Hi, do you feel like garbage? I have some suggestions for you.
Somehow, in just a couple of weeks, I'd disclosed more to my online therapist than I had with my previous therapist that I'd worked with for over a year.
It's not logical... but OCD isn't logical, either.
The self-hating borderline is the one that the world loves the most. It's an uncomfortable truth, then, when I tell people that I don't hate myself.
I walked away feeling like I had to carry this burden alone.
So long as we keep treating borderline as synonymous with abuse, we take a very painful and difficult disorder and deeply stigmatize it.
Sometimes we forget that there's more to life than just being okay.
If you truly cared about mentally ill people, you'd advocate for any paths in recovery that make life more livable for us.
Emotional self-harm? It's a thing.
