Loving someone with BPD traits (ft. my partner Zaz)
If you have BPD (EUPD) or are a loved one of someone who identifies with the symptoms and you’re losing hope, this episode is for you. People with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and complex trauma (CPTSD) often have tumultuous relationships, both romantic and platonic. One of the first results that appears when you Google “BPD relationships” is, “Why BPD relationships never work.” It can certainly feel that way, but I’m here to tell you: this doesn’t have to be your reality. In this episode, you'll witness my partner Zaz’s very first appearance on the podcast. We sit down and answer questions submitted by my lovely premium subscribers and Instagram followers.

■ Tips for dating someone with BPD
