NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is an academic medical center located in New York City.  NYP provides care in every medical specialty and is ranked among the top ten hospitals in America by US News and World Report's annual "America's Best Hospitals" survey.  “In addition to offering expert clinical care, our physicians conduct basic science and clinical trial research through our two affiliated, Ivy League medical colleges: Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and Weill Cornell Medical College.”

From WebMD:
Borderline personality disorder is a mental illness that causes intense mood swings, impulsive behaviors, and severe problems with self-worth. It can lead to troubled relationships in every area of a person's life.

Most of the time, signs of the disorder first appear in childhood. But problems often don't start until early adulthood. Treatment can be hard, and getting better can take years. Problems with emotions and behaviors are hard to improve. But with treatment, most people with severe symptoms do get better over time.

    Thanks everyone, for your positive feedback. :D Since we are a 'brain group', I figured it would be ok to post these vids as meetups and am glad I did after hearing your comments. I've found the vids enlightening, creating further appreciation for the complexities of how the human brain affects our 'personalities' and behavior. I can't imagine how exceedingly difficult it is to have BPD and am glad to learn there is a therapy that has been successful at helping manage it. Thank goodness there are people who dedicate their lives to finding solutions like this.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
