WTF is BPD? This look at BPD from someone recovering from Borderline Personality Disorder doesn’t pull any punches. Strong Language Warning!
Few emotional disorders (and BPD is a disorder, not a disease) have a stigma so down-and-dirty-awful as Borderline Personality Disorder. No matter how much comfort is offered (Princess Diana had it!), the mental image mostly swings toward Fatal Attraction. Wrist slitting, obsessive stalking, a little touch of bunny boiling: these are the hallmarks of BPD, according to people without BPD. Since this seems acceptable, let me add that as non-diabetic, I know for a FACT that people with diabetes clearly deserve to suffer because all of them brought it upon themselves. I’m onto you, diabetics. I was borderline, and therefore I know everything.
So! Step right up, ladies and gentlemen! If there’s one thing I do know about, it’s Borderline Personality Disorder! Why, I’m practically a walking Wikipedia of psychological bullshit. Please, do allow me to translate the medical jargon into English for you. Keep reading or I’ll kill your rabbit.
