I remember when I had to explain to someone what BPD was. BPD is such a complicated illness that you have to explain it as if you’re talking to a toddler. Im serious this is how you have to explain it, because a person who doesn’t have BPD will not get it.
The first time I ever explained BPD, the person I was explaining it to said it was the same as having a bad day. *pulls hair out* I wish that was all it was, really I WISH!
BPD is so much more than that, so so much more. Imagine getting out of bed feeling like your “normal” self then walking into the bathroom and being furious at the sing, for no reason. Then having an emotional breakdown because the anger just takes over you. This is just a small part of having BPD.
These emotions can happen all day, every singe day. Its mentally exhausting and a lot of times puts us in a state of depression, thats hard to get out of. Which sometimes may lead to self harming (not always I want to make that clear)
So BPD is not just having a bad day, Its a lot of very bad moments, every minute of the day, for most of your life.
