What Happens When Your Dream Seems to Die?
In September of 2008, More Than Borderline's, Becky Oberg, was in a state-run psychiatric hospital. As she reflected on her life, she wondered if her journalism career was over. After all, she'd failed to find a job and had been fired from her dream job for having a dissociative episode while on the clock. It did indeed seem her career was over due to the stigma against mental illnesses such as borderline personality disorder (BPD).
But she was wrong. Her speculating that her career was over was just the illness lying to her. After her discharge, she landed not one but two journalism-related jobs. And more importantly, she was happy--even if things didn't turn out the way she'd planned.
Becky shares her story as to what happened after she thought her dream had died because of BPD.
