My first exposure to BPD was many years ago. Totally unaware of BPD I was scared and confused. I had been previously informed that these clients were “difficult and challenging”. Afraid that I would say something wrong I maintained my distance and judgment.
Now after being diagnosed with BPD, I have had OTs and other health professionals (unaware of my diagnosis) complain to me how mentally demanding BPD clients are and how these clients are both energy and time-consuming.
Before we start explaining what BPD is, it’s so important to share what these people are NOT.
What are your preconceived ideas? Are your opinions fact?
