Borderline Personality Disorder

Posted By: Cean Psiquiatras

Borderline personality disorder is a mental illness marked by an ongoing pattern of varying moods, self-image, and behavior. These symptoms often result in impulsive actions and problems in relationships. People with borderline personality disorder may experience intensive periods of anger, depression and anxiety that can last from a few hours to days.

People with borderline personality disorder may experience mood swings and display uncertainty about how they see themselves and their role in the world. As a result, their interests and values can change quickly.

People with borderline personality disorder also tend to view things in extremes, such as all good or all bad. Their opinions of other people can also change quickly. These shifting feelings can lead to intense and unstable relationsships.

Other signs or symptoms may include:

- Efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment, such as rapidly initiating intimate relationships or cuting off communication with someone in anticipation of being abandoned.

- A pattern of intense and unstable relationships with family, friends, and loved ones, often swinging from extreme closeness and love to extreme dislike or anger.

- Distorted and unstable self-image or sense of self.

- Impulsive and often dangerous behaviors such as unsafe sex, spending sprees, substance abuse, reckless driving and binge eating.

-Self-harming behavior such as cutting.

- Recurring thoughts of suicidal behaviors or threats.

- Intense and highly changeable moods.

- Chronic feeling of emptiness.

- Inappropriate, intense anger or problems controlling anger.

- Difficulty trusting, which is sometimes accompanied by irrational fear of other people's intentions.

- Feelings of dissociation, such as feeling cut off from oneself, seeing oneself from outside one's body, or feelings of unreality.
