Very true, but, I'm talking about as far as my SO mother's stunts. Last Thanksgiving was a major drama stunt. This was quick, but, just another attention getting stunt that always leaves me wondering why a an adult woman will think these things are actually OK.

Someone with a mental illness does not realize it is not ok.

I have BPD and I am sick and tired of the bad rap it gets.

BPD doesn't make you CRAZY, doesn't make you call your kids at ungodly hours then hang up on them.

That's what b*tches do!

So let me get this straight.

You've diagnosed BPD (someone elses) but describe Bipolar.

You also say that the sufferer CHOOSES the illness and behavior.

Tell me, where did you get your medical degree?
