Avoiding the Emptiness Within

Laurie and Sara discuss the borderline personality disorder (BPD) symptom of chronic feelings of emptiness. Neither of them experience this symptom as a significant piece of their lives but they theorize that perhaps some of their obsession with success and keeping busy is to avoid feeling empty. The conversation goes from healthy grounding techniques like movement to discussing obsessive compulsive disorder and obsessive compulsive personality. You can find Laurie and Sara on Instagram to follow their day to day lives even further @laurieanned and @saraswellnessway.
