My Journey With Borderline Personality Disorder


Nicky Best

May is Borderline Personality Disorder awareness month, so I thought it fitting for me to share part of my Borderline story. So what exactly is, Borderline Personality Disorder? BPD is a serious yet widely misunderstood psychiatric disorder which very basically can be defined as an inability to properly and healthily regulate ones emotions.

I was unknowingly diagnosed with BPD in early 2016. I’m not quite sure as to why the psychiatrist diagnosing me failed to mention this new diagnoses to me. Personally, I find a huge lack of logic in this decision. Fortunately for me it was only a few months later that I was actually informed of my new diagnoses.

I was once again at the hospital waiting to be seen by the mental health department when the psychiatrist on duty ushered…

My “Did You Know?…” Cards Project


May is Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness Month in the United States.  I like to celebrate it here in Canada as well.  I’ve printed up some “Did You Know?…” cards and placed them around my local peer support centre.  People are welcome to come and ask me about them and I will share with them what I know, as someone in recovery who has done DBT, and researched it for the last five years for this blog, and for my group as well.  I’m going to announce about them tomorrow at the Centre, just in case people haven’t noticed them.  I really want people to notice them and ask me about them if they have any questions.  I’ll let you know how it works out.

I’ve also just gotten approval for my latest newsletter at the Centre.  This one has an article in it that’s a little more personal than other articles I’ve written for it.  I’ll see what people think of it when we get the final draft delivered to the Centre.  I’ve shown it to the staff and they really liked it.  It’s a little bit about my journey of being diagnosed, going to DBT, recovering, then writing this blog and running my group.

Hope your month is going well.  Till next time,

— Joyce.

Happy Mother’s Day!


I hope everyone’s had a great Mother’s Day today.  I know that some people have a very difficult time on this day, so I hope that for those of you who find if hard, that you had the best day possible.  My thoughts are with all of you.

I had a good day today.  I visited family and paid my respects to some family members who have passed away.  I also received a very lovely card.  It was a pretty relaxing day.

Till next time,
