Stigmas at Work: how to spot them and what you can do

  1. While some BPD’s can function OK, I would agree that people should avoid BPD’s as much as possible because they’ll completely ruin your life (or in this case business). I don’t understand how just because you don’t “mean” to be an awful person doesn’t mean you aren’t an awful person. BPD people do make your life miserable and should be avoided as much as possible, and I wish I would have had warning before I got involved with one. It would have avoided so much abuse and trauma.

    1. I am sorry to hear that you have had a negative experience with someone with BPD. However, being an “awful person” isn’t a diagnostic criteria for BPD. It strikes me as strange that you would seek out the blog of someone who is actively trying to improve themselves to reprimand them for their mental illness. I feel it is somewhat hypocritical to say that Borderlines are harmful while attacking a perfect stranger. Not exactly what I wanted to wake up to on Christmas morning…

      I do agree that untreated Borderlines can be damaging to those around them, even those who are undergoing treatment such as myself don’t always have it together. It sounds like you had a terrible experience and for that I am truly sorry. We are not all cut from the same cloth, for instance my loved ones would disagree that I am an “awful person” or making their life miserable. If you would like to continue this conversation or discuss your negative experiences more please don’t hesitate to contact me. As I have learned from my ongoing recovery it can be really helpful to talk to someone on the other side of the fence to make sense of things. Happy Holidays, Heather! 🙂
