This is my story of Borderline Personality Disorder: how the 5+ of the 9 criteria necessary for diagnosis (from the DSM 4) showed up in my life, and how I no longer meet enough of the criteria to be considered "Borderline." I am now in recovery.
What does that mean? Am I symptom free? Who am I now? What will I do stay in recovery?
This video is about 30 minutes long and is intended to bring you hope. It's also intended to bring our loved ones and care providers HOPE. People with Borderline Personality Disorder can and DO get better with the right resources and determination.
We must bring awareness to the treatments that are most effective and advocate for their availability to more people who are suffering around the world.
I encourage your questions and comments and will do my best to reply to all of them.
Thank you for reading and watching.
