they seem so similar yet it is considered 2 different diagnosis and have different treatment.

I've wondered the same. One difference I see pointed out is the cause of each. BPD typically involved repeated trauma while cptsd usually involves one trauma that is relived.

Yes this actually helps, seems BPD is overall really harder to deal with........

And while Im not diagnosed with either (Yet???) seems I really have more traits of BPD, though its possible Id have both.
But Idk

I would assume BPD would be harder to deal with since it's a personality disorder.
