Hi all,

I've been trying to do some more research on BPD (I have a bit of an obsessive need to understand it better).

All the sites I've found online so far go on and on about how 'cruel' 'manipulative' 'hopeless' and or/ 'aggressive' people with BPD are.

That and just how high the self harm and suicide stats are for people with this diagnosis. *helpful ::) *

I'm not looking for a rose tinted view, just a more balanced one.

Anyone know of any good sites/books/resources?
Thank you all so much for your support, I really appreciate it.
Please, all keep as safe as you can.

I will be thinking of you xxxxx :hug1: :hug

When you feel like letting go, hold on.

Courage does not always roar.
Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow".

A close friend of mine has BPD she has never been cruel or agressive towards anyone in anyway with the illness.  When she is on a high she  spends money like crazy and is passionate about everything and wants to decorate all the time.  When she hits a low she goes down badly doesn't go out doesn't let anyone in doesn't eat sleeps all the time .  She is down more than she is up very rarely in the middle x

Thankyou nighty :hug2:

I'm not saying those things are true hun, I have bpd too and don't see myself as any of those things (i hope no-one else sees me like that either :hide: ).

I just want a more balanced resource that will *hopefully* help me understand bpd a bit better, without unecessarily adding to my feeling of hopelessness.

Re-inventing your life by Jeffrey Young, I found to be a really helpful resource into the various thinking patterns and consequences of BPD.

I know you wasn't trying to say that was all true honey.   :hug2: point I was trying to get across was that no 2 people with bpd are the same.  A lot of websites/leaflets etc sometimes paint a scary grim picture of those that suffer MH problems  ::)
