When relationships are a roller coaster ride

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a general pattern of instability in self-image, interpersonal relationships, and mood. The disorder usually appears in early adulthood and is thought to affect more women than men.

Repeated suicidal or self-injurious threats, gestures, or behaviors are common in the most severe forms of the disorder. These behaviors may result from intense anger or be a reaction to apathy* and may be perceived as manipulative. It is important to remember that these behaviors are directly related to significant emotional distress and that it is VERY IMPORTANT to respond appropriately.
