Relations with BPD people
can be extremely chaotic due to their "emotional storms" and
They are unable to have a "normal" life, spouse, childrens, friends with "real" lasting relationships ...
Their life is a true suffering because they show to the entourage an appearance of "normality". For peoples suffering from this disorder, behavin like "everybody else" for any length of time is a role which they act, whereas they are in a state of real distress.
At one time, you may have
come across a person suffering from this personality disorder. (often without
knowing this word)
We see certain things but we feel powerless to do anything about them.
The truth is that there
is always something which we can do.
As neighbours, parents, friends and relations, there are many things which we can do to help prevent this disease before it “sets in". It
begins during childhood and even small things can make a difference in the life of this child or young adult.
And once the disease has set in and real suffering is taking place and it’s too late for prevention, then we can still change certain things to
help the sufferer find a treatment and be cured without stigmatising them in any way.
We must act to prevent the worst because unfortunately, some patients do not hesitate to choose the "worst solutions " to put an end to their suffering.
We are of course looking for volunteers able to assist us in this "crusade".
Patients, ex-patients, the family circle, mental health providers, general practitioners, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, lawyers as well as anyone who feels concerned about this disease.
Yes! I would like to know
more about the way I can help to prevent the disease and help those who
suffer from "borderline" personality

(*) Citation of Tara APD "Borderline personality disorder (BPD) may be among the most stigmatized of mental disorders. It is often undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or treated inappropriately... Doctors and the psychiatric community continuously trivialize BPD or deem these patients non-treatable, often refusing to treat them. The public is by and large unaware of BPD.
Families of people with BPD receive little or no help in understanding BFD or in coping with their loved ones with this disorder". (all rights reserved)
