I was recently diagnosed with BPD and this blog is my way of working that out. Hopefully nothing I write will be too distressing to read, but I shall dutifully slap a trigger warning right here. I’m grappling with a lot of different avenues – depression, anxiety, eating disordered symptoms, paranoia, substance use troubles, trauma history, family stuff. There’s a lot of work to be done. But I’ll be looking at the good stuff too. And the complicated bittersweet stuff. I try to keep things light, and find it much more enjoyable for everyone involved (writer and reader/s) not to dwell too long in the darkness.
Musical theatre helps. Writing helps. Friends help. Lots of things will probably pop up. This is going to be a long ride.
