I have borderline personality disorder, which means that I have a constant feeling of emptiness inside.

In 2009, I decided to end it all. But I was lucky to have my family, and my doctor helped me see a psychiatrist. It wasn’t easy. But to be honest, I’m really glad I got through it.

To you watching this video, I can tell you there will always be clouds and storms. Life goes in cycles. I swear it will pass. You’re unique and extraordinary. Thank you for being here.
