Born on 15th February 1990 and raised in Bedfordshire, I was bullied severely while at school. Due to this I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, as well as anxiety, in 2015. For the next 5 years I struggled with the ups and downs.
My main peeve with the diagnosis was the large amount of negativity shown towards those who have this condition, particularly on forums and other social sites.
Because of this, I started planning Bordering Bears, as well as the concept of the Borderling, to show real-world documentation on living with this diagnosis.
Being a mother to Feena, born 11th October 2011 and girlfriend to Ash, anniversary 26th October 2018, this also enabled me to think of ideas on how I could also document these aspects of life, and how to maintain my mental health while also having these roles.
