My first blog post!


Hello and welcome to my blog! Blogging is really new to me, so I’m quite nervous about it.

Me, that’s Lola, by the way.

I made a page where you can learn more about me and you get there either by clicking on ‘Me, Lola” up where the pages are, or by just clicking here.

Just a little collage to symbolize how much my perception of my world can change – often without notice – which makes for challenging crap happening.

This blog is going to be about how I experience my world. My world, which is tinted and sometimes distorted by BPD and PTSD, both of which you can read about on my extra pages, too. I hope that blogging will help me put my head together some. Just the same I also simply want to make my own voice heard, too. My mom, you know, is writing about life with me from her perspective, because the journey we are on together has been quite an eventful one since we met. But it’s all her point of view; which is fine, but not the whole picture. So here is my way to share my part.

I’m likely to blog about various big and small things concerning mental health and mental disorders, especially borderline and trauma, but also eating disorders, self harm, attachment, family life in general and probably some perfectly ordinary stuff, too, like Pink’s new album. (“The Truth About Love” – love it.)

If you want to comment on my thoughts, please do so! I’m always nervous about feedback – why that is so is probably going to be the topic for a separate post – but I’m also curious and I’d love to hear what you think! Just remember to stay nice and friendly, whether you can relate or not, agree or disagree! 🙂

Anyway, that’s all for now. Have a look around my site so far, and stay tuned for what is to come!

      Thank you for taking time to comment and for the good words, Lizz! 🙂

      I’m still nervous about blogging and putting my thoughts out there, but I guess that’s part of the crap I’m fighting against. Tonight all is good with me . . . and I’ll deal with what’s later once it arrives. 😉 Thank you for wanting to check back and read more!

    You are amazing!! You have a niche some would say you drew me right into your blog with your honesty. My partner in life is also BPD and my best friend we have three girls too. My oldest may also have BPD so its cool to see someone as young as you doing this gives me hope too.

      Thank you for the kind words, blondie! I’m glad you enjoyed what I wrote so far. If your partner has BPD and possibly your oldest, too, some of what I write might ring familiar to you. As far as hope is concerned, as my mom says: where there is life, there is hope. While I want to kick her for saying it when I’m feeling down, I still think overall it’s true. I want to live well (or at least better), so I work towards improvement. I wish all the best to you and your family. 🙂
