I highly suspect a friend of mine has this disorder. Does anyone have experience with it?
From the BPD central website http://www.bpdcentral.com/:
People with borderline personality disorder see people as all good or all bad and have extreme, blink-of-an-eye mood swings. Their fear of abandonment, combined with feelings of emptiness and self-loathing, makes others feel like they're constantly walking on eggshells.
Some borderline individuals are suicidal and self-harm. Other rage, criticize, and make wild accusations. People with BPD suffer, and so do those around them. About a third of people with BPD also have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD); they are especially unwilling to look at themselves and their own behavior.
I have the gift of gab and I have totally had to walk on eggshells with this person. They exhibit the majority of the classic symptoms (that I know of) and perhaps more I don't know of. But I'm really at a loss of what to do.
Anyone else experience this disorder in their world?
