I came across this 30-day challenge and thought I would give it a go since I’ve only recently been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. I’m going to use this challenge to help me learn more about BPD as I explore my answers to the different questions. There might be days I squeeze two or three days into one post.
Day 1, Think of the last time you were really angry. Why was that?
Day 2: Why did your last friendship end?
Day 3: Do you self-harm? If yes, why?
Day 4: Have you ever attempted suicide?
Day 5: Have you ever written a suicide note?
Day 6: How is your love life?
Day 7: Have you ever dissociated? If so, how often?
Day 8: Do you have any other diagnoses? Which ones?
Day 9: Do you get mood swings?
Day 10: What kind of impulsive decisions have you made?
Day 11: Is there anything you do that helps keep you grounded?
