Still so many people are afraid to talk about mental health and suicide. There is still a taboo around it. Please know that talking about it saves lives. We talk about breaking our arm, we understand when it is a physical illness, but when it comes to our brain people shy away.
If you’re suffering from depression and are looking for a sign to not go through with ending your life, this is it. This is the sign. We care.
If you see this on your Twitter, retweet it. You could save a life..
If someone opens up to you about their #BPD, be aware that they are trusting you, which doesn't come easily to those with BPD. It took an awful lot of courage to open up to you. Please don't judge, just listen to them, be kind, be compassionate, ask them what they need.
It's not always easy to live with #BPD - sometimes it can feel unbearable. But with proper medication, therapies and support, you can live well with BPD. To find support available in your area, check out our support directory or drop us an email. http://www.borderlinesupport.org.uk.
Often what we feel on the inside is very different to what we are really feeling on the outside when struggling with #anxiety.
If you're finding it hard to cope, & need support with anxiety - get in in touch; 03444 775 774
You might not be able to see someone’s pain, trauma, hurt or heartache but that doesn’t make it any less real.
People may act happy, smiley, but inside they are hurting so bad.
Just remember it only takes a minute to text a friend or loved one and ask them how they’re doing
