ADHD and Borderline Personality DisorderMy first diagnosis, of sorts was received in college about 1967-68 and it was after taking some 'guidance counseling' tests. I was 'simply' told you are Borderline Personality Disorder, and that was the end of that. Dr. Olivardia provides the best and most succinct discussion of what BPD looks like and the similarities/differences between ADHD and BPD that I have heard since 1977, when I began my own quest to try to understand what was wrong in my own life so I could do better for my son, born in 1974 to a divorced single mom and struggling student nurse. I learned so much in this one hour. I cannot recommend this video enough to anyone interested in making better sense of their own life or the life of someone near and dear.
