    Emotionally connected?

    Wondering if this was the same for other BPD's, but do you feel your more emotionally intellectual then people without?

    I can't say much for other mental health issues as I have BPD. But I watch the world and see people do things I could not even dream of without the emotional consequences.

    Are others non suffered really ignorant to others feelings? I constantly think about what I do or say so I don't impact or hurt someone else. So it's crazy for me to see someone not care and not feel that dreaded guilt.

    I have a habit or rambling so if this does not make sense then I apologise. I think a lot and I find most people are not on my wave length

    Actually another question: as a BPD do you feel you think to deeply into life and things, almost obsess over things that even the best philosophers can't answer?

    I think you are expressing your concern about being very careful in how you might affect people emotionally. If this is the case then I think you can stop this by noticing other people and see how they react emotionally to different situations. After all everyone with functioning body parts will express emotions in one way or another. Sometimes it is very subtle and sometimes its for everyone to notice and consequences vary.

    Hi. I think like you alot. Sometimes I "think" too much and get myself into depression. And, I always want to help others and worry about ways that I can. we are not exactly alike, but, by what you described, you sound emotionally connected to me. You sound like a good person who cares.

    I completely relate to that. At times (or maybe too often) I feel rather inadequate around people. My heart beats fast when there is a party or a big gathering. I force myself to do social stuff. Luckly I have friends who respect me.
    The only people I feel comfortable with are children and well animals. They are straight forward. No hidden agendas. They are pure and honest. It is so easy to see if a kids in not telling the truth.
    Animal are awesome!

    Peace and love

    Re: Emotionally connected?

    I can relate to where you're coming from. I have Rapid Cycling BPD, and it is exhausting! Medications can only do so much, after that, it's all "head games," if you will. We are typically smart people, who look in depth at things, more so than other people at times. Struggling with ADD and paranoia is even crazier. But after several years, I have learned to live with myself and my thoughts. We aren't disadvantaged, but are instead empowered.
