Borderline Personality Disorder For Those with BPD - BPD Loved Ones and BPD Family
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is complex both in terms of how it is experienced by those who have been diagnosed with it and how it effects those closest to them as well. It effects the lives of those who are close to or in any type of relationship (bpd family members, partners, ex-partners, loved ones) with someone with BPD as much as it effects those who are diagnosed with it. The ways in which BPD effects those who have it or the Loved Ones in their lives are equally as devastating although not entirely the same.
The key to coping with BPD whether you have it or you know, love, or care about someone who does, is learning as much as you can about it. The more you can increase your understanding of BPD Ė as someone with BPD or as a non borderline, the more you can begin to learn to cope more effectively.
Recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder is possible. This recovery is the responsibility of those diganosed with BPD, Loved Ones cannot make someone with BPD want to recover. Loved ones, partners or family members cannot rescue. In fact the more you rescue someone with BPD, the more you enable them to stay the same.
People with BPD need to learn to take personal responsibility for where they are and how there lives are right now. Begin with that radical acceptance. No one can change the past and life does not give us do-overs.
Whether you have been diagnosed with BPD or you are a loved one I hope that you will find, at the very least, something on this site that helps you to understand more, to gain insight and awareness, and to begin to practice radical acceptance as you continue on your journey to find and live in and through a balanced wellness in your life, BPD or Loved One.

Please Note: This site is once again under-going another re-design with what will hopefully also make it easier for you to navigate and find what you are looking for. To that end, I do my own web-design and I am hands-on, and always have been, going all the way back to 1995, when I first created this site, so this means not only have I desgined the site, written all the content on it, but I am also the one now doing the entire up-date and re-organization. There are hundreds of pages on this site. There are back pages that you can still find in at least 3 designs (if not more) ago. So, I hope that you can focus most on finding whatever you might need to read or know more about for now as I change each page in to this newest design creation of mine, one page at a time, and as my busy schedule permits. -- A.J. Mahari, May 2011. By the way I have even more in depth information coming soon that I will explain how you can avail yourself of it. Please check back for more coming on that front in the next couple of weeks (as of October 30, 2011).
