Men and Borderline Personality Disorder

May is Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness month.  As a woman in recovery from BPD, I share my story to encourage others that this is a disorder that can be overcome!  Yes, you may still meet some of the criteria (I still do!), but you can get to the point where this disorder no longer rules your life and dictates your every move.

You can go on to have healthy, lasting relationships, finish school, and keep good jobs.

And, it's not just women who are affected by this disorder and who can get well -- it's men, too.  I think this aspect of BPD is under-discussed, so I'm focusing on it for this post.

Here are some posts over the years on HFBPD about men with BPD:

Help Wanted: Men Have BPD, Too (and they are reaching out for help and deserve to receive it!)
Resources: Men and Borderline Personality Disorder
The Guy With BPD: Life as a Man Living With and Healing From Borderline Personality Disorder
Men, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Breakups


And, here's an article on the Psychology Today website by the Roanne Program (at Optimum Performance Institute), a residential program near Los Angeles for young women and men with BPD. They focus on the developmental years of young adulthood (17-28), but the article is relatable beyond this range.



What are your thoughts on this important topic?  Are you a man with BPD?  What have been your experiences with stigma and with getting help?


Thank you for reading.

More Soon.

In kindness,
Debbie
