What Is the Simplest Way to Tell Others About BPD?

There are many different reasons you might want to tell someone else about your BPD, but what is the easiest/simplest way do to that? Below I have listed a few different ways that tell people what BPD is all about, without overwhelming them with information nor going into too much depth that it makes it sound boring. If you want to tell someone about your BPD these might be the best way to do it…

Borderline personality disorder means I am borderline crazy – While a little up-front and in your face, it tells people what BPD means in essence, without going into too much depth. While I get that this is too abrupt for many, it might be a way to tell people in a rush if you are not comfortable with being more sociable.

Having borderline personality disorder means I am riding an emotional rollercoaster every single day – I like this description as it tells people you have your ups and downs, without overwhelming them with the extremes of what those highs and lows bring.

I have borderline personality disorder which is a mental health disorder, it means I struggle to control both my actions and emotions. – While a little long-winded I think feel this line tells people what they need to know with enough information without overwhelming them.

  1. I love the rollercoaster one and wrote a poem about it as we certainly are on an emotional big dipper… I added “with the occasional loop the loop” 🙃

    I was too clinical in my approach via Facebook and WhatsApp which I think confused family and friends. They’re understanding more now ad time passes. It wasn’t the best approach, I had no idea. “Borderline crazy”, that’s quite fun!! People will get that it’s a humourous statement 😃

  2. I straight up wrote a little something called BorderCoaster which you have followed. I greatly appreciate it as I am newly diagnosed. For thinking for so long I had bipolar, it is ten times easier to explain that than BPD so I would toss around memes on social media for a while there. And now I am not adjusted to this new label as bpd. People think all sorts when you bring up the term borderline. I just hit em with a meme..simple enough

    1. I always feel the word “psychotic” sounds worse than “crazy”, especially when telling others about BPD as the last thing you will want to do is scare them off.
