“Borderline individuals are so completely in each mood, they have great difficulty conceptualizing, remembering what it’s like to be in another mood.”
“People with BPD are like people with third degree burns over 90% of their bodies. Lacking emotional skin, they feel agony at the slightest touch or movement.”
“Chronic feelings of emptiness or boredom. Someone with BPD said, ‘I remember describing the feeling of having a deep hole in my stomach. An emptiness that I didn’t know how to fill. My therapist told me that was from almost a ‘lack of a life.'”

Nothing in reality is so painful or destructive as hope.
