I have been arming myself with knowledge and information about ADHD and borderline personality disorder, taking in the things that directly pertain to me. I will always strive to end stigma. “Rejection Spirals & The Beautiful Moon” is a powerful post, and I really had to give myself a hat on the back for added vulnerability.


I wrote the poem “I Can See You Better With My Legs Closed” because I struggle with boundaries in many areas of my life. Love and intimacy are not exempt from this challenge. https://jusjesspoetry.org/2023/06/20/better-with-my-legs-closed/
