Dating a borderline personality woman
There’s a scene in during Lily and Marshall’s break-up where Lily lets herself into his apartment and hides behind the couch, only to leap out when he tries to get close to another woman. But, as the heady world of BPD will teach you — it happens.
People diagnosed with BPD are as much as three times more likely to be women than men, which doesn’t help with the inherent misogyny surrounding how people think about the condition.
Impulsive actions, another defining feature of BPD, also popped up in my relationships.
Often for BPDs, they show up as substance abuse, or self-destructive behaviors such as cutting, burning, or binge eating.
Despite what these sites want you to believe, mental health disorders are not pretty, decorative, or glamorous.
And if there’s any condition that really drives this home, it’s Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), which takes the shittiest parts of being mentally unwell and runs a marathon with them.
