Borderline personality disorder is a very difficult illness to live with. Its also a very difficult illness to explain to others.
If you have borderline personality disorder and want to explain it to others, or if you don’t have it but want to learn more about it, you might find this video helpful.
I know that I identify with this video a lot.
If you do have borderline personality, you may find it very helpful to share the video with others, to allow them to understand a little.
I also love that a mnemonic for BPD is PRAISE (given my previous praise you posts):
P – paranoid ideas
R – relationship instability
A – angry outbursts, affective instability, abandonment fears
I – impulsive behavior, identity disturbance
S – suicidal behavior
E – emptiness
I hope these both help explain BPD a little for you.
