It's nice to see someone who knows what they are talking about when it comes to BPD. I laugh (and shudder) when I read certain "academics" talking about borderlines having no empathy. Most borderlines are too empathic most of the time (emotional dysregulation) and although they do lose empathy for short periods while under stress, it never lasts much more than an hour - at least in my experience. The ignorance surrounding BPD by many, even in the psychiatric community, is frightening. BPD has 9 criteria and if you meet five of them you have the disorder. There are over 250 possible combinations of symptoms that can lead to a BPD diagnosis. That's a lot of very different people who are ALL being tarred with the nonsensical label of potential serial killer.
