Terrified to talk openly about BPD

Updated: May 11, 2019

I don't want to feel like I'm living a lie but, at the same time, I don't want to be that person who is overbearing. I don't know how to be live honestly without overwhelming those around me.

But in order to over starting overcome my huge sense of shame, I need to uncover my mental health issues.

If I rationally know that there's nothing wrong with having mental health issues, then why do I hide it?

If I want to combat stigma, I need to be open...yet I am so conflicted about being open.

It's like I am tying my own tongue in a knot at the same time as wanting to stick it out of my mouth.
