Walk a Mile in My Shoes

By Chris Young
Imagine a man walking around the edge of the U.K. with no money, relying purely on the kindness and generosity of the people he meets to help him on his way. Imagine that man has Borderline Personality Disorder - a severe and enduring mental health problem. Imagine this is Brexit Britain where hate crimes of all types have increased. That man is me, and these are the fabulous people I’ll be meeting to show that love and compassion are alive and well in our lovely country.

So, I Married a Borderline!
In this Episode I speak with Ella about what it’s like to be married to someone with Borderline Personality Disorder - er me - the ups and downs and some of the trials and tribulations - hopefully we manage to fly in the face of much of the #Manipulative #AttentionSeeking rhetoric around BPD. Enjoy.
