New category?

How a category for those dealing with what Randi Kreger calls "invisible" BPs -- the ones who are extremely high-functioning and appear to most of the world as "normal" and only act out around family or employees?

Hello, and thank you for your suggestion. We've found that separating the board into the various types of relationships is more suitable here, since our focus is on the loved ones rather than the PD individuals. What we've found is that different relationships present challenges often not seen by the others while the PD behavior is somewhat predictable whether low- or high-functioning.

Graham,
As with Moglow I appreciate your suggestion. IME though the same tools are applicable to PDs throughout the spectrum. Also the issues PDs present us nons with are typically very similar. I understand where you are coming from and yes some behaviors can be difficult to organize into categories.

Sounds like a really good topic for Common Behaviors which is a board for addressing the behavior regardless of relationship. Do you have some specific tools or resources to share? How would you see a dedicated board developing? Would the Common Behavior board work with a topic or several topics? If you start the thread with header intro post and then develop it further it can be modified or copied to include links to sub topics.

∑ Every interaction w/ PD persons results in damage-plan accordingly, make time to heal
∑ Individuation is one key to emotional freedom
∑ It's foolish to expect of others what they have no capacity to give
