That's So Chronic
Dearna Doglione & Borderline Personality Disorder
Hi! Welcome to That’s So Chronic! Today I sat down with a cup of tea to chat to Dearna Doglione all about borderline personality disorder.
Content warning: this episode talks about mental health and suicidal thoughts.
In today’s episode Dearna shares the journey it took for her to get a diagnosis, she explains what her symptoms look like, the importance of having a good GP, and she leaves us with a message of hope that everything will be okay… Which we learn is something she didn’t always believe.
I feel truly honoured that Dearna trusted me and That’s So Chronic to share her story. Dearna and I had a conversation after she listened to Morgan’s episode about coeliac disease, and she wondered why we couldn’t talk about mental health in the same way… I then got another message from her saying that maybe she could help change that, and that she was ready to share her story.
If this episode brings anything up for you please remember you can always free text or call 1737 here in New Zealand to talk to a trained counsellor at any time.
If you want to reach out, feel free to message me on instagram @thatssochronic and don't forget to subscribe, follow, rate and review! That truly helps me get into more ears around the world to hopefully spread awareness... and more importantly, hope.
