I live with borderline personality disorder (BPD), bipolar I disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
Mental illness hit hard and fast. From age 13, it knocked me off balance. Yet besides pain and disorientation, it has brought me self-insight and acceptance, friendships and a deeper appreciation for those closest to me.
Here I write about the hard blows and the occasional soft landings.
