Re: My boyfriend had BPD

Hi Corb, I know exactly how you feel as I still see my husband as the man I fell in love with too and know that he is a great guy. It is just this awful illness that takes hold at times and makes him extremely emotional and angry. I too can feel guilty at taking time out for myself to see friends/fa...

Re: Working on a PICU ward.

Hi Peachesxx, It is only understandable that you would get upset at a patient self-harming; you are only human. I wouldn't worry about things too much as it sounds as though your colleagues are really supportive and will realise how difficult the job can be at first, especially if you are new to it....

Re: Early Intervention NHS disappointing

Hi jquinn, I'm sorry that your friend's son is going through such a difficult time and hasn't had the best experience of their CMHT.

Re: My boyfriend had BPD

Having a husband who has Mixed Personality Disorder, I know how tough that is and how stressful/upsetting that can be. Please try to look after yourself as you will be a good support for your boyfriend if you stay strong and look after your own physical/mental health. It sounds as though you are alr...

Re: Help with depression in husband
