      Spot borderline personality disorder

      Statistics reveal that 1.6% of the American population suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), a mental illness that shows a pattern of varying moods, self-image, and behavior. They are likely to experience strong episodes of anger, depression, and anxiety. These episodes may last for a duration that ranges from a few hours to days.

      In people with BPD, the part of the brain that regulates emotions is very weak and this can make them run amok at times. They do not have a steady mind and this means that there is a lot from the environment that can change their aims and opinions on whim.

      The signs

      If someone you know is suffering from BPD, here are a few signs that will help spot it.

      • Appearing frantic that someone may abandon them and trying their best to avoid real or imagined abandonment.
      • Mood swings.
      • Confused over identity and an unstable self-image.
      • Inflicting self-harm such as cutting oneself.
      • Getting angry for no good reason, bouts of extreme and uncontrollable anger.
      • Major sense of distrust of others.
      • Chronically feeling alone and empty.
      • Being reckless and impulsive and indulging in dangerous behavior such as rash driving, substance abuse, unprotected sex and so on.
      • Recurrent threats of committing suicide or suicidal behavior.

       

      Causes of BPD

      The causes for this are not totally clear, however research has revealed a few clues.

       

      Family history: Those with a sibling or family member with BPD have a greater chance of getting the ailment.

      Brain structure: Studies on the brain structure of those with BPD reveal that there are indeed structural and functional changes in the brain in the portions that control impulses and regulate emotions.

      Environmental, cultural & social factors: Many with BPD have faced traumatic events in childhood such as abuse, abandonment and so on. Some may have also had a negative exposure to unstable relationships and conflicts.
