Demystifying and Destigmatizing BPD

Bold, Beautiful, Borderline is a wonderful resource for folks with BPD to step into their power and understand that they are more than a diagnosis. BPD is so stereotyped and misunderstood, and hearing stories and experiences — instead of just sets of symptoms or caricatures — helps the listener to know they’re not “crazy,” not beyond help (as many have been told), and most of all, are not alone.
