This was a very interesting post. For those with BPD and are looking for ways of treating it, a really good website to check out would be http://OnlineCEUcredit.com/edu/BPD-tf. It offers a great video and information about passive response choices to help BPD patients better communicate with others. Hope this is helpful.

Hi loutfy

Thanks for your post!

Just like several physical conditions can be linked, so can mental illness so yes, people can exhibit symptoms of borderline personality disorder -especially with mood instability, but also more (click here for more information on BPD : http://www.empowher.com/condition/borderline-personality-disorder ) as well as classic symptoms of Bipolar Disorder - read more on that here and when you compare symptoms, you can see certain similarities : http://www.empowher.com/condition/bipolar-disorder.

However, someone with one of these disorders does not necessarily have to have the other.
