**New episodes every other Sunday**
*Trigger warning: some episodes we discuss drugs/self-harm/sexual trauma, ect.*
AJ shares his experiences with BPD, anxiety, and depression along with his husband Cris. Together they discuss their relationship's special challenges, mental health issues, and their lives as introverts.
Our goal is to share personal struggles and different mental health journeys. We are not mental health professionals and have no mental health qualifications but our own experiences. We're just two introverts in love dealing with life.♥️
