Who is Patricia?
As some of you may know from watching M. Night Shyamalan’s 2016 movie ‘Split’ (or the copious amount of memes that followed…), Patricia is one of Kevin’s ~23 personalities.
Kevin has Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).
I have Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), also known as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder. Just out of personal preference I’ll be going with BPD.
That was Patricia (this site) came from me and my partner attempting to take the heat off a few hairy situations at home when I couldn’t remember what I’d done – total blank space in the memory – and kind of progressed to my worst moments in general.
Rather than my worst moments ruining everything.
Which you’ll come to learn more about. (Lucky you).
So essentially I’m just throwing in a quick disclaimer before we begin – I’m not drawing comparisons between DID and BPD.
What I will be talking about is, first off, my diagnoses – BPD, anxiety, and depression. I will also be covering my head meds and my experiences with those. Probably a little bit about my background in a kinda vague way because being anonymous. What else… my symptoms and a just generally whatever else crops up at the time.
I will try and keep things regular but we will have to wait and see what my mind brings us!
Anyway, I always appreciate feedback, there are comment boxes on every page and you can contact me too so feel free to let me know how I’m doing!
