My wife is BPD so your experiences have helped me understand her and empathize with her. You talked about religion complicating BPD. My wife is ultra orthodox while I am neo orthodox but religion helped her cope better before marriage. BPD are more disposed to self transcendence which expresses either as her traditional outreach or your humorous secular outreach. I pray for your post secular progress. I would request you to make Eastern BPD struggles visible because we live in a quite egoless world not suited to make individualistic BPD stories famous. Thanks again for your contribution towards a world with more tolerable and meaningful disequilibrium.
