this project is THE MOST vulnerable thing i have ever done.
when i wrote the first episode, there were only a couple of people in my life that even knew i had borderline personality disorder. and through the writing of this and the sharing it and with the support of this cast and crew, i have been coming to terms with myself more and more every day. i’ve gone from someone that never even felt comfortable talking about my diagnosis to someone who wears it proudly. .
i’ve gone from a girl that was absolutely terrified to go to therapy to someone for whom mental illness is kind of a calling card. i lead with it, because i have to. because that’s what my art is about, right now. i can’t tell people about this series without explaining to them what it is, and what it is is inherently personal, and incredibly vulnerable. .
i know i've said it so many times, but I FEEL SO LUCKY TO HAVE GOTTEN TO MAKE THIS. i feel so lucky that the timing worked out, and the story, and the people. i feel the most lucky that it was the loveliest, smoothest, most uncomplicated process, and that even though there were so many moments when it felt like it would never get done, i never for a second stopped having fun working on it, and i don’t plan to. .
some of you may know i’ve already written a second season, and i fully intend to get it made. it may not work out as seamlessly as this one did, and it may not be as easy, but i am not done with this story or these people and they’re not done with me. i have never cared about something so much, and it it feels like my purpose right now to make sure people experience this story.
link in my bio so you can experience it too.

thank you all for your support. this isn’t the end. - 3 minutes ago
