From Borderline to Beautiful: Melanie's Story
Borderline Personality Disorder is no longer considered a chronic illness. You can lead a great life with a sensitive, intense, hyperbolic... or any temperament for that matter with hard work, grit, endurance, tenacity, and the willingness to get uncomfortable. In this episode, we welcome Melanie to the show! Melanie has climbed many rungs on her ladder of recovery and wanted to share her story. Melanie has worked hard at honest self reflection, integrity, self discipline, truth and humility. She continues to show up each week ready to learn and grow. Melanie embodies the idea of moving from borderline to beautiful. Strength through adversity can absolutely be achieved. If you question an individual's ability to recover, or if you are a clinician questioning whether you should disclose the diagnose to your clients and their respective loved ones, listen to Melanie's story. There is hope! Thank you, Mel.  This week there is a new ad on the show. My very close friend, Cara, is needing help to raise money for the Hermanus Christian Academy in Africa. Her father has been an integral part of this school as a volunteer for many years. Unfortunately, South Africa has a 35% unemployment rate, making daily living difficult for refugees. The school provides a safe haven for over 115 children from refugee families. 100% of donations will be received by the school and will go towards underpaid teachers, school curriculum, and the increasing utility bills. (The water bill has increased by 500% over the past month!) If you are looking for a cause to support, please consider donating to this academy.

BPD, Moral Discipline, Mountains, & Mildew: LJ is the MAN!
Borderline Personality Disorder is a complex diagnosis. People with BPD often lack the confidence to set goals and maintain consistency to achieve these goals. Moral discipline and character development are seldom at the forefront of recovery in clinical settings as the goal is often emotional stabilization and engaging in skills-based treatment modalities. In this episode, I talk about how moral discipline has to be the foundation of our recovery journey, using our son, LJ, as an example of this. I am so proud of you, LJ. I know that this podcast will be part of my legacy, and I want to honor you today. You are a strong, capable young man. You are becoming an honorable individual and I love watching you grow.

Recovery Stories: Interview with Sean Keyes
In this episode, I interview business owner, husband, and father, Sean Keyes. He shares how he recovered from Borderline Personality Disorder and how you can do it too. Join us as Sean digs deep into his personal growth journey. PLEASE NOTE: There is mention of therapy and coaching in this episode. Therapy is past focused and coaching is future focused. Once trauma has been resolved in appropriate empirically based therapy treatments, coaching can be helpful to many individuals as it is more straightforward & direct. Coaches walk side by side with clients to achieve recovery focused goals. Both therapy and coaching can be effective. I believe that spending too much time in the past doesn’t prepare you to live in the future and if you have two hands full of the past you won’t be able to reach out and grab hold of your future without BPD. ❤️

Intro Episode
From Borderline to Beautiful Podcast tackles tough topics and provides information and insight into borderline personality disorder. My goal is to provide a show that offers hope and help to you or your loved ones with BPD and to answer big questions that others in the field are too scared to answer.   The stigma around BPD is unjustified because there is a good prognosis. Let's break the stigma and learn ways to heal together. Rose Skeeters, a licensed therapist, nutrition and mindset coach, will share her story and strategies to overcome her own battle with BPD and Bulimia.  You are not alone and there IS hope for a better life. It may not be an easy path, but it is a path out of the darkness, into a good life.
