    I've been playing badminton with that Mind charity. Good fun, it's good to get out the house and do exercise and interact with people.

    Found out why everyone there seems so normal....they're all volunteers not patients. :facepalm: And the person on my team kept making me lose, was so annoyed! Grrrrrrrrr! :mad:

    My thoughts are getting jumpy/paranoid. Hoping it's just a temporary effect of lack of meds/ no sleep/ lots of alcohol, because being suspicious of all the people walking around outside isn't fun, and neither was repeatedly throwing back the shower curtain this morning to check there was nobody there.

    I was just wondering, what do you all see/feel when you look into the mirror?

    I never really feel anything, because I feel completely disconnected from the person I see. I "know" logically that it's me, I can recognise my reflection and recognise myself in pictures, but it doesn't "feel" like it's me. I don't really know what it is I expect to see, but whatever it is I expect, it's not my actual reflection.

    i've done the shower curtain thing too many times :sigh: it always makes my shower twice as long as it should be, and gets water all over the floor!

    :hugs: hopefully it is just temporary cause of those reasons

    I get that sometimes. If I'm lying in the bath and I can't see the floor I'll keep sitting up to make sure nothing is crouching near the bath. Hope it passes soon because it really does suck!

    I know what you mean, it happened to me just once when I was really upset... it passed though.

    Lack of sleep can most definitely do that to you. Maybe try and cut back on the alcohol too.

    Are you borderline too? I feel outnumbered here
    I'm borderline!

    Well, I've been diagnosed borderline quite recently, I don't know how I feel about this

    Yeah I know.
    Problem is at the moment that it's the only thing that stops all the thoughts dragging away in my head.

    I hope I can sleep tonight... still not at all tired after 41 hours awake.

    Remember guys: abuse + self harm = BPD.

    Yay! (Well not yay that you are borderline, but yay that there are some out there )

    :hugs: I got diagnosed for the first time about a year ago, and I had the same, no idea what to feel about it either. I still sometimes think "There is no way I have this", and try and push it all away, but I suppose that isn't very productive... Well I try not to anymore. Are you getting treatment for it?

    Mmm. Caffeine probably played its part overnight, but now the daylight seems to be keeping me awake, even with my curtains drawn so people can't see me.

    Hopefully I'll crash and sleep for like 24 hours :coma:

    You know any self harm means you must have a borderline personality. Being abused just makes their arguments stronger.

    You say that, but when I did it I only slept ~7-8 hours. Although that was the weekend FM 12 came out - I'm not losing valuable playing time to something as trivial as sleep.

    I had a good argument with the crisis team today. I also told them that I hear voices telling me to harm myself and they said it was 'transient psychosis' - "a crucial element of BPD". ****ers.

    I told them to tell me which 5 symptoms out of the 9 I fit into and they couldn't answer. Idiots. So they've arranged for the PD unit to come and assess me next week.
