Melanie: I am personally an advocate in that I have been diagnosed with BPD for 13 years and am working to end the stigma surrounding this mental difference by speaking out honestly about my life and struggles. My page advocates for mental health in that it not only speaks on the issue of BPD, but offers support and advice to those living with loved ones who have been diagnosed with BPD
People with this disorder also have high rates of co-occurring disorders, such as depression, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, and eating disorders, along with self-harm, suicidal behaviors, and completed suicides.
Melanie also manages BPD pieces of me
I want this to be a place where people can receive information, support, and advice on living with those who have been diagnosed with BPD.
I am not a therapist, but I am a survivor and warrior of BPD.
