About


Welcome to I’m NOT Disordered!

As is common with blog’s these days, there’s become a need to feature an ‘about’ page for basic information about the blog and the person behind the content…

I’m Aimee Wilson, I’m 30, and I live in the North East of England.

When I was younger, I experienced a trauma. That I disassociated during it, meant that I developed auditory hallucinations and after experiencing them for ten days, I made my first suicide attempt in 2009. A few months later, I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder.

Over the following three years, my records show that I was hospitalised over sixty times. Then, in 2012, another suicide attempt left me detained under the 2005 Mental Capacity Act and in a coma on life support in Intensive Care. 

When I was woken, I was admitted to a psychiatric hospital over 100 miles away from home that specialised in Personality Disorders. After almost a year on the ward – on January 6th 2013, I created I’m NOT Disordered as a means to better explain my experiences to my family and friends.

Since then, I’ve collaborated with so many charities, companies, organisations, and well-known individuals. I’ve featured on the news, the radio, the social media of popular accounts, a documentary, then in newspapers, and a magazine.

In additions to my work on content for I’m NOT Disordered, I currently have a voluntary role as Chair of a support group for the unwaged; LEAPS and a staff position with St Oswald’s Hospice as Kickstart Project Co-ordinator.
