Borderline • Support Group for those Dx'ed with BPD.

Borderline is an online support group for those who have been professionally diagnosed with borderline personality disorder also known as BPD. BPD is NOT the same as bipolar disorder, but often co-exists, so those who are dual diagnosed are welcome too. This list was created to be a safe haven where a borderline can express themselves freely without fear of condemnation or rejection. This list is restricted, which means ONLY those who have been diagnosed with BPD are welcome. Please, no friends, spouses or family. There are other lists for them. This list is also fully moderated, meaning all posts have to be approved by a moderator before they are passed on through. This is to protect everyone's safety and privacy. This group does NOT replace therapy, but rather, to be an addition to anyone's treatment plan. BPD is not a disease; it is believed to be a biochemical disorder. This support group is a place to be you, get full support, as well as to learn about the various aspects of this complex disorder.
