¿ Help ? So what is it like to live with Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD)? … We want help? But also, want to push it away? Usually it’s our protective factors (Shelly is one for me) that keeps us asking for help, and accepting help. Accepting help can be difficult, it could mean opening up to people, making changes in our lives, these things can be scary, so we can resist and push it away. But really, everyone, even people without eupd, need and want a bit of help in their lives.
There are 9 diagnostic criteria for EUPD, and most people in their lives will show traits of EUPD. HOWEVER this does not mean that you have EUPD. To be diagnosed you must meet at least 5 of the criteria and you should always speak to a health professional if you think you do.
