Getting hurt accidentally.

I've been getting hurt a lot lately, it reminded me that I read that people with BPD get hurt accidentally a lot.  I was wondering if anyone else has heard of this?  I'm not sure if it meant someone else looking at the BPD person and thinking self-harm was an accident.  I'm not sure what to think about accidents somehow happing on purpose.

I don't think it refers to self-harm... I've heard (and experienced) that others unintentionally hurt our feelings, like someone saying something with the wrong tone of voice or not responding to us the way we expected/wanted them to will hurt us whereas someone who's healthy wouldn't think twice about it. Something as simple as a friend taking too long to respond to a text message can hurt me, my thoughts will go berserk and I'll get super paranoid and start thinking about how they don't care and must hate me when they may simply not have had the time.

I understand that very well, sorry that happens to you too.  I meant getting accidentally hurt physically, like people with BPD are accident prone.

Hmm, never heard about that. Some people with BPD can be very impulsive (i.e. easily getting into fights) or take excessive risks (speeding, substance abuse, etc). so perhaps this could explain it?

Yeah, maybe from being reckless.
