i think she thinks that people with personallity disorders are attention seekers and manipulitive. and only try to kill themselves for attention.

well she better not think like that since she's now lumped into that group too.

wow, the ignorance. i hope you are able to educate her differently. tell her to join this site.

to be honest her diagnosis isnt going to go away so i am going to leave her to teach herself that BPD is just as important and hard to deal with as other mental health problems.

she has to go into treatment for her newly diagnosed BPD so she will learn soon.

i dont have the time for her i know the truth and that is all that matteres.
