Day 11: What is the worst thing in regard to your mental illness(es)?
While I love having the opportunity to explain BPD for myself, it does become exhausting because BPD is not something you can sum up in a few words. Being unfamiliar with it probably also makes it scary for the listener when I talk about having rage, impulse and perception problems. On the opposite side, the people who know everything in the wrong way, assume the worst about me and have no problem going out of their way to make sure I (and all those with BPD) know that I am the scum of the Earth.
So, to summarize. What is the worst thing in regard to my mental health issue?
THE STIGMA AND DISCRIMINATION!!!
