Trigger warning: Talk of suicide.
My name is Erin, I’m 37 years old. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder II when I was 29 and then with Borderline Personality Disorder when I was 31. I’ve attempted suicide 4 times, 2 of which landed me in the ICU. The last time my doc wasn’t sure if I’d caused myself permanent brain damage. That was in 2010. I have since completed my first Master’s degree, gotten married for the 3rd time, advanced in my job as an instructional designer at a highly respected university, and started a second Master’s degree.
I am way more that my diagnoses.
