I was wrongly diagnosed with BPD when I had suffered a head injury in a car accident. That doctor, Rosalinda Rueca, lost her license to practice medicine for 5 years and never re-applied in Nevada. She had me on 4 meds, and the pain doctor had me on 3, and my liver started to fail. What I had had was a minimum of 6 bleeds (strokes) from the impact, and head injuries can mimic BPD BUT to medicate somebody with brain injury with BPD meds prevents them from moving on with their lives as their brains try to cope with the changes from the injuries. What's worse is that I discovered later on (2007) that I have a genetic arteriopathy which makes me susceptible to greater injury than the average person. The meds she had me on made that condition even worse.<br />

I think BPD is the most wrongly diagnosed "common" diagnosis going. I think ALL people should get an MRI before ever being diagnosed with BPD which IS mental illness. I personally think most doctors bite.
