I wrote this poem in response to reading an article about how "Therapists don't like people with BPD". It pulled quite a few heartstrings, and made me fear that stigma is not only with people that are unaware of mental health conditions, but also those who treat it. It triggered a great deal of fear for me, personally. The poem is meant to highlight that everybody is individual, and the fact that articles like this exist is very, very scary.
