Have I lost my friend?

My friend was diagnosed with BPD many years ago. I didn't know until a few months ago. It has helped explain some of the problems she deals with in her life. I'm trying to learn about this illness because I care about her very much.

We've had many ups and downs during our friendship, but I always wanted to keep her as my friend. Lately, when she looks at me, it seems as if she ...

Lost My way

So I cut for the first time in say 18months the other day and I don't think im going to be able to stop again. I don't post on here as often as should because for some reason I tell myself I don't need help. However that's probably because I don't know how to ask for help. I am extremely good at dodging questions and changing subjects without most people catching on and its helped ...

has anyone here ever had any brain imaging testing done? Like MRI's or CAT scans of your brain? There's a University here that says they're conducting research and it kinda scares me, but at the same time I'm curious to see /know what the results would be as far as my own personal results...So that's why I was asking to see if anyone here ever had any of that type of research or testing done ...

Lithium compared to Zyprexa. Does it make sedated?

Hi. I am planning to switch to Lithium from Zyprexa. Does Lithium make sedated as much as Zyprexa or it can not even be compared and Lithium does not make sedated and sleep a lot? Secondly, is Lithium+Lamictal a good combo? And do you suggest me to switch to Lithium? And does lithium affect cognition?

Mood Going Down & I Don't Know Why


I've noticed my mood changing a bit the last few days in that I've been having episodes of feeling weepy and melancholic. I thought the depression phase had ended. I don't know why I get these episodes coming back now. They came out of the blue at first but today I've felt general malaise for the whole day. (Also felt shaky)

In general, I still have a lot of anxiety, panic and a bit ...

Do you think going to a restaurant alone is weird?

When I am alone at a restaurant, people stare me down and stare me out and servers almost pay no attention and servers are rude towards me -- I think it's because they know they will get less tip. But I have to go to somewhere to eat something. I do not want to go to a fast-food such as subway sandwiches or McDonald or stuff like that. I feel really uncomfortable at any restaurant. ...
