Brandon Marshall
He is an NFL wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins. He announced his struggle with BPD months after a dispute that resulted in a stab wound to his abdomen. He spent three months in treatment for BPD. He allowed a videographer to capture his experience for a documentary called "Borderline Beast." After Marshall announced his struggle with BPD 25% of people who suffer from BPD got the help they needed.
"I've been talking with doctors since i've been in the NFL. No one has ever helped me. I was praying there was a treatment out there for what I suffered from, and there was." Celebrities with BPD
Princess Diana
Princess Diana was not diagnosed with BPD but many psychologists say she had the symptoms of BPD. Those symptoms, as exhibited by the Princess of Wales, included spells of depression, fear of rejection and abandonment, sharp mood swings, impulsive behavior, such as binge eating and self-mutilation, and persistent feelings of loneliness, boredom and emptiness. 1st Hand Account During current case studies the subjects were interviewed and asked questions about what it was like to have BPD.
"My subconscious mind plays tricks on me. I was in a trans. I seemed to be separated from my body. My conscious mind has to pass on everything my subconscious mind does. My subconscious mind tries to do and say things that other people have in their minds. I feel what they think. The words that i can not understand are positive and Negative.' It means that i am trying to be certain about things. I feel like i am hypnotized. Did you hypnotize me? At times i have the feeling as if a voice was telling me to go to sleep and act like a child and be a babied." -Case 3 Current Research:
Columbia University and New York State Psychiatric Institute are conducting a six month randomized clinical trial of Dialectical Behavior Therapy versus fluoxetine medication with clinical management for patients with BPD with a recent history of suicidal or self-injurious behavior. Diagnosis:
A pervasive pattern of instability of interpersonal relationships, self-image and affects, as well as marked impulsivity, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following: 1.Frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment. Note: Do not include suicidal or self-injuring behavior covered in Criterion 5
2.A pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation. 3.Identity disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of self.
4.Impulsivity in at least two areas that are potentially self-damaging (e.g., promiscuous sex, excessive spending, eating disorders, binge eating, substance abuse, reckless driving). Note: Do not include suicidal or self-injuring behavior covered in Criterion 5 5.Recurrent suicidal behavior, gestures, threats or self-injuring behavior such as cutting, interfering with the healing of scars or picking at oneself (excoriation).
6.Affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood (e.g., intense episodic dysphoria, irritability or anxiety usually lasting a few hours and only rarely more than a few days). 7.Chronic feelings of emptiness
8.Inappropriate anger or difficulty controlling anger (e.g., frequent displays of temper, constant anger, recurrent physical fights).
9.Transient, stress-related paranoid ideation, delusions or severe dissociative symptoms Pros:
