Borderline Personality Disorder is a formidable challenge for those diagnosed with it and for those who love and care about them. It is painful for everyone. Especially severely negatively effected are the parents of adult-children with Borderline Personality Disorder who do not want any help and yet may at the same time be leaving you very worried for them and angry about their refusal to get help. What is a parent to do? How do you cope?
I have been working with those with BPD and BPD Loved Ones for over 15+ years now. Knowledge is power. Understanding matters. Knowing what you are dealing with when your adult-child has BPD and how to take care of yourself and other family members is of paramount importance and involves learning more about BPD but also specific coping skills and the limits that exist in what you can and cannot do and how to cope with that.
You can read books on the subject of BPD and Loved Ones and I have written Ebooks For BPD Loved Ones and purchase and listen to Audio Programs I've recorded for BPD Loved Ones on this subject but it can also be even more helpful to speak to me as I am someone with a life time's experience with BPD on both sides of it. It is important to know that you need to learn the difference between rescuing and enabling, versus supporting, and trying to change someone who is not cooperating or able (right now) and how to radically accept and cope with the impact of being the parent of an adult-child with Borderline Personality.
People with Borderline Personality are often unable to consistently cooperate or recognize the need they have for treatment. I can help you learn how to cope with your adult-child with BPD in ways that will help you to reduce your own suffering.
