According to the Meehl Foundation’s free eBook on Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment, it is a type of mental illness, in which a person exhibits unstable behavior,and moods.
“This mental illness is considered extremely serious, as most of the people who have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder experience brief psychotic episodes. Originally, experts took this as a symptom or borderline versions of other types of mental disorders. The name was originally devised from the fact that this illness was considered a border between neurosis and psychosis.” According to the National Institute of Mental Health, BPD is a “serious mental illness marked by unstable moods, behavior, and relationships.” Added to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, Third Edition (DSM-III) in 1980, the disease is marked by symptoms such as problems with regulating emotions and thoughts, impulsive and reckless behavior and unstable relationships with other people.
In their free BPD Treatment eBook, the Meehl Foundation writes:
“People who are suffering from borderline personality disorder have difficulty in handling and regulating their emotions and thoughts, have a tendency to behave impulsively and recklessly, and have a high tendency to have unstable relationships with others. However, these are not the only problems these people can face, they have high tendency to suffer from other types of disorders as well. The co-curing disorders, which these people might experience, include depression, eating disorders, anxiety disorders and substance abuse. People with Bipolar Disorder are 50% more likely to also have BPD or BPD features. They also exhibit characteristics of self-harm, suicidal tendencies, which may sometimes even leads to suicide.”
