this is a pretty big deal. Of course, everything feels like a pretty big deal to me (BPD humor). In honor of this day I am taking the day off from real posting and would like to express my appreciation of you.
Thank you for following me. For stopping by. For leaving comments. For simply being with me in spirit. The support and encouragement I’ve received from so many of you means the world to me. I truly, truly appreciate every minute that you spend reading my blog and commenting here. It helps me immensely to know that there are other people out there struggling with the same things I am. To those fighting with Borderline Personality Disorder and/or to those with loved ones who fight with BPD, that I can be of aid or assistance, even in a small way, makes me feel like despite this challenge something good can come from it. And that’s really the message I want to bring here. Education, information, encouragement, support and hope. Some days are better than others. Some days are far worse than it seems possible to bear. But there’s always another day. Writing this blog has helped me so much in the realization of what I’ve struggled with and raised my personal self-awareness in a manner that has allowed me to get a better grasp on this disorder.  You, dear readers, are what have really made it worth it. So thank you. I appreciate you and the time you’ve spent with me.

So now what? Well, I’m gonna keep going of course. I live in a perpetual state of being afraid that I’ll run out of things to say. Here and in real life. It’s one of more irrational and unfounded fears, but I’m always afraid that there will be an end to the ideas and the flow for conversation. Fortunately I have no short supply of topics and ideas for this blog =) So a preview of some things to come. Eventually. And in multilple parts.
-          Bipolar and Borderline Personality Disorders: A study in comparisons and contrasts
-          Neurological, physiological, biological and genetic studies of the BPD brain
-          Personality Disorder Testing (MMPI, etc)
-          Depression
-          Schematherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
-          Borderline Empathy
-          Causes and contributing factors
-          Family Support
-          And of course more of what I’ve been continuing to touch on.

I’d like to open up the forum to you guys. Are there any topics you’d like me to tackle? Take a deeper look at and/or add emphasis to? Ideas for posts? I know I’ve made note of a few topics I wanted to pursue for future posts so feel free to remind me of them if I didn’t mention some. Is there anything you’d like to know about me… be it BPD related or not? Feel free to ask! Either here in the comments or e-mail me at havennyx@gmail.com .  And as always, your questions, comments, and any old random thing you feel like saying is always welcome!
So there we go. 6 months of constant blogging. I put a lot of time, effort and energy into research and writing for this blog.  I’m pretty proud of myself for this.

Thank you for journeying with me.

  1. I follow this blog almost daily. I do not have BPD myself (Bi-polar maybe), but dearly love someone who does. I'm just waiting for the right moment, the right time to direct him here. We've taken a break from eachother, so it's hard right now.

    I find your journey fascinating, awesome; and I'm cheering you on. It's remarkable to see the progress as you go through the history of posts. Thanks for sharing your journey. Em

  2. Congrats!!! You've definitely made my world much better and I have learned so much from your blog. I think for me the thing I like the most is that you make the medical mumbo jumbo easy for me to understand. I especially like your posts where you copy/paste something from somewhere and then explain it in terms that mere mortals can understand. It has given me such an insight into myself that I never had before.

  3. I am so grateful to have found your blog. My husband and daughter struggle with BPD as well as some of my d.i.d. parts. So I am somewhat familiar with it. However your post explain things to me in a way in which I can totally understand. Some books I have read...well I have to read it over and over.
    Congratulations on 6 months and keep up the good work. I look forward to reading more!
    Take care.

    I never really thought that I would have an impact on people in any way. That I've received such feedback and support means so much to me. I really appreciate it and I'm grateful that I could contribute something meaningful to you.
