ok, cupid?

i've been disassociating for about 2 weeks straight, which has really impeded on my studies. I took a Vyvanse today to see if that would help, and so far it's working.  anyways, so I joined OkCupid on a whim because a friend mentioned it casually in conversation. it's very LGBT friendly! moreso than I thought it would be.

ugh

nothing has been improving so far.   i'm so tired of trying to do the right thing, like communicate my needs to people, only to be shut down and dismissed. i'm so tired of feeling like my very existence is hurting the people i love. i'm just so tired.

Intro

I figure I should introduce myself. I'm Alicja. I developed borderline personality disorder due to abuse I endured as a child. I've been in a relationship for seven months, and it's been a strain on both of us, due to my intense mood swings and fear of abandonment. It really fucking sucks, because when it comes to him, I have no object permanence. When he's not near me, I think he doesn't love me anymore. We got into a fight today about it, and he's getting further and further away from me. I'm

      Type 3B hair ... I just had my BF chop it to chin length, shortest I've ever gone. I'm hoping it just explodes to an Irish afro. It took me decades to learn how to embrace it.
