    Mystery guest speaker (my boyfriend) shares his perspective on the trial between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, in which it has emerged that Heard has both Histrionic Personality Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), from the perspective of someone who has BPD.


    N.B. TRIGGER WARNINGS:

    Contains discussions about: 


    Personality disorders and mental health issues, including cPTSD. If this triggers you, DO NOT LISTEN.

    Neither of us is a therapist, so this is just experience and opinion. If you need a therapist, you can find plenty of fully qualified therapists through this link. You will get 1 week of free therapy if you use this link. 

    Adult subjects and adult humour. 18+ episode. Do not listen if offended by strong language or discussion of adult themes.

    My romantic life and mental health. If we're related and that freaks you out, clearly do not listen. Seriously. Just bimble along with your day. This isn't for you. Also, we are talking about things that currently work for us. This does not mean they will always work, or that any of this is easy. It is a snapshot of where we are in our relationship right now. What you apply to your own relationship or mental health is entirely your decision, and we are providing this discussion for informational purposes only. Neither of us considers ourselves the fully risen cupcake.

    Addiction, including heroin, alcohol, sex/pornography, etc. IMPORTANT: This includes talking about how addictions feel good. If you're early in recovery, this may not be for you. Make a well reasoned decision. If hearing the raw, real, and honest discussion will help you, that's fine, but if it will trigger you to want to indulge in an addiction, leave this for now.

    Aggression and abusive behaviour associated with BPD, NPD, and other disorders.

    Is It Bring Your Trauma To Work Day?

    Is It Bring Your Trauma To Work Day?

    Do you bring trauma to your work, without meaning to do so?

    Life since 2020 has been traumatising for everyone, but we all bring our own flavour of trauma coping to every day, regardless of whether it's a Big News Day or a Tuesday. So, let's talk about it.

    N.B: I am not a therapist (see link above for those). I'm not diagnosing anything. It is your responsibility to find out more about your own mental health, and I am not attempting to treat any condition you may have. This is just a place to start thinking.



    TRIGGER WARNING: Episode deals with different trauma responses. If you're not ready to consider trauma you may have experienced, this may not be the podcast for you.

    Is It BDE or BPD That Makes Pete Davidson Irresistible To Women?

    Is It BDE or BPD That Makes Pete Davidson Irresistible To Women?

    N.B. This episode discusses BDE, but in a 15+ kinda way, not an 18+ kinda way, so if table legs or eggplants/aubergines give you a fainting spell, skip it. If, however, you live in 2021+ you've seen worse on twitter.


    Pete Davidson's BDE: Is it about inches or something else?

    Pete Davidson's BPD: What it is, how it's helping him attract women, and why you need to be aware of the red flags of BPD when someone charms you

    My experience with BPD: How a guy with BPD swept me off my feet, and how we both could have handled the situation better in hindsight

    The secret gifts of BPD, and the really bad stuff too

    I'm not a therapist. See resources for one of those. This is based on my experience with people with personality disorders, as someone who's coached very many, and dated more than a few. 

    TRIGGERS: Personality disorders, relationship and intimacy issues, abuse, self harm, suicidal ideation, trauma responses

    How To Handle Psychological Clusters of Bees

    How To Handle Psychological Clusters of Bees

    If you've struggled with someone close to you having a Cluster B personality disorder (or if you've struggled with traits like these yourself) this theory could help you to understand better what is happening. 



    For more training like this, go to my blog: Like A Bardess.



    You can also go back over my podcast episodes and learn more about narcissism in particular.



    If you're looking for a coach (business, creativity, mindset, or spirituality) you can book a free taster session with me by clicking the orange button at the bottom of this page and clicking the calendar. Pick a slot, and please show up on time. Ghosters will not be rescheduled. Please note that I am not a therapist. I'm a coach. More info available on my site. For info on therapists, see 'Trigger Warnings and Disclaimers'.



    TRIGGER WARNINGS AND DISCLAIMERS

    I am neither a therapist nor a doctor. This is not a replacement for a qualified therapist. If you need one, these people are great and there are many therapists there who specialise in Cluster B disorders, as well as help with cPTSD etc from abuse by people with these kinds of personalities: 




    Therapists: If you go through that link, you'll get an extra week for free. 



    There are many trigger warnings at the start of this podcast. Listen to them and decide whether or not to continue listening. You are an adult. You can leave any time you get triggered. If you think you may be in danger if you get triggered then do not listen. 




    Recommended app: Finch. This is helpful both for people with these conditions and for people recovering from narcissistic abuse. Again, in my opinion. This is not a therapist or doctor's opinion. This is the opinion of a random Brit on the internet.

    Gabby Petito and Narcissistic Abuse

    Gabby Petito and Narcissistic Abuse

    My thoughts on the Gabby Petito case, why it's captured the attention of the public, what it tells us about domestic and narcissistic abuse, how reactive abuse shows up, and what we can learn from it to help heal wounds in society.

    TRIGGER WARNING: Discusses the abuse and death of Gabby Petito, its impact on the public, issues involving sexism and racism, and narcissistic and domestic abuse.

    RESOURCES

    If you are, or have been, affected by these issues here are some resources:


    Helplines for domestic abuse
    Therapy (confidential, can do it on an app on your phone)
    I've personally found the Rootd app helpful for cPTSD/trauma related panic attacks. It's free

    If you've been through a difficult time or a breakup, or are going through recovery from a bad habit or dependency, and you are ready for a fresh start, this free book may help: You Deserve A Fresh Start
    If you've found yourself isolated through the pandemic, or have become isolated through a breakup, and are struggling with working from home, this free book is useful: Work From Home Without Feeling Alone
    If you are interested in learning more about healthy masculinity and femininity, you might find my course Mystery & Mastery useful. It takes a spiritual approach, so may not be a fit if you're not on a spiritual path. And it speaks specifically about masculine and feminine energy, which may not work for you if you're non-binary. But if you can bring an open mind to it, it's pretty powerful.

    If you've struggled with feeling th;at you may be a bit narcissistic (if it's problematic, use the therapy link above) this is the podcast I mentioned where I talk about that If All Narcissists Are Monsters, How Come All Superheroes Are Narcissists? That links to the podcast on my site. You can also just search for that in whichever podcast provider you use. Being a bit extra is a world away from being a danger to society, but it's wise to bring those traits in check young so that you can use your powers for good, not evil. Let's work on making sure nobody, including you, gets hurt.
