“People with BPD are like people with third degree burns over 90% of their bodies. Lacking emotional skin, they feel agony at the slightest touch or movement.”

I wanted to create a personal series based upon what it’s like to live with Borderline Personality Disorder.

1.6% of adults in the United States have Borderline Personality Disorder and it is something that I’ve struggled with heavily for most of my life. It is a huge part of my life and will continue to be for the rest of my life. You can read more about the condition here:

A big thanks to poor Rob who let me cover his body with Elmer’s glue.
