This is a place for those who have Borderline Personality Disorder, their family members and friends, and anyone else who is interested in learning more about it.
We ask that you be kind, empathetic, respectful, and non-judgmental. Language that dehumanizes, personal attacks, and trolling will not be tolerated.
This is not the place to ask for a diagnosis for yourself or anyone else
That includes asking whether your symptoms "sound like BPD" or any other indirect way of asking. Only a mental health professional can diagnose you. You can find mental healthcare providers on websites like this one, by calling your health insurance company, or by calling a mental health clinic or hospital in your area.
While this is an appropriate place to seek support in dealing with a loved one with BPD, this is not the place to speculate regarding whether someone you know has BPD or to seek support in dealing with someone who seems like they have BPD. Again, only professionals can diagnose.
Please refrain from submitting memes, images with overlaid text, comics, media/texting screenshots, songs, and music videos
If you do want to submit any of the above content, then make a text submission (which can include a link in the body of text) rather than submitting only the picture/video itself. That way you can explain why you think it is relevant to the subreddit.
If you are feeling suicidal, please call 911 or give one of these hotlines a call:
