Publisher's Summary

Note: This interview contains discussion of suicidal thoughts.

Joining us at Audible Studios is actor, TV presenter and comedian, Joe Tracini.

Known for his roles in Coming Of Age and Hollyoaks, as well as regularly appearing in pantomimes across the country, Tracini is well loved by many. When Coronavirus and lockdown hit, Tracini began making videos documenting his journey with Borderline Personality Disorder. Using comedy to portray the difficulties he suffers has enabled him to reach a wide audience with his message. And the main issue he addressed? How to not kill himself. Suicidal thoughts are something Tracini lives with every day, and so, on to the next way of ensuring he stays alive: write a book about it!

We’ll be chatting with Joe Tracini about the stigma connected to mental illness, how he deals with his suicidal thoughts, and how writing his book, Ten Things I Hate About Me, has helped.

Thank you, Joe

I’ve been waiting in anticipation for Joe’s book to come out and listening to this interview has just confirmed that it’s going to be just what I need. I was diagnosed with EUPD (the same strain of BPD as Joe has) and I’ve found his explanation of things has really helped me explain it to others and show them how I’m feeling. I wish he could see and understand how much he helps people to not die and that that, in turn, helps him to not die, too.
