Welcome to I’m NOT
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…
Aimee Wilson, I’m 30, and I live in the North East of England.
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.
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.
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.
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.
