Recent research says that 1.6% of Americans have Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). This disorder is one even therapists can be reluctant to treat, because of many of the characteristics. Those with BPD feel emotions more strongly than others and swing from one extreme emotion to the next, and many able bodied people say they’re too dramatic and manipulative. All people with mental disabilities face stigma, and it’s hard to feel misunderstood. I think it’s important that others learn about this so that we can accommodate everyone in society.
