Was i wrong for dropping a girl who was an alcoholic and who had BPD? ?

i was talking to this girl who i was interested in for a bit but as we started to connect more, after about a week she revealed to me she suffers from BPD and is an alcoholic. So i got spooked by that and i told her we should remain friends for now. she followed up with a claim that she scared me away (which she did) but i lied to her and told her she didnt and we should take it slow. 

Was i wrong for doing that? I grew up with a malignant narcissistic mother who also suffered from BPD and NPD who put me through hell as a child, teenager and as an adult and i didnt want to go down that path again as it has broken me in many ways.

    Why would you even ask this question?  Are you seriously considering dating this person?  Ask yourself why you'd want to do that.

    Dating women with disabilities takes a lot of patience.  One of my coworkers is dating a woman with uncontrollable constant flatulence.  They've been together for two years and although he has some lung damage now, he's very happy with the relationship.
