Canadian Disability Benefits can help you qualify for the Canadian Disability Tax Credit program and give you a firm financial foundation to build your future upon.
What is Borderline Personality Disorder?
Borderline personality disorder, also known as ‘emotionally unstable personality disorder, borderline type’ in some regions is an uncommon mental illness which begins to effect a person early and continues throughout their life. Typically associated with a combination of emotional instability and a greater sensitivity to emotions, people suffering from BPD are at a greater risk for self-harm and suicidal behaviors which require a significant amount of treatment and constant monitoring. While there is no cure for this or any other personality disorder, the money provided through the Canadian Disability Tax Credit program can greatly reduce the financial hardships which often accompany long term treatment.
Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder
The deeply pervasive nature of borderline personality disorder leads it to affect nearly every aspect of a person’s life once the onset of symptoms begins. To further complicate things, the onset of symptoms often occurs during the adolescent years when emotional confusion already at its highest point in most people’s lives. The emotional instability which comes along with borderline personality disorder can make this time even more complex and confusing which then further feeds other complications of the disorder.
People who suffer from borderline personality disorder also frequently suffer from difficulties regarding their sense of personality, as well as what they believe in and stand for. This confusion often leads to instability in interpersonal relationships, frequently ending with feelings of betrayal and anger when others fail to adjust to the person’s ever changing expectations.
