I've used that site a few times.....It can be a bit intense, but I never parted with any money.....when I was first diagnosed with BPD it was really helpful to talk about some of the more tricky aspects of that with others in a similar situation.

I spose with hindsights it's the dissociation that I find the most tricky and I'm not sure to what extent that features in the BPD diagnosis or whether it's a comorbid issue.

Welcome you to have a look at my website.

I had a mental breakdown 3 years ago, suffer with anxiety, depression and Ulcerative Colitis.

Since I stopped working in 2009 I have learnt some basic website building skills and have used those to share my experiences and build this website. I also find the writing therapeutic too.

I would welcome any feedback.

When my patner L had a relapse of his Schzophrenia rencently i made a list of as many helplines as possible and made a table. Name of organiazation/charity, phone number, who we spoke to and whether they were any good I put a rating column in there also the days and times they were open and what they could help with?

It was very useful. we found Mood Swings and hearing voices network very useful don't think they are mentioned on the first list i might be wrong) i thought the long list was very good though it contains many I hadn't heard of. I think te list will help a lot of people :D
With ours i goggled UK helplines. Rethink was also very helpful I found not just schizophrenic sites but depression as he has been diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenia with bipolar so i included depression ones and also anxiety as he got panic attacks.

was a lovely lady at a place in bristol that will give 1/2 hour i think of emotional support. We noted down the ones that seemed to help the most. Some we couldn't get through on at all and some were only organizations/charities for their area but not nationally. Hearing voices were very good and sent us some coping strategies from people who really understood the same with mood swings everyone on the end of the phone suffered with mood swings so we felt better knowing they truely understood. :)

Hope that helps too hugs Annie xxx
