I’m Coming Out So You Better Get This Party Started
Mar 21, 2021 Season 1 Episode 17
Sara Amundson & Laurie Edmundson

Sara and Laurie discuss their experiences coming out with their borderline personality disorder (BPD) diagnosis to family, friends, fellow psychology students, and colleagues.

Sara talks about the process of coming out as queer and how it relates to experiences “coming out” with a mental illness like BPD. 

Laurie shares how coming out has helped her and others around her to really understand why she is feeling and behaving the way she does which can really help with recovery and building a support system. 

Long story short: “If you don’t want to deal with me because I’m me, then I don’t want to deal with you” - Laurie

Trigger warning: suicide
