Diane stays in the same PJs for days together and smokes at least three packs a day in this phase. Another sign of mental health issues that plague Diane throughout the series of ‘Bojack Horseman’ is her struggles with her self-identity. She is often mocked as a ‘nerd’ by even Bojack at many instances, and this hurts her. Just been ‘dumped’ by the BPD I’ve been seeing for the last six months.

Usually, I know when someone is bad news. I don’t know how to recover from this. I’m in therapy but nothing really seems to be helping. I met them in inpatient, we were both 17 at the time. Once I saw them I instantly had a crush on him, in the next couple days the feelings were mutual.
