If you think you have borderline personality disorder, it may help you to talk to a therapist. Here's a selection of the verified and qualified therapists on PlusGuidance who can help you identify and work with you to overcome this. Most of them offer consultations.
People with BPD experience severe mood swings that are hard to cope with. They may alternative between euphoria and manic self-confidence to deep depression, loneliness or lack of self-identity that can last for days. Anger, eating disorders, substance abuse and anxiety are also common with BPD, as are feelings of emptiness, panic, feeling misunderstood, boredom and irritability.
People with BPD have unhealthy, black-and-white ways of thinking and are unable to accept alternative opinions. They may have hallucinations, paranoia or hear voices, or have very upsetting thoughts that they are terrible people, causing them to seek a lot of approval from others.
People with BPD tend to engage in reckless or impulsive behaviours, such as binge-eating, gambling, substance abuse or self-harm. These are particularly intense during a psychotic episode. Anger could also trigger suicide threats.
BPD can put huge strains on relationships. One moment, a BPD sufferer may love a friend, the next this turns to hate. Add to that the excessive fear of abandonment and the BPD sufferer can appear overly dependent on the other to the point of pushing them away. The unpredictability or intensity of dealing with the BPD sufferer makes it hard for others to fully understand or sympathise, so relationships are often unstable.
