my life with borderline personality disorder
My name's Rosie Cappuccino and I'm a blogger and author of Talking About BPD: A Stigma-Free Guide to a Calmer and Happier Life with Borderline Personality Disorder.
As you may know all too well, BPD is one of the most stigmatised mental health conditions. Too often people with this diagnosis are silenced, stereotyped, discriminated against and excluded. As a result, people with BPD end up feeling ashamed, isolated, unsupported and unlovable. It's not okay and this has to change.
I share my life with BPD, and everything I've learnt over the years through my blog, book, YouTube channel, writing for magazines and more. My intention is to make people with this diagnosis feel seen, valued and less alone, as well as to give a little hope about the future.
'I am Rosie. I have BPD. I'm not an attention seeker, manipulative, dangerous, hopeless, unlovable, 'broken', 'difficult to reach' or 'unwilling to engage'. I am caring, creative courageous, determined, full of life and love.' Talking About BPD is a positive, stigma-free guide to life with this condition. It combines my experiences of living with BPD and DBT-based coping tips for living a calmer and happier life.
Talking About BPD: A Stigma-Free Guide to a Calmer, Happier Life with Borderline Personality Disorder, is available worldwide now from Amazon, other major booksellers or direct from the publisher JKP. It's available in paperback, e-book and audiobook (read by me!).
