Trivia: The Ides of March is the 74th day in the Roman calendar that corresponds to 15 March. It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts. In 44 BC, it became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar which made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

I can totally relate to that aspect of enjoying interacting with strangers. I prefer getting a smile or a hello from a stranger than having to have a conversation with a friend. Ive just been diagnosed with bpd actually at 47 It's nice to know there are others like me!

Omg I've just started listening to this and you are describing me! I'm 47 and seeing a shrink tomorrow for the first time properly ever. I feel about 100 now and so tired of life. It's exhausting. So good to listen to you on this xx

Okay, a few minutes in on the first podcast and I genuinely can say that I have never related so much to someone.
