What Is A Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)?: Borderline personality disorders (also referred to as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD)) are characterised by extreme and turbulent emotions, black and white thinking, instability and impulsiveness, and fear of abandonment.
If you have BPD you are likely to experience separation anxiety, interpersonal difficulties, unstable or unclear sense of self, suicidal ideation or behaviour, feelings of emptiness, anger issues and dissociation.
There is disagreement over whether BPD is a mental health condition, a personality disorder, or a response to early childhood trauma such as being linked to traumatic events during childhood, such as neglect or abuse.
Borderline personality disorders have a strong genetic component, and environmental factors in your past and present are also key.
