Is my coping mechanism for survivors guilt normal?

Just as a bit of background, I'm 24, female, Caucasian of German decent and asexual.  Don't know if any of it really matters in this scenario but, hormones has something to do with mental health so....just throwing it out there I guess?  Anyway, it hadn't really bothered me until recently, but I've been feeling something strange and the best way I can describe it, is like a survivors guilt sort of thing.
So, my ...

Hi guys, I was diagnosed with BPD 4 years ago when I was 23 whilst I was attending a Therapeutic Community. This TC felt like a whirlwind, to be honest it really messed me up for a while, especially at the end, when you have been going there for a year everyday, then nothing. People went there own ways, therapists disregard you except for a monthly email/phone call. This did not bode well with my ...

Coping with loss

I'm just going to come right out and say it. I lost my mother on May 6th, 2017, and I don't even know how I'm functioning. The pain and feeling of loss runs so deep inside, I wasn't even able to get out of bed for the first two weeks. I had to see her lying dead on the dirty ass floor in her room, and then I had to see her in a box. ...

How to deal with recurring negative thoughts?

Pretty soon I'm going to be in a situation that will cause me to think a lot about a particular bad memory I have and the thoughts will likely make me feel depressed, alone, and hopeless. Sadly I can't see my therapist before then. I'll do a lot of positive self talk and all but I wonder if there are additional ways to stop obsessing over the same bad memory?

Dealing with OCD thoughts - my approach

First, avoid logic. No logic will work. It will simply make you ruminate and go round in circles.

Second, never look forward to a true or false answer. Everything in the world is fuzzy with a blurred border. OCDs typically obsess because they think everything is well defined and crisp. Nons on the other hand know that nothing is 100%. If you claim that you are a pure girl, you are lying. There will certainly ...
