Living with mental illness and becoming a psychologist

Postby Fruedfan11 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 1:30 am

Hello. I’d just like to introduce myself. I am Fruedfan11-yes, a nod to Freud himself, though admittedly mispelled-i live in a house that is occupied with those who suffer from mental illness,including myself. i have been diagnosed as having Bordeline Personalty Disoder,(BPD). I believe my Psycholocolgist made a good call, too.
It is my hopes to become professionally involved in this field myself one day, and am making strides to attend schooling for the subject. To say this fascinates me is an understatement. My reasoning behind it is to help better understand myself and others, or at least put the subject in perspective.
I’d like to make friends and meet kindred spirits, also. I thank you for accepting me into this community and I find acceptance from others rare for me. Stigma is very applicable to my life, and I appreciate all the support I can get. So once again, thank you.
