Celebrities who likely have (or had) borderline personality disorder
Princess Diana, of course
I'm still not convinced about Princess Di, and IMHO Sheen is more likely to be bipolar than borderline.
Agree about Lohan, Ryder, Love, Jolie, and especially Heaher Mills.
Charlie Sheen has done some seriously fucked up shit. Shooting people and other shit that goes beyond bipolarity.
Anne Heche owns this thread
I thought men can't have BPD
That POS Obama has Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Paz de la Huerta
She was schizophrenic. Scott on the other hand...
[quote]She was schizophrenic.
She was diagnosed as a schizophrenic early in her period of hospitalizations/sanatorium stays, but many scholars and biographers today think that was a misdiagnosis and she was really BPD, with the primitive medications she was given to combat what was thought to be her schizophrenia actually inducing hallucinations and delusions later in her life.
Wouldnt you think fat ass fish would be just a little embarrassed buying ide cream at the Kroger?
I was just there and on two different aisles these bitches as big as a buick were with their men, not actually bad looking at all, and teasing him to get ice cream and making a big fucking scene.
now, they probably make him go buy tampax for them all the time and act like there is something wrong with him when he doesnt want to go to teh store by himself and get Kotex... but when it comes to ice cream, they have no fucking shame.
pack it on sister. baby's got back.
R5, is that what Anne Heche has/is? I don't know enough about it, but she's clearly not normal.
She'd make a great Zelda Fitzgerald if someone would do a good movie about that poor woman.
Thank you, Dr. Bombay. We'll summon you again when we need assistance.
Can you look at this rash?
Joan Crawford was a textbook case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, not Borderline.
Please learn the difference.
mhb, you retarded worthless cunt, listen up: there is NOTHING embarassing about buying Kotex!
Are you embarassed when you buy shoes? Or underwear? Or toilet paper?
The human body requies a certain amount of maintenance, and for females, that includes sanitary products. That is nothing to be ashamed of.
Except of course to a retarded piece of shit like you, who thinks women smell like fish and are evil and disgusting.
I truly hope that one day, I can encounter you in person. It'll be a lot of fun.

R6, not exactly. The diagnosis is controversial because women are disproportionately diagnosed with BPD. Much, much more than men are. If I recall correctly, something like 85% of the people diagnosed with BPD are women.
Ooh, how cute. MHB wants to be included with all the BPD cool kids!
Sorry dearie, you are just a dick. Nothing special.
George W. Bush
Osama Bin Laden
r17 = BPD
r9: freeper teabag with BPD and brain damage. Also alcoholic.

Jonathan Winters used to sit around at bus stops in Toluca Lake grinning like the village idiot. Major genius but major odd bird too. And nobody ever gave him a hard time about it, almost protected him instead.
In some cases, like Winona Ryder, these people are just fine but go through hard times -- and every second of it is captured by the press these days. We love to bring 'em down, especially the former America's Sweetheart types (Ryder).
Gee I wonder why women are disproportionately diagnosed with this.
Could it be that MEN invented it and set its criteria?
It's a bullshit diagnosis to begin with.
Aka - she's a bitch - she's too strong - she won't conform to our idea of a woman - she likes sex too much - "she can't do THAT!" - so she must be borderline personality.
I don't know of a diagnosis r14 just that she herself has admitted to a lifelong battle with mental illness she says was brought on by sexual abuse by her father as a child. Having read more about her claims, it sounds more like dissociative identity disorder. Ugh...I'm glad I never read her book.
R29 Jonathan Winters isn't BPD. He's odd to be sure but not BPD.
From his Wiki page:In his interview with the Archive of American Television Winters reported that he suffered a nervous breakdown and spent eight months in a private mental hospital in the late 1950s. Although he was not given a diagnosis while in the hospital, he was later diagnosed with manic depression (known today as bipolar disorder). The comedian referred to this incident obliquely in his stand-up act, most famously on his 1960 comedy album The Wonderful World of Jonathan Winters. During his classic "flying saucer" routine, Winters casually mentions that if he wasn't careful, the authorities might put him back in the "rubber room," referring to the institution.
Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson how all the signs of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, not Borderline.
Bush, Cheney, and most other evil politicians act like they have Anti-Social tPersonality Disorder (Sociopathy) rather than Borderline.
Please learn what “borderline” means before you post.
I know what DSV-IV means!
Princess Di is classic borderline. Remember, borderlines are overly sensitive, overly empathetic, unlike psychopaths or sociopaths which lack sensitivity/empathy altogether, or narcissists which lack sensitivity/empathy for everyone but themselves.
What about Catherine Zeta Jones, the woman went public with it to let people know it's okay and there is treatment and none of you bitches even mention her?
Sorry my-bad she was CZJ is bi-polar
You're right, r30: Courtney Love, Elizabeth Wurtzel, Amy Winehouse, and Lindsay Lohan are completely sane, and are only cruelly mischaracterized as BPD by a phallocentric patriarchy bent on reducing their sexual pleasure and agency.
Thank you for pointing that out.
[quote]reducing their sexual pleasure and agency.
What sort of sexual pleasure and agency does a corpse have, anyway?
If Jodi Arias has her way, she will be a celebrity. She is already BPD and probably one other pathology combined, according to the mental health expert for the prosecution.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
