i've read alot on borderline and feel that it's--i don't know, i just don't know if i belive in it fully. i had a hardliner
mexican pdoc who'd grown up in the ghetto and laughed that "half of all white girls are borderline"--which to me signalled how lighthearted he was about pyschiatry; he'd been educated at Harvard but took neither himself nor his discipline too seriously...

how do you feel about the diagnosis of Borderline vs. Bipolar?
i feel as if they're both just labels--bipolars are a little bit more loveable than "borderlines"--oh, it just seems so sunjective...have you read *Walking on Eggshells* and *I Hate You, Don't Leave Me"?

//////I feel they're just diagnoses and if one suffers from either or both, it's through no fault of their own. I know there is quite a bit of stigma with Borderlines, but I've found quite a few of them to be very lovable:) I have read both books you mentioned - they're both good.

just the observance of a menial bookstore worker, nothing scientific.

////Thanks for sharing:)
