I have Borderline Personality Disorder
With approximately 1.6% of the population facing the challenges of living with BPD, I find myself feeling not quite so alone in the fact that I suffer, and have caused great suffering because of my illness.
Every day is a challenge. I have destroyed relationships, felt completely alone and have been an emotional wreak for most of my adult life…that is until my diagnosis in 2016. While I can not fix everything that I have broken in my past, I have begun a journey of not just self discovery but also one of healing. The emptiness that I feel and my inability to fill that feeling have lead me down some very dark paths, but now with the light of a spiritual guide, the help of a great therapist and some genuinely supportive people in my life, I for the first time can see some light at the end of the tunnel.
