Welcome to That Girl With BPD. I started this blog to help others with their mental illnesses - and underestimated how much it would help me too. This site isn't just for those of us with BPD, depression or anxiety. It's for anyone. 

If you're ever in need, please feel free to drop me a message.

No one should ever feel alone. X

So today I have been struggling badly. I had to come back to hospital earlier than expected as I had a suicidal episode and couldn’t be on my own. Whenever I get really low I love reading quotes - and this is one of my favourites.

So lets start with who I am right now. I think the fact I am in hospital basically sums this up. I am unwell. I am poorly.

I am an anxious mess; I am depressed; I am suicidal to the point where I have tried to commit suicide four times in the past three months (nearly a...

On a bad day, my mood is rock bottom. I will cry all day, feel incredibly suicidal, harm myself, feel lost, feel as though there is no hope in the world. Although these days are extremely hard, to me, these are normal. These days are where I am mostcomfortable. To thos...
