Personality Disorder

Borderline Personality Disorder

People with the diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) show a pervasive pattern of instability in interpersonal relationships, emotions and self-image and tend to be very impulsive.
The unstable pattern of interacting with others has persisted for years and is generalized to a variety of settings and often accompanied by a similar lability in a person’s emotions and feelings.

A person with BPD has the majority of the following symptoms: excessive efforts  to avoid abandonment, unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation, unstable self-image and sense of self, impulsivity in areas that are self-damaging (e.g. sex, spending, substance abuse, binge eating,  reckless driving), recurrent suicidal behavior, or self-mutilating behavior, emotional instability, chronic feelings of emptiness, inappropriate, intense anger, stress related paranoid thoughts. The person must be at least 18 years old to be diagnosed as Borderline Personality.
