Myth: Individuals with BPD cut or self injure for attention. Fact: Most individuals who engage in self harm do so as a means of self soothing. They often hide the fact they cut and are embarrassed when others find out.
Myth: BPD is untreatable Fact: When a person actively engages in a therapy program aimed at regulating emotions, reducing self destructive behavior, and developing a strong sense of identity their symptoms will be greatly reduces within 2 years and by 5 years individuals often will no longer meet the criteria for BPD.
