Mt question is directly about anyone who has or may have BPD/npd.

Has this person been involved in any type of accident or had any known head trauma/injury before diagnosis of BPD/npd? 

Yes / No / not known

My ex is undiagnosed but he has many of the BPD traits.  He also has an acquired brain injury from 10 yrs ago and retrograde amnesia.  Through the whole r/s I tried to understand his behaviour, trying to figure out what was caused by the brain injury, what was just his basic personality.  I had never heard of BPD until we separated and it has explained a lot.  I have a difficult time getting info from his family on his behaviour prior to the brain injury but from what I have gathered he always had an unpredictable nature, bad temper.  He was beat as a child by his Dad and when he got old enough he was getting into fights constantly.  I guess what I was really trying to figure out is if he could be helped or not.  I still have no idea but I couldn't take the emotional abuse any longer and ended our marriage.  I still question if I should have fought harder for him to get the help he needed. 


This board is intended for general questions about BPD and other personality disorders, trait definitions, and related therapies and diagnostics. Topics should be formatted as a question.

Please do not host topics related to the specific pwBPD in your life - those discussions should be hosted on an appropraite [L1] - [L4] board.

You will find indepth information provided by our senior members in our workshop board discussions (click here).
