24 thoughts on “Borderline Personality Disorder

  1. Must say Arjun your theme is something I loved as I think we dont speak enough of depression, there is so much stigma associated with it. BPD surely seems tough to handle in fact I have seen many people get into violent mood swings, now makes me wonder if they have really bothered to diagnose that something needs medical help

    1. Thank you Akshata. The problem with BPD is that doctors can only diagnose the problem or help manage it. There are no medications available. The ones that exist right now aren’t proven to have any long lasting effect. It really is a hard disorder to cope with.

    1. Thank you Sudha. There is some issue with my app right now. I’ll make sure to go through your post when I get back home. ☺️

  2. This is a brilliant theme, Mental Health is quite a sensitive topic for masses and today this needs to be probed and should be created awareness about. Had no clue about BPD, learnt a new thing today. Thank You 🙂

    1. You’re welcome ☺️. Over the course of this month I hope you learn more things and aspects of mental health.

    1. Thankyou so much for the appreciation. I too think that mental health is a topic we should all talk about freely and pay a lot of importantance to.

  3. this article made me realise how different a person can be due to disorder but we are not able to recognise it,rather sometimes we hurt the sufferer. thank you for this article.

  4. I said this yesterday and I am going to repeat this until we arrive at Z. We don’t speak about mental health enough and I really appreciate your initiative to bring it up just like any other health issues.

    1. Thankyou very much. I have the same views as yours and really do respect the fact that others too think the same way.

  5. What a dreadful disease…fighting self and then punishing self. My heart goes out to all those who might be fighting this inside demon. Wish there is some cure…some day in future may be.

    1. It is very hard to face I completely agree. The thing about mental illnesses is that it is a lot harder to cure than any other physical illness. It is time consuming and one needs to put loads of effort into it. Thankyou so much for supporting us in this.

  6. I wonder if its really easy to be diagnosed as some of the symptoms are really common. The kind of stigma attached to mental illnesses in our country do make it difficult. I am sure BPD is very common among people around us.

    1. It is very important that we avoid self diagnosis and trust professionals with this. Self diagnosis is often accurate but seldom reliable. I will actually write about that this month as well.

    1. We often have traits, Moderate or severe traits, but they are not always disorders. It is the job of the professional to determine which one it is.

  7. This is a dreadful situation, wanting human connections but then rejecting them. I cannot imagine how a person goes through their daily life. Hope more people learn about BPD and be sensitive to others suffering from BPD.

    1. It is indeed. It will take time for people to be aware about it. At the same time, we would have to make sure that people don’t diagnose themselves. We should trust rhe professionals with that.

  8. My daughter is in her first year of college and is being evaluated for BPD. It has been tough since middle school for but finally a potential answer. I’m hoping I can learn from you by following.
    Thanks for sharing!!
