In this blog post, I talk about 3 essential BPD blogs to inspire you when researching BPD.
When you’re first diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD), you’re thirsty for information. You want to inhale as much as you can to help understand yourself and your new condition better.
That’s exactly what I did and is something you should definitely do. But, if you’ve already started falling down the Google rabbit-hole, you’ll have noticed that not all information is positive information.
There is still a lot of stigma surrounding BPD, hence why it can be really tricky to find accurate and reassuring information when you need it.
That’s why I have put together a list of 3 essential BPD blogs to inspire you on your journey of discovery. They are:
And here’s why I think these 3 essential BPD blogs to inspire are so great:
Rosie Cappuccino is a blogger, author and lives with BPD. She was diagnosed in 2014 and has been blogging ever since. She wants to be sure that no one feels alone in their BPD experience and her website is great for this. Rosie talks openly, honestly and from a place of experience. The reassuring nature of her site makes you feel that actually, having BPD is not all doom and gloom. She also has a great range of videos about Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) which can really help those living with borderline personality disorder. Visit her site by clicking here.
Paige Emilee’s blog is an open and honest recollection of her life with BPD. She asks thought-provoking questions and her writing is really relatable. Her site reminds me of a diary which lets you into her world and her experiences. Read some of her great posts here.
Another great blog which is regularly updated with great insight and some humour too. Borderline Me has set up their blog, again, like a diary. It feels really personal and that they’re sharing some powerful emotions and experiences, which, if you have BPD you’ll know, can be very overwhelming. Read more of their posts here.
Although my BPD diagnosis is currently in turmoil, I can safely say that reading about other people’s experiences has really helped me to get a grasp on what BPD is. They’ve also helped me to understand the condition better and for a while, live with it in almost harmony.
As I always say, I’m not a medical professional and so these suggestions are just personally what I found useful.
There’s so much negativity in the world that you just need to find the positives and the information you find about BPD can be really helpful in understanding who you are a bit more.
