Hey, AJ!

As you can imagine, I do have a problem with the idea that any mental health professional would put their hands on their hips and insist that recovery is an "assumption" instead of a fact.

Gunderson, Zanarini, and other experts are all on your side. Recovery is possible!

Hi AJ,

I just came across your site and wished I would of found it sooner. I have lost a dear friend that had BPD to suicide. She truly struggled daily with the rage and chaos she called it.

She would find something in faith, with the hopes that she would be ridden of bpd, but it only lasted briefly then it seemed to all regress back to full blown episodes.
Although we had a very turbulent friendship, I will miss her dearly.

I wish you all the success in your recovery and Thank you for helping others with the same disorders.

Hi Wahuhi,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know how much it can hurt to lose a dear friend to suicide and one that has BPD. I have lost a few friends with BPD and a few others that I was in therapy with years ago.

They too would cycle between hope and despair, the light and the dark so to speak.

I really believe that our friends or loved ones with BPD who have committed suicide do live on in our love for them and that it matters that we remember them - remember the people that lost their lives to the disorder without focusing so much on that part of who they were.

I wish you all the best and hope that when your grief heals you will remember your friend for all she fought for in this life and didn't quite make it to.

Thanks for taking the time to share your loss, it matters, it really does matter. Just as your friend having been here matters tremendously also.
