I’ve been overwhelmed with the response to this article. Thank you to everyone who is reading it, and sharing your thoughts. I’m very pleased its prompted debate and discussion. And so you all know, I have BPD, but I’ve recovered now, and am married and holding down full time work. The pain never completly dissapears but a good life is possible, and I’m rooting for all of you to battle through hell, and reach a life worth living too.
