Brettina Has BPD

Our language surrounding mental illness has evolved a lot over the past couple of decades … to a point. There are still some mental illnesses that exist outside of the bounds of most people’s understanding and compassion, that are not so easily accepted and are really scary to people who don’t have them. Illnesses that make the person seem “crazy,” where people might not want to associate themselves with you. Today’s guest -- Brettina -- has one of those.


“Why Borderline Personality Disorder is Misdiagnosed” from NAMI 

Building a Life Worth Living by Marsha Linehan
