17 Memes You'll Love If You 'Split' Because of Borderline Personality Disorder
If you live with borderline personality disorder (BPD), you might be familiar with the classic symptom of “splitting,” also known as black-and-white thinking. People who “split” often have difficulty integrating positive and negative qualities of people or situations — causing them to think in extremes (i.e. I’m all bad or all good, or They love me or they’re out to get me).
Splitting can often feel debilitating, but other times, it’s possible to take a step back and laugh. While there’s nothing funny about splitting, sometimes people use humor to share their health experiences in a funny and relatable way. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best splitting memes we could find. We hope they bring a smile to your face today.
