Excerpt
but studies, esp. psychological ones regarding aspects of temperament, personality, and character are extremely difficult to assess when the main instrument used is interview and questionnaire

Antelope

I agree wholeheartedly with this assessment. I would love to see some corroborating evidence from the nons in their lives that the pwBPD in question is no longer a colossal p.i.t.a. to live with.  That would tip the argument for me!

If I think about my ex getting help or wonder if this mental illness can be cured; I think about what my therapist told me the first day he saw me. He said, "we don't treat people with BPD; we treat their family members."

Coming from a guy who is very renowned in his field; I was taken back. It was almost like he hammered the nail in the coffin on this issue.

But being a football fan; I also look at Brandon Marshall, the best wide receiver in the NFL.  He openly admitted his diagnosis after some behavioral problems early in his career; and he has from what I've read, become a better person in dealing with it; and he is a role model for kids now and a model citizen.

But this is a guy who makes millions of dollars.  DBT isn't cheap; and I'm sure he has the absolute best tx options available to him.

It's hard for me to go back down this rabbit hole... .but great if this study is factual.
