Before we explore the photo series of Grace Hall, a writer and sufferer of Borderline Personality Disorder [BPD], and for the benefit of those with little or no knowledge about the disorder; allow me to write a bit on what BPD is all about.
According to the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, updated to the American Psychiatric Association’s classification and diagnostic tool in 2013:
A pervasive pattern of instability of interpersonal relationships, self-image, and affects, and marked impulsivity, beginning in early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts.
People with borderline personality disorder have abrupt and extreme mood changes, that make them unstable in several areas, including interpersonal relationships, behavior, mood, and self-image.
Grace shared her photo series with illustrations further detailing what it feels like to live with borderline personality disorder. (Click on the image to enlarge.)
