Yes, her point of view is what’s important. I was trying to say that it is difficult for me and others to understand why she suffers so much. People tend to assume that anyone diagnosed with BPD has had a horrible and abusive childhood, and she doubts herself so much. She feels like her feelings don’t really count if she hasn’t gone through the horrors that other people have. From her earliest days of infancy, she has been extraordinarily sensitive, intelligent, and intense in her emotions. She feels so much more than anyone I’ve ever known, and she can’t seem to stop the constant turmoil in her head. She feels like the world is a horrible place and too many terrible things can happen, and it is overwhelming. I’ve been wanting to respond to some of these comments all week, but the problem is so big, and it’s hard to know what to say. I appreciate the input though.
