There is talk at the moment of changing the name of BPD to something similar to 'Emotion Regulation Disorder'. I think a name change is the way forward, BPD doesn't seem to 'fit' the disorder properly and changing the name would mean even better understanding & explanation of the disorder. Some people have suggested 'Rollercoater Disorder'! Which, I think, is the best name for it! lol!
But, anyway, the petition to change the name is here:
And these are Dani Z's brilliant videos on her opinion on the name change, I agree with what she says so I thought it would be a good idea to post the videos on here for those of you who haven't seen Dani's videos on the name change yet:
