p-h-a-e-d-r-a asked
I just wanted to say that I requested some information be added about Selective Eating Disorder about a year ago, as I've suffered with it my whole life, and people seldom realise how difficult it can be and often blame the person and say they are just being fussy. I'm so glad that this blog added the information and as a result people have come forward with their difficulties with food that are non-weight related. I feel like I've helped them in a way. So thank you so much for adding the info

No problem :)

The Butterfly Project- If you are having trouble with self harm, here’s what you do.
The rules are:
When you feel like you want to cut, take a marker, pen, or sharpies and draw a butterfly on your arm or hand (or wherever the self injury occurs)
Name the butterfly after a loved one, or someone that really wants you to get better.
You must let the butterfly fade naturally. NO scrubbing it off.
 If you cut before the butterfly is gone, you’ve killed it. If you dont cut, it lives. If you have more than one butterfly, cutting kills all of them.
Another person may draw them on you. These butterflies are extra special. Take good care of them.
If you are struggling with self harm, it is never too late. It is a growing and widespread problem across the world. This is helpful, but if not effective, PLEASE seek further help. You are special and loved by your creator, there are brighter days ahead. This is for my anon, and its also for those of you out there who haven’t spoken out, your voice in the wilderness will be heard.

I have a general anxiety disorder and clinical depression and I know very well how real they are. Sure I learned coping methods, but I have to take meds for it. And without the meds I’d be a wreck. If you never have experienced an anxiety disorder or clinical depression you just don’t know how real it truly is.

Distinguishing Bipolar Disorder from Borderline Personality Disorder

"In people with BPD, the mood swings are more distinct.  While people with bipolar disorder swing between all encompassing periods of mania and major depression, the mood swings typical in BPD are more specific.  You have fear going up and down, sadness going up and down, anger up and down, disgust up and down, and love up and down."   Marsha M. Linehan, PHD
