BPD doesn't just affect the person with the disorder. Everyone who cares about a person with BPD is affected- parents, children, siblings, friends, and co-workers are all touched by the symptoms of BPD. Many of the symptoms of BPD (e.g., anger, splitting, and self-harm) can wreck havoc on relationships, and sometimes BPD can tear a family apart.
