Conditions overlap: Although the symptoms you describe certainly are experienced by those diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, they are also characteristic of other personality disorders. They are also present in primary mood and anxiety disorders. Recommend seeing a mental health professional who can gather more background information in order to do a complete assessment and appropriate treatment.
