My BPD Mollusc
In 2017, I was misdiagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. I was told that I have disproportionate emotional responses. Consequently, that set me off and I began to question my entire existence – everything that has ever happened to me.
Was it me? Or was it the BPD? I began to think of the BPD as an alien mollusc that that latched on to me.
For two laborious years, I tried to accept it as a part of me. Eventually, I succeeded and I had infact grown fond of my alien mollusc.
In mid-2019, I was told that I never had BPD. However, I think the mollusc still holds for the parts of you that you refuse to accept.
