How do people live with borderline personality disorder?
It probably depends on what kind it is and how "bad" it is. They generally have difficulty getting along with other people and/or generally functioning well in relationships or at school or work; which can mean that the normal things of life and day-to-day living tend to turn into (for lack of a better choice of words) messes. Help for them is tricky because they aren't likely to seek help or accept help for this disorder. Another challenge is that BPD can be complicated by other mental-health problems.
