I was diagnosed with EUPD about 6 years ago and for 4 years on long term sick.
I am originally from Newcastle/Gateshead in the UK. But currently live in Hartlepool.
As much as I loved living where I was brought up it came with so much baggage and trauma that when I moved I revelled in the fresh start where barely anyone knew me except family.
Don’t get me wrong its hard. While I have family here, I don’t have many friends so I do find myself a lot of the time isolated when family are busy with other things.
This is part of the reason I’ve started this blog. To not only get my feelings out in a productive way, (instead of punching a wall lol), but to put a voice to the stigma of mental health with men. Especially those diagnosed with EUPD as it is generally seen as a female disorder or that we are all violent and manipulative as seen on TV. Which isn’t the case most of the time.
