SD21 Borderline Personality Disorder
I'm looking for information on your experiences with Borderline Personality Disorder. My SO has DD21 who has been challenging, but she lives in another town and is not a routine disruption in our lives. There has been ocassional drama that pops up from time to time. I've been with my SO for about 2 years. She cut him out of her life last spring, claiming he was a terrible parent. Since then he only heard from her if she needed money. Until today. Today she called to share her diagnosis of borderline personality disorder and then proceeded to explain that he had "triggered" her in the past, blah blah. I believe this is a serious diagnosis and I'll be doing some reading. He seemed relieved to hear from her, and happy to have a "reason" to explain her behavior. I fear this diagnosis will be yet another excuse for her unacceptable behaviour. Anybody have experience with this? Any warnings? Suggestions? Anything?
As always, thank you.
