Has anyone watched the move “The Informant” that stars Matt Damon? At the end of the movie it is acknowledged Matt Damon’s character (based on a real life story) was bipolar but it is a good example of what people spinning and subsequently believing their own lies. My ex does a lot of this spin and then believes his lies as well though I always viewed that more as a pscyho/socio trait than BPD. My son has BPD and has nowhere near the spin traits that his father has.

Ironically I viewed this movie with my ex…..he was quite angry by the end of the movie and at the time I was totally confused by his reaction but I “get” it now.

New Beginning,

How old is your son who was diagnosed as BPD?

It is fairly common I understand for people who are psychopathic to also be bi-polar and/or ADHD as well as substance abuse, and funny thing too, more psychopaths are left handed than “regular people.”

There are a lot of similar traits between BPD and PPD, the manipulation, the lack of setting boundaries etc. But there are “levels” of the traits even within BPD and PPD—in other words, some are worse than others. Some more dangerous than others.

While there are some treatments for BPD that are somewhat successful, you must have a very motivated patient and a very motivated therapist.

Oxy, my son will soon be 24 yrs old.
