A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

What I Like About Me!!!

I know that it has been kind of gloomy around these parts lately.  I also want to share some happier things.  My therapist and I talk about how it is easier to increase a behavior instead of reducing a behavior.  So, at the end, of a session where we were talking about my feeling empty, which is a classic borderline symptom, he asked what can you do to fill that up.  Well, I came up with a good list of other things, mostly to stop my feelings or distract me.  Then, he asked, "what do you like about yourself."  I came up with some, but it kept in my mind and this is my Wordle as a result:
