Borderline Personality Disorder? - January 11th 2011, 03:09 AM

I am starting to believe I have borderline personality disorder. I get extremely frusterated in relationships of any kind and act on impulses. I have ruined a fair share of my friendships/dating because they couldn't stand my moodswings. I have been depressed for six years, and I have harmed myself many a time by scratching myself. I've recently tried to kill myself with ibuprofen and planned to run away. I am starting to wonder if there is something wrong with me.

Sounds like something isn't right. Whether its Borderline Personality Disorder or not, we can't say. Could be Depression, could be hormonal stuff at your age.

I suggest if you're concerned about it, see a doctor.

No reputable doctor is going to diagnose you with a personality disorder at 14. Even if you fit the diagnostic criteria for BPD, it doesn't mean anything. At this point in your life, you can probably do a lot of valuable work on changing relationship patterns and emotional regulation that will help you lead a more stable and quality life. Get into some sort of behavioral counseling, would be my advice. It will make a world of difference.

At your age nothing would be taken in terms of a personality disorder. If it is or isnt's not really for us to say but I have a sister your age and to be fair, you sound just like her minus the overdose.
I've read a few of your posts and it does seem like you could be depressed but a lot of people seem to underestimate a personality disorder and how much it actually effects, thinking it's just relationships and moods with some attempts at suicide thrown in, is fairly untrue. Hormones are a mess at your age so I think you should keep that in mind. I would say professionals would be the best point of call.

Immobilized. Captivated and Hypnotized,
by all your evil lies.
