A borderline's reaction to current events

The Manchester terrorist attacks just happened. And this new act of terror is not one to leave the borderline unaffected. In such times most people sick out the companionship and comfort of family and friends, loved ones in general. But borderlines don't have friends, and have little to no contact with family. So, they have to rely on self to find comfort.

Once self awareness has been achieved this is not a big problem, as the borderline will have developed a multitude of copying skills for distressing situations. But it gets particularly hard for the borderline who is still struggling with emotional breakdowns and have not yet achieved awareness this early phase , usually means trouble for whomever the borderline is currently engaged in a relationship with, and two possible outcomes, either the significant other shows emotional support or they distance themselves which will have the effect of triggering the fear of abandonment coupled with the current distressful situation and result in disaster.

As I have come to learn there is no guide book on how to survive BPD unless letting it run it's course. Of course for those lucky enough to have the means to afford a psychiatrist that will always be a fine alternative to complete isolation and self destructive behaviors. So if you can, seek help and don't isolate yourself, don't be needy for others either or they will tend to walk away from you. Stay calm, take a deep breath and seek human companionship, at the Gym, Church, or any other positive social gathering, to help you through this tough time.
