Bpd is a serious condition, as serious as bipolar or schizophrenia.. in other words, she needs to take every step possible to help herself. For me, I was 100x worse when not going to counselling, and ever worse not on meds. I would highly recommend she at least sees a counsellor and if not seeing a counsellor/psychiatrist while also taking antidepressants that also stabilize her mood. I know some people aren't happy about the idea, but it honestly really helps. If she doesn't do either, it can be very difficult, if not impossible to help herself. I hope you can somehow persuade her into understanding how she's affecting you and understand that meds and help from other people really does help. All the best to you and good luck!

Taking dbt classes may help alot..im sorry you fight a lot I'm bpd my husband is finally learning not to blame himself it is me most of the time. But to be that person with bpd having your spouse listen and be there but not enable does a huge difference.
