    ^ Good link, @ Vert1go :-)

    Borderline Personality Disorder is a bio-social disorder that affects a person's emotional development. It is characterized by emotional deregulation, and those who suffer from BPD often exhibit poor interpersonal skills, poor emotional cognition and self-harming behavior.

    it can be controlled and that the person can lead a normal life while dealing with the illness.

    you can also talk to your therapist to get more information if you are seeing one on this disorder because I thought I had borderline too, but my therapist doesnt think I have even though I got a high score on every test I took about borderline disorder.

    BPD is prolly the most contentious diagnosis in all of psychology. Very heated debate on what it is and what causes it. I just want to say that all of my women friends who were ever diagnosed with it eventually had their diagnosis changed. Men almost never get diagnosed with it and guess what, that is also a hugely contentious topic.

    My take on BPD is that its like manic depression but instead of going between happy and sad they go between happy and angry. If you don't rage a lot then my guess is the diagnosis won't stick.

    I think CityofAngels might be right because I've heard a lot about talk about who has it. And stuff.

    You can add me to that list. Do you remember when my therapist was diagnosing me with BPD? Well, many professionals later, it's Bipolar and AvPD, and I agree with that. My therapist was misinterpreting everything, and I think he was just trying to fit me into the popular diagnosis of Borderline. I read a couple of books about those with BPD, and it didn't fit me at all.

    I find there is a much bigger difference between Bipolar and BPD though, than just sad vs angry.

    I think a big problem is there are only two important diagnosis involving emotional instability, bipolar and borderline. They need more categories for this, lots of emotionally unstable people don't fit into these two categories and get forced into them by therapists.

    Also, you already _were_ on that list. Doctors make some screwed up diagnosis. I have an online friend who got herself sterilized after being told she was schizophrenic and later the doctors changed their minds.

    Bipolar is not emotional instability, it's mood instability and episodes. The mood episodes last for longer periods of time. Months of depression, or many weeks of mania. Whereas Borderlines are known for emotional instability where they can switch within a day, or within an hour, based on their reactions to their environment. Bipolars can track their mood swings and are generally very responsive to the correct medication. I'm much better now on the proper meds for Bipolar. Borderline is not trackable and they need therapy rather than medications. Personally I think there is a big difference between the two.

    I think the problem, which you mentioned, is that there aren't enough categories for "emotional instability". Some doctors will assume Bipolar which could definitely be wrong as Bipolar is more genetic and biochemical. And if they aren't Bipolar, then they assume they are Borderline. The criteria of Borderline is so broad it could include so many people.. it really just seems like a diagnosis/disorder doctors made up just because they needed something to label all the "emotional unstable" people with.. it doesn't seem like a valid disorder to me in the way that it's defined.

    Also, you already _were_ on that list. Doctors make some screwed up diagnosis. I have an online friend who got herself sterilized after being told she was schizophrenic and later the doctors changed their minds.
    What do you mean I already was? Did you know about the screwed up BPD diagnosis before now? I forget if you had known, but it was awhile ago last year where that screw-up came to light.

    And holy sh.. your friend got sterilized? Really? That is.. just wow.

    Yeah, I remember you always saying that.. lol. I wasn't sure if you knew about it being professionally "revoked" though, that's what I meant. But yeah, BPD really didn't fit me. My therapist just kept telling me over and over that I was, so, of course, I got mindf-ked and started believing it.
