I feel like there aren't enough people talking about BPD enough and that it's mainly bipolar disorder and other ones like that. ours may not be big to some but it's huge to me. I want to know as much about my disorder ad possible. Does anyone else feel the same?

      I'm a psychology undergrad with BPD and one of my papers was about how BPD is still commonly mis/underdiagnosed due to stigma and all the stuff I found out made me even more upset 😒 And hearing people say "BPD is just Bipolar but faster" irk me, along with people saying BPD "actually stands for Bipolar Depression." I'm all about talking about mental health in positive and educating manner but sheesh can they please take BPD seriously and put more research and dedication into it as they do with things like Bipolar or Schizophrenia???

      And BPD is big! it's just wrongfully spoken about still :( it's one of the most demonized and stigmatized disorders out there (along with other cluster B disorders)

      Who are the people not talking enough about it? I've been diagnosed over 20 years and I feel like finally people without antiquated thinking are making bpd not a way to paint us like monsters. There are a lot of cool bpd creators. One is a therapist with it herself.
