BPD usually refers to bipolar disorder not borderline personality disorder.

Bipolar disorder is a well researched and documented disorder but borderline personality disorder is newer and I think its diagnosis even in the best of circumstances is controversial.

Which was why the author would have steered clear of surmising that Diana had bipolar disorder.

I doubt very much that Diana had bipolar disorder. I was diagnosed with it fairly recently and it took them about 9 months to finally decide that was what I had and I don't see the symptoms of bipolar in Diana, I see a troubled woman with some underlying mental health issues (IMO) but I don't think those issues were bipolar disorder. It would have been fairly obvious if she'd had it.

In my post, I first spelled out borderline personality disorder and then used the initials BPD for it.

Even when it was first changed from being known as manic-depression to bipolar disorder, I have not come across the usage of BPD for bipolar disorder. Instead I have seen the disorder abbreviated as just "bipolar". There are four different variations and read "Bipolar Type III" and such.

I ONLY intended to discuss the application of the diagnosis Borderline Personality Disorder in my usage of the abbreviation BPD.
And while it is a new diagnosis, it is near impossible to conclude such applied to the late Diana without thorough examination of records which will never be released publicly.

I too, in no way think that Diana was manic-depressive. Her known symptoms and reactions do not fit.

I reiterate that I do not believe Diana had borderline personality disaorder either.
