Not everyone with BPD is exceptionally gifted, empathetic, creative, or “intelligent”. The idea that any condition has to come with a superpower or heightened ability is an ableist one established to make us more palatable to neurotypicals. Oftentimes, there are positives to our BPD. But, for a lot of us, we read about them and feel alienated when we find they don’t apply to us.
We don’t need to be gifted or positive or palatable to ableists. We owe them NOTHING.

I can’t stand it. It causes so many identity issues when people call me by my name. I don’t feel like the person attached to my name even exists anymore. I really wish I could find a name or something that is comfortable for me to respond to that people would actually abide by. This is such an uncomfortable situation
