Raise Awareness of BPD

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) affects approximately 1.6% of the general population, though some studies suggest it could be as high as 5.9%. This means millions of people worldwide live with BPD. In the United States alone, it's estimated that around 4 million adults have BPD.

Raising awareness and understanding can help those affected find the support they need. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a mental health condition characterized by:

🌀 Emotional Instability: Intense emotions that can change rapidly, often triggered by seemingly minor events.

🤔 Distorted Self-Image: Unstable sense of self, leading to sudden changes in interests, values, or career goals.

💔 Fear of Abandonment: Extreme efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment, leading to clingy behavior or sudden withdrawal.

🌪️ Impulsive Behaviors: Risky actions like binge eating, substance abuse, reckless driving, or spending sprees.

😢 Intense Relationships: Relationships that swing from idealization to devaluation, creating a turbulent and unstable dynamic.

😔 Chronic Feelings of Emptiness: Persistent feelings of boredom, emptiness, or feeling "hollow."

😡 Inappropriate Anger: Intense and uncontrollable anger, often followed by shame and guilt.

🎭 Dissociation: Feeling disconnected from oneself, often in response to stress, like watching oneself from outside the body.

Recognizing these symptoms can foster understanding and empathy. If you or someone you know is struggling, seek professional help. 💚 #MentalHealthMatters #BPD #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #MentalHealthAwareness
