Article by a “cured” BP. The most interesting thing is this: The most important thing is, Do not hospitalize a person with borderline personality disorder for any more than 48 hours. My self-destructive episodes – one leading right into another – came out only after my first and subsequent hospital admissions, after I learned the system was usually obligated to respond. Nothing that had happened to me before being admitted to a psychiatric unit for the first time could even approach the severity of the episodes that followed. Should you hospitalize your BP? Maybe not. http://ps.psychiatryonline.org/cgi/content/full/49/2/173 No related posts.
