Eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and Binge Eating Disorder commonly co-occur with Borderline Personality Disorder. Here is a look at these three eating disorders and their common symptoms.
Brandon Marshall created Project Borderline to help educate people about Borderline Personality Disorder, raise awareness of BPD, and help people gain access to the resources that they need to recover. He also hopes to bridge the gap between patients, clinicians, and family members.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy seeks to teach people with aggressive tendencies to employ mindfulness techniques in order to prevent aggressive behavior. Through DBT, they learn to tolerate uncomfortable emotions by sitting with them before acting on them.
Borderline Personality Disorder is a condition that has a profound ripple effect, as the conflict in the primary spousal and familial relationships often spreads to all of those friends and relatives surrounding and witnessing the dysfunctional relationship.

People with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) frequently engage in self-harmful behaviors, such as cutting and burning. A recent study by researchers at the University of Washington and Alliant International University aimed to find out what triggers these self-harmful behaviors, as well as suicide attempts.
Cutting is one form of self-harmful behavior that someone with Borderline Personality Disorder may engage in. Because it can be easy to hide, people with BPD are more likely to engage in cutting than in other self-harmful behaviors. And, unless you know what to look for, you may never realize that your loved one is intentionally harming themselves.
