    This was the most accurately detailed information on what it is to have BPD that I’ve ever read! Thank you!
    I want to add: I do think there is some need for control! This need being titled “power” in a parenting webinar I just watched.
    I realized I am stuck in the mind of me as a child/teen, struggling with never getting my need for power (indepence and control) as well as attachment (unconditional love) and always judged and repeatedly emotionally abandoned. Also born hyper aware/in tune to the emotions of others and this aided in the constant feeling of judgment and rejection.

    It sounds like reactive attachment disorder could be an appropriate diagnosis for a child with these symptoms, abs treatment/parenting advice is very similar.
