This episode became one of my favorites to research and I will be diving even further into the possible reclassification of this disorder. I know it is more than just a personality flaw.  I do hope you have gained greater insight into one of the biggest obstacles PwBPD must overcome. As I dig further into the complexities of BPD I hope we find some answers that may take us closer to becoming healed of this disorder. Thanks for listening. I appreciate it so much!

Season 1: Episode 5 Splitting Part II
Season 1: Episode 5 Splitting Part II
This episode highlights the defense mechanisms the creator of this podcast discovered she uses after completing an online quiz, listen as she unravels the defense mechanisms and how they can lead to splitting.  She briefly hits the defense mechanisms she most often relies upon when put in threatening or scary situations.  Remember that a person dealing with borderline personality disorder is more afraid of abandonment than any other thing.  Splitting occurs most times when a BPD individual feels the likelihood of abandonment is imminent.  They want to be the first to run from the rejection in an attempt to avoid the pain that losing that person will cause in their life.  Take a listen.   You can also follow this podcast creator at michellefightsbpd.com  Link for defense mechanism quiz  Defense Mechanisms: Test Your Unconscious Coping Techniques | Psychologia Imi Lo will be a guest speaker on the show  Date:TBA About Imi Lo - Eggshell Therapy and Coaching some of her inspiring literature. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Emotional-Sensitivity-Intensity-emotions-sensitive/dp/1473656036 NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) Home | NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness Living with despair, you are never alone.  Text or call 988 or text "helpline" to 62640
