watching that stream, idk the temper tantrum seems kind of forced and he was playing up his frustration for sympathy or attention. like acting histrionic vs actually losing control of emotions. maybe I'm reading it wrong. I've just seen so many vidya meltdowns lol and this seems a little phony.for reference: chibi is getting emotional playing Mario Maker 2 saying "I just want to be good at SOMETHING, anything!"
yeah I can also only add anecdote too, but imo if your friend got knowledge that your opinion hardened in this way it would directly change when and how he discloses the specific diagnosis. also in dating bpd is often withheld until later in favor of softer general terms.My experience with these BPD types is otherwise. Used to live with one - once he got diagnosed it was just another stick to beat people or manipulate others with.
I think due to the heightened sense of awareness and pity that society at large bestows on those who are mentally ill - which is mostly warranted - they have less shame in admitting it. Further, because most people haven't heard of BPD never mind had to deal with these vampires the fact they're manipulative, self-centred evil cunts is lost on some.
In short, BPD is now a useful excuse for their behaviour as every time they do anything it's "the disease". You literally can't blame these people for anything.
However, when I hear "BPD" I hear someone admitting to be literal dirt. I can't stand these fucks.
