This is supposed to be my anonymous blog so I can’t give the game away too much! I’ll give you a bit of context though. I’m in my early 20s, female, in the UK, and I have a diagnosis of BPD. It’s been a really tough few years. I’ve gone from having everything, being at uni, outgoing, confident, to… well the total opposite.

I’m about to embark on a long-awaited course of DBT. And now that my time has come, I’m shitting it. I will be writing about the past, present and future here, my way of organising my thoughts, and I hope somebody else benefits from it too. If you’re feeling vulnerable, look out for content warnings before the start of the piece because I know how triggering certain topics can be.
