    Borderline Personality Disorder

    Any experiences in dealing with folks who have BPD?

    Yes and you might as well just hit your head with a hammer instead. Same result.

    I learned about BPD in a social work class I took. Horrible mental illness.

    But I have recently talked to some women on dating sites who exhibit the symptoms. One actually told me she had it!

    I was like: "Deal breaker!"

    Apparently 75%+ of people with BPD are women.

    I had a room mate once, who I think had it. And a coworker too -- totally wacky.

    Yes more women have it and don’t date anyone with it. Relationships are hard enough.

    All the time in my 22 years of psych nursing.

    It is treatable but takes lot of therapy over many years.

    Welcome back ultralite! I missed you.

    Watch “Crazy ex-girlfriend” on Netflix. By the end of the 4th season you have a full understanding of BPD.

    I thought "Crazy Ex-girlfriend" was about female empowerment, at least that is what my professor said last semester in the Women's Studies class I took.

    BPD - best to avoid. It's one of the several items on my no-fly checklist.
