A Farewell Message from About.com's Guide to BPD

By September 8, 2011

I write this post with a heavy heart. For the past three years, I have had the pleasure of being About.com's Guide to borderline personality disorder. I have met so many wonderful people through this site, and have enjoyed interacting with my readers and providing what I hope has been reliable, encouraging information about BPD. Recently, new personal and professional responsibilities have reduced the amount of time that I have been able to devote to the site, and it has become clear to me that it is time to leave and make way for a new guide to give their fresh perspective.

Thank you, my readers, for all of the support over the years. I have truly cherished the feedback I've gotten from you -- I feel honored that so many of you have shared your experiences with me.

I wish you all health and peace.

Your guidance and expertise will be missed. My brother’s wife has BPD and your content has been incredibly useful.

One thing however… What I have yet to see and that is really needed is a balanced teaching on these disorders. Cluster B sufferers are either labeled as dangerous or as victims, when often the truth lies somewhere in between.

People cannot be blamed for having these challenges, yet they also are often unsafe for others. My whole family loves this woman, but there’s no denying we’d all have a lot fewer broken bones, crushed souls and drained bank accounts without her constant physical/mental abusiveness and theft.
