Hi Christine, thanks for your comment and I agree with everything you’ve said. Early diagnosis, and ditching the pejorative BPD label would definitely work wonders for many people. I use BPD when writing the moment, because at the moment unfortunately that’s what its called. However, on a personal level I prefer C-ptsd, developmental trauma disorder, or emotional dysregulation disorder.
