TW: Discussion suicide and self-harm.

Despite an ever-growing awareness about Borderline Personality Disorder, the average person still knows so little about it. If you, or someone in your life, have questions about BPD but aren’t sure how to ask them or who to reach out to, you’re not alone. Simon Doherty of Vice recently sat down and spoke with Jodie, a 27-year-old actress from London, who was diagnosed with BPD in August of 2017.

Jodie provides answers from a lived experience that continue to help illuminate what day-to-day life is like with BPD.
