Truth: Those with BPD struggle in phases

Individuals with borderline personality disorder, formerly called bipolar disorder by the psychology community, can go through phases of exhibiting sexual addiction, and phases of having healthy sexual interactions. When those with BPD have a handle on their symptoms, and have the proper combination of medication and talk therapy, they can have a clear understanding of what a healthy sex life is, and even engage in one. But when they do have episodes, they may then retreat to addictive behaviors.
