BPD Awareness WeekUnfortunately, there is much negative media attention focussed on BPD at the moment. It would be GREAT if, just once, this news was about appropriate funding for research and/or ensuring people experiencing BPD and their support network could receive the treatment and support the need WHEN needed.

This post is a reminder of the power of language to hurt and discriminate and the need to be mindful about assuming that because one person with a particular diagnosis behaves in a certain way does not mean that everyone will or does. The media has rules about this as this type of reporting is not OK. Unfortunately because a well-known person made the quote this rule no longer applies
