    Worthless

    I have BPD, and have been trying to do all that I know to overcome the absolute hell that I experience every day in my own mind. I was asked by a someone in my support system yesterday if I want to be “normal.” Of course that is my number one goal. This one statement has caused my thoughts to race, and all my mind is telling me is that I’m worthless, a burden on everyone around me, and hopeless. I’m discouraged because I’ve fought daily to improve, but to no avail. I always fall back to feeling like this and thinking the same thoughts. I ask myself if there is hope? Am I really a burden? Am I honestly worthless? Does everyone else around me think this about me as well?

    RE: Worthless

    Hi there,

    What kinds of treatments have you tried? Have you tried medication? Therapy? If not, that's where I would start! This is not something you can just "work hard at" and get better.

    Oh, and YES, there IS hope! and NO, you are NOT worthless! That's the depression talking, and one of the things you can learn in therapy is how to tame those thoughts and learn new, more healthy ways of thinking - thus, changing how you feel and behave!

    Get some professional help if you are not already! It's not easy work, but it's worth it, and you can do it!

    Hope
