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.
