Hi everyone! Just wanted to share my story... I grew up in care from a young age and my family disowned me when I was 19 pregnant with my son because they are strict Muslims and I didn't agree to living my life that way. By this point my mental health was deteriorating fast and i was sectioned and diagnosed with borderline personality disorder at 19. Since then my life has been so up and down. My sons father took me to court in 2015 saying i can't cope with my mental health. My son lives with his dad now and I see him weekends and half the holidays. I struggle with the pain of this everyday of my life. I miss him all the time and feel so depressed because of this and so many other things that have happened to me in the past.
Also two years ago I started hearing voices and hallucinating. Ever since I've been trying to get my diagnosis changed and now i finally have an appointment next Monday for a second opinion. I believe I used to have bpd and now have psychosis but my psychiatrist doesn't listen to me. I had to make a complaint to get a second opinion. I'm feeling very anxious about this appointment as you can imagine. But fingers crossed I get a good outcome. Sorry for the long essay I have so much to say!
