Paranoia & anxiety: Paranoia & anxiety can ebb and flow in bpd, especially depending on what's happening in relationships. Medications can help when this escalates. But this needs to be grounded in an ongoing psychotherapy relationship that extends beyond specific training as in dbt (which does help also). Individual therapy allows you to review & deal with relationship patterns as they show up in daily life.
