Borderline Personality Disorder

September 16, 2018

Borderline personality disorder is a mental illness that affects your thought process about the people around you. I do not have this illness but I know people who do have it. Borderlines have unstable, intensive relationships that eventually go down in flames, https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/borderline-personality-disorder/symptoms-causes/syc-20370237, if only because they do not know any better. They are able to feel intense emotion and yet they are cut off from this. Borderline begins when early adulthood is reached. Borderlines have an intense fear of abandonment and yet they do things that will get them abandoned. Borderlines bounce around from idealizing a person to making sure they are the cruel one.

 

 

Borderlines who have bipolar 1 or 2 are people I need to dump. There is nothing more unstable than a borderline/bipolar person. Borderlines experience rapid changes with regard to their personality in self-image where they see themselves as bad or as they do not exist at all. Borderlines get stressed easily, which makes them paranoid. Medication can help with this disorder quite a bit. Borderlines are into risky behaviors such as unsafe sex or spending too much money. This is why I dump borderline bipolars because I used to know one who gave me a lot of grief.

 

They make sudden decisions like quitting a good job or ending a positive relationship that was beneficial to both parties. Borderlines make suicidal threats or engage in self-injury behaviors. Sometimes this involves eating too much or at the very least making bad decisions regarding why they put what they put into their bodies. Borderline can be caused by genetics or brain abnormalities. Serotonin is a brain chemical that helps mood swings. Some people with mental illness have either a serotonin or a dopamine problem. Many of these brain issues can be treated with medication. Medication is often one good solution to mental health problems of any kind.
