So - when do you know you've done your dash with BPD?
I think I might have just assessed one BPD patient too many tonight - feel like I've lost my nerve and have let all that uncertainty and doubt that we're expected to carry become overwhelming.

How do the rest of you deal with BPD patients?

Hi Speckle. 

I am a mental health nursing student who just finished a placement at an acute inpatient unit. A lot of the nurses would discuss inpatients they used to have with BPD and said they were excellent at pushing buttons and had select nurses they favoured (generally males) who they treated like gold.

I didn't see any BPD patients while working there but I would have loved to experience someone with this personality disorder after hearing the nurses talk about it.

I can't help with any suggestions but know that you're not alone. Sounds like they are quite hard to deal with :(

Perhaps best to start by saying they have emotionally unstable personality disorder. It's a bit of a mouthful but the American term, borderline personality disorder, is meaningless whereas the ICD10 term gives a basic understanding of the condition. Often, sadly, the term, BPD, is used to describe any woman with a personality disorder or even just difficult to manage behaviour. If you find that someone with an emotionally unstable personality is causing you grief it's worth remembering that no-one would choose to have a personality disorder.

BPD patients are emotionally unstable and I think they need proper counselling. There is nothing impossible if a person thinks that he/she wants to do. I would suggest such people to visit http://lifetrackcounseling.com
