beckymug2010"Nobody wants to touch that," says More Than Borderline blog author Becky Oberg about the difficulty of finding treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder. The borderline stigma overshadows the real human beings that live with BPD and obscures their genuine suffering. Still, Becky encourages those with Borderline Personality Disorder, "Don't give up."

Our guest on this week's HealthyPlace Mental Health Radio Show, Becky discusses the borderline stigma, how she copes with it, and the success she's found in Borderline Personality Disorder treatment.
