There is no test or biochemical exam that can diagnose BPD. However, there is a set of guidelines one can follow to recognize the signs of BPD:

  • Repeated attempts of suicide
  • Frantic efforts to avoid being alone due to fear of abandonment
  • Long periods of anxiety
  • Anger that is uncontrollable
  • Doubting your sexual identity
    • Damaged self-image
  • Relationship problems
      • He/She is my world, I can’t live without them.
      • They are awful…I hate them, how can they do this to me.
relationships
Relationships
  • People and relationships are strongly affected by their mood and they are often one – sided
  • They particularly split their representation of the people and/or relationships, generally, to “all good” or “all bad”- meaning people are either on their side or they are out to get them.
  • They will often alternate their mood and they will change from one feeling to another (“all good” to “all bad”)
identity
Identity
  • Clinging to damaged relationships
  • Terror of being left alone
  • Always feeling empty
  • Confusion
