All my life i was Bullied
Felt Pained
And was Damaged
Do you know what is BPD?
Cause then you wouldn't understand my story
Or how i live my life
In the midst of this hollow
You see me like am charming
But you don’t know i can be self harming
This confusion in my head
Got me sinking into darkness
Sometimes i see the sunshine
But then am back inside this storm
Constantly reminding me
How worthless i'm living
It's a love hate story
I wish i could explain more
Lay the words in my head out
But the pain i'm feeling is excruciating
It's killing and really crazy
I can't do much explaining
The emotions are raw and intense
Like being enveloped in anger
With no way out of this maze
I know you think am crazy
Truth is sometimes I think am crazy
When the feeling is overwhelming
Welcoming into this darkness
And i'm always in this constant battle
Which feels like am never winning
I'm either black or white
With no colour in between

    It's awful when people bully and pull others down especially when the people they bully already has more than their fair share of struggles. BPD doesn't mean you are crazy it just means that you are beset with ill health. Ill health whether physical or otherwise takes its toll but there are good and bad days. Sending you a warm hug and my prayers. Milly x

    Stay strong, these same people who feel the need to make you feel bad will hopefully understand what they do is wrong. They may be fighting their own demons. I'm not excusing them, just trying to understand them better. Dont let another steal your sunshine.
