Hi, I’m Rosie. I’m nineteen years old, I study BA English at the University of Nottingham, and I suffer from among other things, emotionally unstable personality disorder. This blog will hopefully be a way for me to reach out to other people about an illness that carries an enormous amount of stigma.
Although I was diagnosed with a personality disorder only a year ago, I have been in mental health services for a long time and have spent over a year of my life in total on section in psychiatric hospital. However, I’m not an illness. I’m a person. A daughter, a sister, a friend, a student. And I will continue to fight against this illness for the rest of my life.
