I've seen that before, and yes, it is very provocative and intense. You can read everything that is written about BPD, but words cannot truly capture the experience as well as moving imagery can. This is probably the closest someone can get to understanding BPD without actually experiencing it themselves. I think the way the video explains "emotional pain" is particularly accurate. You know how you're asked to rate [physical] pain on a scale of 1 to 10? I always have a difficult time doing whenever I've had to do that (which, luckily, is not very often at all), because I always think "Well, when I was [blank]," or "when [blank] happened, the psychic pain was so intense that I thought it would kill me, and sometimes I even hoped it would, but this isn't anywhere near that bad," or even, "I have some degree of emotional pain every freaking day, so this is nothing," etc. The only good thing about that is I think it has given me a very high tolerance for [physical] pain.

The message at the end is very encouraging, but, naturally, it's impossible to accept it as truth.
