I've always been a bit chary about even accepting the existence of borderline personality disorder. It always seemed to me to be a band-aid to cover up people who were just monstrous pains in the ass. I'm sure you'll all be as shocked as I was to find out I was wrong. Scientific and repeatable study FTW!

Hadn't heard of BPD before, and quite frankly it sounds like it's nothing more than trust issues. "Genetic predisposition and early childhood trauma" are the causes, and I'd say that makes sense... people smart enough to recognize how many ways they could be robbed, and people who have been betrayed and hurt badly for it at a young age, probably do develop those trust issues.
