I have read several posts where a husband, wife, or other family member has BPD and is also being described as emotionally or verbally abusive to others living in the household. Because we love that person, we are willing to take their abuse and dismiss it as an aspect of living with a bipolar person; but, bipolar disorder doesn't make this type of behavior appropriate or acceptable. Where do we draw the line between accepting this abuse because of BPD or seeing the abuse for what it is - abuse? Do we have to wait until this person becomes physically abusive too to stop accepting this behavior as a normal symptom of BPD?
