Depression affects over 16 million adults in the U.S. everyday. It’s hard to believe that in this day and age, there is still a stigma regarding it. Depression is a disability that can affect anyone. No matter who you are, what you look like, your gender, or financial status, depression is a disability that can be an unwelcome part of your life. People with depression have no choice, and need to have the support of professionals, family and friends.
Another highly misunderstood disability people suffer from is Borderline Personality Disorder, or BPD. This is can be a little harder to identify because the symptoms can be misconstrued as selfishness, narcissism, or thoughtlessness. People suffering from BPD will sometimes push boundaries in relationships set up by others. They may take items from others without permission, steal cash from wallets, ignore sleep boundaries, or ask about intimate details in another’s life that are not appropriate. Untreated BPD can escalate into more severe symptoms because the afflicted feels like everyone is trying to harm them. This can lead to malicious intent, and even suicidal or self-harming actions.
