Borderline Personality Disorder was finally defined in 1980 as a personality disorder, but wasn't officially recognized until 1994. Since that time many professionals have come on board with this clearly real issue, but many still have not. Therapy is the best route for someone with BPD, but even that is hit and miss. The best thing to do is to turn to reading and understanding of the disorder.
This book, Stop Walking on Egg Shells, is a best selling opus about how to manage your life when someone that you love and care about has Borderline Personality Disorder. What is best about this book is how theraputic it can be. In a situation like this the loved one of someone with BPD can often feel victimized, but to read about these common situations may provide some level of comfort, to know that its not you, but rather the BPD that is the issue. The book is well layed-out and well written, so that it doesn't get too thick. It provides some great advice and coping mechanisms on how to set boundries with your loved one.
If you know someone with Borderline Personality Disorder take is seriously. Its not something that will just go away or that you can medicate into submission. Books like this one are invaluable. We highly recommend it.
