Over the years I have become more comfortable with talking about my mental health, specifically my anxiety. It’s something more relatable. Everyone has experienced anxiety about an exam, or moving house, or a job interview. It’s easier to explain that Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is an intensified version of that, where everything is seen as a threat and therefore anxiety inducing.
But how do you explain Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) to someone?
If I’m honest, I still don’t know.
