This author’s site is really impressive for his bravery and insight.  He’s a Canadian man suffering from BPD and other mental illnesses who is trying to recover.  His illness started to show up severely shortly after his son was born.  His particular “flavor” of BPD involving a lot of suicidality and self-mutilation, but he discusses many other aspects of BP behaving such as the rages, problems with medication, and more.  What makes his site so remarkable is that he is a former mental health care counselor and therefore has a lot of especially interesting insights that challenge some of the popular notions of what drives BPs to behave the ways they do.
A inside perspective into living with a multitude of mental disorders from Depression to Borderline Personality Disorder to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
