BPD is a pretty serious mental/emotional disorder that affects every single facet of someone afflicted by it. I don't know how many people have come across or been in a relationship individuals suffering from it, but they the stereotypical "crazy" dude/chick - no emotional control whatsoever. An example: getting stabbed by the B**** during one of her fits of jealousy, seemingly sociopathic behavior, can go from periods of intense attraction and love to a spouse to intense hatred and disgust on the flip of a dime. The thing is, it can really mess up with kids/families and cause psychological scars that last a lifetime. Now, mainstream medicine, in its myopic stance that everything can be cured by a magical pill, generally stuffs them full of serotonin and various other concoctions - never mind the fact that there is no clinical evidence whatsoever that doing so has any long term benefits to them. I came across an article by Drs. Blaise Aguirre and Gillian Galen on their book regarding mindfulness meditation and the effect that it has on people suffering from personality disorders. Here's a short summary: https://www.newharbinger.com/blog/how-mindfulness-changes-bpd-brain TL;DR - There is evidence to suggest that the practice of mindfulness has a very significant positive influence on the lives of people suffering from this condition. These types of meditation exercise the prefrontal cortex and amygdala, however two things to note: different types of mindfulness meditations work the prefrontal cortex in different areas and ways. Furthermore, the effects seem to be most apparent in people who train for 2.5 hours. This confirms a suspicion I always had that any kind of meditation needs to be varied and needs to be for at a minimum or 3 hours a day otherwise it's practically useless. Thoughts? I'm sure someone out here has a story or two about dealing with them (I do lol), and may even possibly have a family member with the condition. I just thought it's interesting that the more I look into meditation, more and more benefits keep popping up.
