[QUOTE=bleedingmascara]Borderline personality disorder is characterized by mood instability and poor self-image. People with this disorder are prone to constant mood swings and bouts of anger. Often, they will take their anger out on themselves, causing themselves injury. Suicidal threats and actions are not uncommon. They think in very black and white terms and often form intense, conflict-ridden relationships. They are quick to anger when their expectations are not met.

-thats exactly me. does this mean i have BPD?[/QUOTE]

That describes me exactly as well, and led me to believe that I had BPD. It was enough to get me to a Dr. to talk to them about whether I had the disorder. Turns out, my Dr. thinks that I'm OCD instead (with severe self conciousness), and that my OCD may manifest itself in habits similar to those with BPD.

So, point being, don't be so quick to self diagnose. But - if you do feel as though this description fits, then think of it as a reason to go see a Dr. I was upfront with my Dr, telling them that the reason I came in was because "I thought I fit 5 out of the 9 DSM criteria for borderline personality disorder". So don't be afraid to come right in and tell them you think you might have BPD because of such and such reasons. Even if it doesn't turn out to be your diagnoses, just telling them that you relate to that description is a lot.
