What It Feels Like…
You are afraid of being alone, you always have conflictive relationships, impulsive behaviors, a persistent dissatisfaction with your self-image, and constantly shift your sense of identity. You feel empty inside, have unsafe practices, excessive spending, unsafe sex, and constantly threaten to take your own life.
According to the DSM-5 (APA, 2014) BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) may be associated with deliberate physical self-harm in the absence of suicidal intent. But another author (Thadani, Pérez-García, & Bermúdez, 2018), states that “its essential characteristic can be considered its recurrent pattern of instability in personal relationships, marked impulsivity, and self-image distortions that occur in various contexts of their lives.” (p. 90-91)
Borderline personality disorder affects how you feel about yourself, how you relate to others, and how you behave.
Signs and symptoms may include the following:
- An intense fear of abandonment, even going to extreme measures to avoid real or imagined separation or rejection.
- A pattern of intense unstable relationships, such as idealizing a person for a moment and then believing that person to be uninterested or cruel
- Rapid changes in identity and self-image that include changing goals and values, and seeing yourself as a bad person and as if you don’t exist
- Periods of stress-related paranoia and loss of contact with reality, which can last from a few minutes to a few hours
- Impulsive and risky behavior, such as gambling, reckless driving, unsafe sex, spending sprees, binge eating or drug abuse, or sabotaging success by suddenly quitting a good job or ending a positive relationship
- Suicidal threats or behaviors or self-harm, often in response to fear of separation or rejection
- Major mood swings that can last from a few hours to a few days, which may include intense happiness, irritability, embarrassment, or anxiety
- Ongoing feelings of emptiness
- Intense, inappropriate anger, such as losing one’s temper frequently, being sarcastic or bitter, or getting into physical fights
