BPD… I’m Coming For You 😋

People thinking it’s “all in your head”. People thinking I’ve “chosen to be sick”. People thinking I’ve “made” myself sick.

I have borderline personality disorder. It’s not just a mental illness. It’s a neurological disorder like ADHD or autism. Sections of my brain are abnormally large and don’t process information in the way it should.

Why on earth would anyone “choose” to have it? It’s destructive, debilitating and highly stigmatised.

I’ve learnt to embrace the BPD, to co-exist with it, and not be held back by it. I’ve chosen to be open about it, honest about it, and not afraid of it. I did not “choose” to have it.
