You’d think asking what Borderline Personality Disorder is would be a simple question, but it’s really not.
Buckley woman’s struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder

YOU probably won’t have heard of a film called Welcome To Me.
That’s because the film, starring Kristen Wiig, of Bridesmaids fame, is currently only out on limited release and on video on demand services like Netflix, rather than hitting the cinemas in a big way.
At least one person in North Wales will be interested in the film.
It approaches a subject that hasn’t been broached very often before in cinema, the struggles faced by people with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), a condition that is little understood among the public.
Erin Brooks, 21, of Buckley, wants to see Welcome To Me, in which Wiig plays a woman with BPD who wins the lottery and uses the money to finance a channel dedicated to just one subject; herself.
That’s because Erin was diagnosed with BPD several years ago and she wants to finally see an accurate portrayal of the condition on screen.
She said: “There are films out there that people have assumed have to do with BPD, even if it’s not actually stated in the film.
“Movies like Single White Female is apparently about a BPD sufferer but it’s an awful film which just instills the stigma attached to BPD to the viewer who is wanting to know more about it.
