“I was always just so confused all the time.”
For Pete Davidson, being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder was a relief. In fact, he told Glenn Close for Variety’s Actors on Actors series that the moment felt like a huge weight was “lifted off [his] shoulders.”
“I got diagnosed with BPD a few years ago, and I was always just so confused all the time, and just thought something was wrong and didn’t know how to deal with it,” Davidson said.
“Then, when somebody finally tells you, the weight of the world feels lifted off your shoulders. You feel so much better,” he continued.
In 2017, Davidson revealed he had BPD after he spent years battling depression and anxiety.
Although he has previously revealed that he’s contemplated suicide, Davidson said that’s not an option because there are so many people who love him and want him to live.
Back in 2017, when he was diagnosed with BPD, Davidson talked about how therapy has been helping, while in conversation with Marc Maron. “It is working, slowly but surely,” he said, adding “I’ve been having a lot of problems. This whole year has been a fucking nightmare. This has been the worst year of my life, getting diagnosed with this and trying to figure out how to learn with this and live with this.”
