    I've seen both of these used and reading the acronym page doesn't help me. Which is BiPolar and which is Borderline Personality?
    Thanks in advance.

    BiPolar (BP) - bipolar

    Borderline (BPD) - borderline personality disorder


    Confusing huh?

    And I'm starting to think they can look the same in real life too! LOL!

    I've seen articles that abbreviate bipolar disorder as Borderline (BPD), just to make things even more confusing.
