Save Me

Photos taken by contributor SaveMeFromBPD, a 28-year-old woman who suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder, Major Depression, and mild OCD. In 2010, she had a major breakdown and has been in and out of hospitals since, in both Europe and the Middle East. She has had some really traumatic experiences in the hospitals and in her life that have led her at times to self harm and attempt suicide. She is trying to hold on for her family, but it is not easy when she feels so hopeless. Something she does enjoy is creating art and poetry.

About these photos: “Taken 5 minutes ago in hospital where I lay and think is this all true? Who am I? Is it me in these photos? Have I changed since that fateful Saturday night just a few weeks ago, when I was violated in the most horrible and ugly way? 

I’m going through an upward and downward spiraling hell so I’m glad I’m in the hospital getting 24/7 help as and when I need it. One minute I’m broken down crying, then seriously angry and worked up, then today, totally numb. Physically I am doing better, but mentally there is a lot to work through. On top of everything else.

I feel like for once it’s someone else that’s really hurt me so I now don’t feel like hurting or doing anything to myself. It gives me more of a fight now to overcome all of these things and look after ME. I hope that will continue.

    A really nice post showing my recent portrait photos after the traumatic experience I had 10 days ago which is of course very fresh and it’s going to take some time to heal in many ways.
