Mood – Numb
I’ve never told anyone…or even documented it until now but I have had thoughts for some time about hurting others.
Please don’t jump to any conclusions that I am a bad person, I pride myself on being kind and gentle. But I often get massively inappropriate urges, have never acted on them. The urges are extreme though, I can’t hold a knife without something inside of me telling me to push it into someone. I don’t know why but I feel like I have to do it and thank fuck I don’t but still it’s disturbing me.
It’s awful but I get these urges around family members and I just don’t know why it’s so confusing.
At times it seems like the only option and I will physically shake with what feels like anger. The urge and voice inside telling me to hurt and destroy. But why? I don’t know why I would need to do this so why do I feel it?!
I don’t think I can ever tell anyone I know about these feelings/urges. Not even professional therapists.
Am I alone or do others have this voice wanting them to be violent ? (I said voice, I’m pretty sure it’s my own voice telling me).
I feel more alone that ever. Yesterday my mood changed and I properly felt it, like I was not in my body and I observed the moment it just switched as if floating above.
Mood – OK
Just checking in. Feeling alright. After a meeting with my CPN last week I feel I need to work on accepting my illness rather than get more depressed when I realise it isn’t going to go away.
I think acceptance is a huge part of recovery, possibly the most important part. There is no cure but I can learn to manage it.
Mood – No
My mental health diary. The log of my shitty little life. I feel so defeated. The air around me feels so heavy like I am about to cave in everywhere. Nothing has any meaning. I just absolutely cannot be fucked. I was having suicidal thoughts earlier, imagining myself hanging in the toilets at my therapists. Using the belt I have on, it’s a stretchy one that tightens the more you pull it….a bit like an exercise band. But now? I can’t even be fucking arsed doing that. Literally can’t move.
Mood – Not happy.
Here’s a quick sketch of how I feel. Alive at sea, not drowning but watching fun from the outside. My partner told me they don’t feel loved tonight…I think I love them but I can’t feel it. I can’t feel anything. Could this be my medication?
BBC News: Personality disorder patients ‘let down’ by system
Personality disorder patients ‘let down’ by system – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-42647972
Some main news coverage! It’s about time. For too long have personality disorders been brushed under the carpet. The government are scared to tackle it because of the mind boggling cost it would take to readjust treatment to the level other illnesses have. You could almost say that it’s one of those expensive problems that is solving itself as the sufferers are killing themselves.
I don’t know if anything will actually come from this article but at least it’s there. It’s extra awareness and the more people know the bigger voice we have.
22:19 My first drawing for this site. 😬
A bit about this drawing – it is drawn from the mind. Which sounds crazy and hippie-like but basically I start drawing and what happens happens. This particular drawing depicts a memory of mine…
About a year ago I was suffering from psychosis and had these awful hallucinations that the devil was clawing towards me. I had a defensive ‘shell’ around me but I couldn’t stop him and he gets inside. Once inside I felt an evil presence moving inside my bones like smoke.
