What is Borderline Personality Disorder?
Borderline personality disorder is a condition that causes difficulty with regulating emotions. An individual with the condition may experience problems returning to a stable mindset after an emotionally triggering situation or event. The condition may result in an individual experiencing difficulty in maintaining relationships. It can also lead to a person engaging in impulsive actions.
The caring professionals at Rose Hill Center understand that the anger, poor self-image, and anxiety of this condition may linger for up to several days. The team treats every individual with compassion, and respect, addressing each person’s needs on an individual basis. The staff recognizes that the needs of one person experiencing the signs and symptoms of borderline personality disorder varies from person to person. We also acknowledge that each client must receive individualized assessments and mental health treatment.
Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder
The signs and symptoms may vary from person to person with borderline personality disorder. The symptoms may lead to the individual struggling to cope with life’s challenges.
One crucial fact to consider is that men may actually experience the symptoms of borderline personality disorder much more often than statistics show. Several sources report that men are possibly misdiagnosed with other conditions such as depression or PTSD.
The symptoms of borderline personality disorder may include:
- Unstable personal relationships due to alternating between idealizations such as love and hate
- Experiencing a distorted or unrealistic self-image which ultimately affects mood or values or goals or relationships
- Inappropriate intense feelings of periodic anger or difficulty with controlling anger
- Impulsive or dangerous behaviors such as unsafe sex, substance abuse, or reckless driving
- Feelings of dissociation
Other symptoms of borderline personality that an individual may experience include self-harm, feelings of emptiness, or periods of depressed moods, which may last for several hours or several days.
The compassionate staff at Rose Hill Center understands the variety of symptoms that a person may struggle with if they experience borderline personality disorder. However, we also recognize that treatment is available to help the individual manage their symptoms.
