Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

This month I'm giving a shout-out to good old borderline PD.  This nifty little illness is "characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and the individual's sense of self-identity. Originally thought to be at the "borderline" of psychosis, people with BPD suffer from a disorder of emotion regulation."  
Now I imagine some of you are thinking, 'Golly, I know someone like this...'  Well, before you go throwing a butterfly net over their head, recognize that BPD is really severe mood swings.  It'll seem like the person has different personalities.  One minute they will be friendly and/or calm and the next minute you'll find your pet rabbit boiling in a pot.  So remember boys and girls: borderline personality disorder - bad.  Caca.  Pooey.
