Borderline Personality Disorder and Complex PTSD are often mistaken for one another.
Growing up I was bullied, endured repetitive abuse, became anxious, had a fear of people but it came to my attention recently what if these two conditions are the same condition?
Let me explain this from an ‘out of the box’ point of view. When you make a recipe such as spaghetti bolognese the ingredients you add or don’t add change the taste. Borderline Personality Disorder is described as originating from trauma and abuse whereas other personality disorders are described as existing before the age of four.
Why is CPTSD consistently mistaken for BPD but not any other diagnoses or personality disorders?
Is there a cure for the borderline afterall?
What if we change the recipe of the treatment methods…would we get different results? Yes, we would.
