A Connection Between BPD and Epilepsy?

If I have epilepsy, then is it possible that my future children could inherit genes that make the preponderance of Borderline Personality Disorder symptoms more likely?

Not a lot of research has been done in this area. However, some patients with BPD, as well as their family members, share some interesting anecdotes on this topic over here.

It turns out that one medication used to treat epilepsy is also used to treat Bipolar Disorder and BPD.
