About Me

Hi, I’m Mrs TeePot. I’m mostly vegan, I love yoga, I prattle on about self love and self care on the regular, I prefer animals to humans, my main hobby is dog agility, I work for myself, drink decaf hipster coffees and I have borderline personality disorder*.

I started this blog over a decade ago because writing has always been how I process things and express myself. It began as a diary which quickly evolved into a written version of my mental health crises and breakdowns. Recently it has become a place for me to document my recovery, share my thoughts on the stigma and reality of mental illness and to, hopefully, offer other people with BPD the hope that I never had.

I’m a lifestyle blogger so I write about a wide variety of topics including travel, dating, current affairs, diet and expat life and how my mental illness affects all of it.

I do not and will not promote any one therapy, solution or theory. I believe that we all must find what works for us and support each other in doing just that. My recovery will not look like your recovery because there is no one way to build a life with BPD.

*BPD is also known as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder, and by several other names depending on your geographical location or the circles you run in. It is a highly stigmatised and misunderstood diagnosis, even among mental health professionals.     

I love reading but I suck at it (thank you mental illness) so if I’ve read something that proves it’s amazing

Mrs TeePot’s books

Girl Mans Up
it was amazing
I loved everything about this book. It’s such an honest look at teenage life with the added bonus of the lead character being a butch lesbian.
It covers really serious topics [spoilers removed] and also the struggles that can come with i…
BLANK: A Novel Abstraction
it was amazing
Such a raw and moving book exploring mental illness, trauma, growing up, finding oneself, learning to live and so much more. The descriptions of emotions and experiences were both beautiful and heartrending. The artistic use of words and…
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
it was amazing
Fabulous book, and one I know I will be re-reading several times while the messages in it really sink in.
Interesting and accurate thoughts on life, our flaws as humans, and how to live a better, happier life.
I nodded along all the way …
Dark Citadel
really liked it
A great, kinky, easy read with a warm and lovable lead male character and a realistic, relatable submissive woman. I found all the characters engaging and felt like I was really in the club.
The story is engaging and left me warm and fuz…

    I’ve always believed that writers can only really connect with an audience by being honest & open. Well, you go a lot further than most and I think that’s hugely admirable. In fact, it more than makes up for the fact that you live in France & Spain – which makes me jealous to a wholly irrational degree…

      Thank you so much. I do ‘put it all out there’ so to speak, and while it’s risky I do think it’s worth it. I wouldn’t find the therapy I do in writing if I had to censor myself.

    We have much in common, mental health-wise. I’m on the borderline, too.
