I have also read the same - I researched BPD alot when I got diagnosed, and am now involved in a BPD information group... (we're int he process of lancing our UK web site - Be sure I'll post alot more info when the time comes!)
The general concesus (int he UK at least ) is that most sufferers do manage to find some kind of peace later in life... generally around the 40 mark from what I've read, but I also know of alot of sufferers in their 40's who have not found any relief.

> Hope i'm not bothering you by joining the discussion here, but i read different things on BPD. Actually the prognosis is believed quite benign in the long run. i don't know wther this different diagnosis depends on European standards or not . I can remember clearly i read that doesn't have a chronic path like most of illnesses do and that it can change for good if a person manages to go through the worst period without killing herself/himself. The article i read said that BPD tends to fade away as time goes by as a person grow older: Statitistic say that the worst period is believed to be around the twenties: as a person reaches the thirties, usually improves and the sociopathic features,relationship/emotional troubles smooth and fade away with time.
