my psychiatrist makes it very apparent that he doesn’t want me to think of myself as someone who has borderline personality disorder. he rarely ever uses the term, and when he does, he makes sure to always tell me that he doesn’t want me to fixate on the diagnosis. i understand this, but i feel that being reminded that i am a person who does struggle with a mental illness is actually helpful. i’ve made a lot of progress, but i still encounter a lot of problems that connect back to borderline behaviors. i feel like it’s really reassuring for me to be reminded that i do struggle with a personality disorder and that these behaviors aren’t unprecedented and that other people also experience them, too!!! i feel like i constantly get really down on myself but it’s so much easier to deal with when i’m reminded that there isn’t something wrong with me, that it’s just something that i need to work on and that can be overcome.
ok that is all.
something nice: a nice boy bought me this beautiful perfume after i told him that it was my favorite. a lot of things are going right for me.
